Locust is here

Well the first 15 kits are in my hand and I would like to show you a few shots. Heres all of the bits laid out.
 A few problems that need to be dealt with though. 1st theres the ankle joint, some warping occurred down the line. Some sanding and putty should deal with it.
( edit: the leg masters is being touched up and recast, should have new parts in a couple of weeks.)
 A bubble in the body molds  leads to extra resin we dont want but a  1/4 drill bit will take care of that.

 A 1/8 drill bit will take care of the overpour in the locator holes here.

 Same here.

Glue both sides of the upper legs together, the pins going into the legs. You may want to sand and putty to hide the big seam here.

The missile pods and shoulder stalk. Be careful with the alignment. Id wait to the end of assembly to make sure you got everything pointing where you want.

 Antenna and sensor pod 

 The feet obviously. Gonna need some putty and sanding though.
 And before you know it a completed Locust standing on your desk.
 The ball turret underneath can be glued on of course but Im planning on adding a couple of magnets so it can rotate forever.
 Wheres a swarm when you need one?
