    Did you fill it inside? The tail was posed with heat before painting? Ordered one like that yesterday, can't wait to build it lol
  • Michael Fawcett 3y

    Yes , the tail was positioned by softening with boiling water and setting with cold. I didn't fill it inside, but the last tail segment has 3 or 4 wire coat hanger wires in because the curve wouldn't stay put. In each finger I bent a wire coat hanger in two and stuffed it in to change the position of each one - again fingers tended to straighten out over a few days if just positioned with hot water. Mine's about fifteen years old, pre flickr and a bit dusty. Enjoy your build and post the progress :-)

    I wrapped the wire with tape.

    hi im a keen model of alien stuff i have got a halcyon queeen alien which is in a line to be built after i finish my lastest model ,so any help would be great , what would you say the best stuffing would be ,,wet newapaper as it can be moldedminto shape or cotton wooland what did you stuff yours with thanks
  • Michael Fawcett 3y

    I didn't use any stuffing, just wire coat hangers taped together with masking tape. If I was doing it again (i made this about 20 years ago) I would use kitchen towel and PVA glue to pack it out and then tape/clamp in place til it was dry. Let me know how it goes... And post pictures :-)
