AT-ST stop motion model - Building the legs

The AT-ST from Empire is different from the Return AT-ST in many ways. The most noticeable thing is the legs proportions. The middle part of the legs is way longer than the one of the Return AT-ST. It makes the Empire AT-ST more graceful and delicate than the ROTJ one, but it also makes it looking weak.

 

Upper legs

Fitting the kit parts to detail the metal armature (hero side). On the second pic, the parts are glued with CA.

Upper legs

The metal armature has been scratched with an X-Acto to allow the kitparts to bond strongly on the alloy. A lot of nice undercut which will show up once the whole model painted.

Middle legs

The first pic is the outer left leg while the second is the inner right leg. They were detailled differently, I dont know why. The whitekit parts used on the middle legs are from a very rare and expensive OOP kit. I bought a built model then I stripped the parts and the paint off to use them on my model.

Feet

.

I havent taken any pic of the feet under construction. ILM used the MPC Darth Vader's TIE Fighter kit to make the feet (lower hatch and a part of the hull cut off the lower half of the cockpit). Other parts are from 1/12 Formula one kits, 1/25 Russian tank etc...
