George Oblique Stroke XR40

Post by Avengerholic »

George Oblique Stroke XR40 is to be completed later this month after spending over 5 years wrapped in polythene as an unfinished project left abandoned in the attic. My good friend Adam is going to finish him off using my old plans. And with todays tech I hope him to have built in sound effects from the show. I literally can't wait :D

Thanks and without. I know it's only a TV show and George isn't real, but I've always found the assassination attempts on him a bit sad :roll:

Yay, all his panels are now cut and screwed into place :D A good fill and a sanding down and he's ready for finishing.

Thanks. Yes the phones are cool, My kitchen is like an American Diner so it fits in well.

I love George, I really want to see him completed. Finishing George, building the one arm bandit Time Machine and an upgrade of my 'The General' prop are the only three things I wanted to do to complete my Avengers prop project. Sadly I doubt the last two on the list will ever be done now, not by me anyway.
