Terminator T2 T3 Figure Model Kit


Terminator Model Kit


This is a Horizon Terminator T2 kit I built.

It's made from soft plastic vinyl. The base I made from a piece of base wood and various leftover model parts, and weathered with a small skull and a scratch built Laser gun I made.

(The skull on the base is one I got from Disney World, from the Pirates of the Caribbean store. Though the last time I went there, they did not have them. Maybe they're not politically correct anymore ?).

The base texture was made with Elmers Wood Putty, and it does a good job of holding all the 'stuff' in place. Paint seems to stick to it well, though it can be crumbly if you handle it to much. It's easy to touch up.

The model is painted with Acrylic Silver paints, over a black base to fill the cracks and add texture. The arms are posable. The black behind him rod came with the kit for support. This figure is around 13 inches high.

The kit also included what looked like "base guitar" strings for detail hoses. Some parts were difficult to glue and attach together, but overall, it is a good kit.

Horizon produced a video which I used to have a copy of, that was well done and showed you how to paint and detail their kits. If I remember right, I think this Terminator kit was one of the examples they used.

Horizon made a lot of great kits, to bad they are gone. Most of their kits were of TV and movie subjects. In the end, licensing fees are probably what put them out of business. It certainly wasn't for the lack of kit subjects, they had many in their lineup.

I built one of the Cable figures (from the comic books), which was a fantastic kit. (wish I had a picture of it). I still have a couple of their kits today.
