Trash Bashing a Dralasite Observation Speeder

The Dralasite observation speeder, "Poogie's Punchline".
Shown are crew-members Poogie, Drizzyl, and Hamook.
Thanks to James Hall for his "Barrels and Bottle-tops" challenge on the Trash Bash Bits Facebook page. The challenge was to use the standard barrel shape created by gluing two bottle caps together in a new and interesting way.

My entry is a Dralasite Observation Speeder, a fast, long-range flyer designed to explore a planet's surface and to be able to out-run anything that might want to do it harm.

After first building the engines out of several types of caps, I then found a broken kitchen timer to use as the hull. The rest just developed organically as I glued stuff together.

I wish I would have had more time to add more detail to this and for a better paint-job but sometimes speed is of the essence.

The metal bits on the back are from Jeff Wilhelm at Dragon Forge Design:

Painting A Reaper Bones Shoggoth

A very simple paint-job to become more used to the Reaper Bones material. Using a dedicated brush-on primer like Citadel Undercoat really worked better than standard black paint. Damp-brushing, dry-brushing, and washes make this a quick and effective project.
