"This is a Steampunk conversion of two 1/35 injection kits, and as such
is probably outside traditional modelling boundaries, although the
base kit is military in nature.
"The vehicle unit is Vulcan Models’ Zündapp K800 motorcycle w/Steib
Nr28 sidecar. The figure is from a Masterbox ‘Zombieland’ series.
Vintage watch parts were used to create the ‘steampunk’ aura, with
cogs, flywheels, miniature screws, and various stainless flat-profile
"The large weapon mounted on the sidecar is watch parts and brass tube,
with a Verlinden MG34 gun butt and ammo box, from spares. The other
sidearm weapons have been modified from kit pieces, and Matilda’s
right arm has been converted to a pneumatic appendage. My one regret
with the figure is that I had to used an injection subject, where the
detail isn’t as crisp as resin, and the painting detail is perhaps a
little less sharp..
"While some of the model is painted – the figure, for example – I used
Andrea Inks as washes over the metalwork generally to create a dull,

girl, who definately looks like someone not to be messed with!"
