Well it's been a while since I've posted anything new on the Colossus. I have quite short phases of inspiration so I flit from one project to another as ideas come into my head. I currently have about 50 projects on the go.
After quite some time on top of my shelves I have finally done some more work on the colossus. After re-organising my bits box, taking out all of the building and vehicle bits from the drawers and putting it all into a tool box, I found enough parts to do some of the detailing I had planned to do.
Over the last week I have added control pannels and an 'ammo lift' to the landing pad and I finally got round to drilling all of the recessed rivet holes, around 3500 of them. Here are some new pictures showing the colossus in it's current condition.
