Little Bear's Custom CAV
My son and I spent the day painting miniatures and building model kits. It was a good day.
Here's his custom CAV, built from parts from my bits box. It has the torso and missile launcher of a Sovereign, the weapon arms of a Gladiator II, and the legs of an old hand-sculpt Dictator. Dad had to add some stacked #10 washers to the shoulders to compensate for different hole sizes, and a bit of Magic Sculpt under the torso to adapt the torso to the slanted hips, but the paintjob is pure Little Bear.
He's 7, and already has been exposed to the geek virus his father carries. Is it wrong to infect your children with your own madness? Maybe...unless that madness is, of course, mecha madness.
