Aurora Saber Tooth Cat

Postby BlackSheep214 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:43 pm

Over the weekend I was looking for some old photos and I came across this old snap kit I never knew I held on to all these years. One half of the leg is missing - most likely I missed it up in the garage dormer and base is definitely missing because I never saved it. Looks like it's gonna be a future project down the road. The only painted area was the tongue. Everything else was left unpainted.

Hah! I remember those kits! Me and my best friend back then had most of those kits in the series. We had all the bases set up together when we would play with them... good times! :hmm:

I did too. Wished I had held onto them to this day. They were fun times indeed.
