Conversion - The Thing - part 2

In my previous post I showed you the piece that was my inspiration for this conversion. In this post I will show you how I fit a few of the pieces together.

After I cut the front piece of the carapace in half I had to figure out how to put the torso with the weeping guts inside the rear torso piece

I busted out the Dremel tool and went to work. I hollowed the piece out in no time flat and the torso fit remarkably well. I cleaned up the inside with an exacto knife and glued the torso in place.

Next post I will show you the piece assembled for painting.
