It's always bothered me that the packaged clone for the AT-RT didn't look anything like the one on the package. So I took a carded AT-RT Driver and made him look like the one on the package. Here are the results.

I love it.  Great to see a white version of this guy, as I'm sure the Empire had all white ones spread throughout other systems.  How did you paint him?  It looks fantastic and production quality.

Thanks Chewie. I tried to get as close as possible to the picture. I had to do three cotes of white to cover the green. Then I used a black pen to fill in the areas the white got into. Simple repaint.

If Hasbro made that, I'd buy it.  Good job.

Yah, I keep bending it back in shape. It keeps returning to that direction.  :-\

I though about that. I wanted it to look like the box.

damn it Phruby thats the second custom you've beaten me to, i just finished my Carnor Jax and i was going to start on doing one of these to go with my sqaud of clones.  he looks really good though hopefully mine will live up to looking so good.  do you have problems with the paint chipping on those shoulder joints?

Good stuff Phruby - very clean paint job.  I tried painting an AT-RT Driver white but the paint kept chipping where the pouch on his belt rubs against the right leg.  I think I might have applied too much paint (layer of white spray paint, layer of acrylic white). 

What is that micron pen you're talking about?  Is it like those Sharpie marker pens?  Do you prefer that to a paint brush and acrylics or was it just because you had it handy?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Pigma Micron pens by Sakura are graphic art / drafting pens you can buy at any craft store. Basically they give a nice fine line when drawing on plastic. They are fantastic for drawing eyes and filling in tight spaces. I use them mostly for touch up work. They come in six colors and varing thickness. I use a .005 thickness for eyes. They are a little expensive at a couple of dollars a piece but worth it.

I use these all the time for modeling, especially doing panel lines on my Gundam model kits, they work great!


Wow, I really like this.  I agree that you should leave it white - I like how he looks like the box and isn't all weathered yet!  After all, that armor has to be new at least once, right?  ;)

Since I'll never own a real Vlix, here is my bootleg version.
