Shrink-wrapped for Freshness!

Only the fact that a hummock of heathery sand intercepted the lower part of the Heat-Ray saved them.
H.G.Wells. The War of the Worlds
 I've been having fun with my newest toy: the heat gun! Far safer than open flame, it has a variety of applications (including paint removal).
 

It's awesome.


Dead Fred has now been shrink-wrapped with layers of plastic sheeting giving him a flesh-like covering. I'll stain the plastic of his torso and follow up with a paint job so he'll looks less like a burn victim who was playing with a heat gun.


Fred's got guts - made of Great Stuff! His head is also filled with foam for greater sturdiness.
I'm especially happy with the way the neck turned out.
