The Croydon Crusher

What a fabulous miniature!  The Croydon Crusher is a motor quad bike thingy from Mutton Chop Miniatures complete with handle bar mounted machine gun!  I ordered this on Thursday night and it arrived today which is excellent customer service.  The casting quality is absolutely fabulous, there was virtually no flash at all.  I needed to refer to the website to work out what went where but it went together in about five minutes with a spot of superglue and accelerator for good measure it was all together and ready for spraying.  I'll be trying to get it painted tomorrow and will try to get some pics up.  Not sure about the paint scheme though.  This will be used by my British Militia so I don't want to make it too military.  I'm torn between a British Racing Green or Sports Car red gloss finish.  The dark grey finish on the Mutton Chops website is very appropriate to the period but a little mour dour than I think this wonderful miniature deserves!

Here's the chap all undercoated and ready for painting.  The rider is not glued down yet as it'll be easier to paint him separate to the quad itself.
