Default DA Land Raider

Last year, during the annual Hexcon convention, (All kinds of wargames, rpgs, cardgames etc.) I played in the Warhammer tournament. And won ;D.
But, as they say, victories always come with a cost.
And at that time, the cost was my prescious Land Raider. It was kind of a clichè, the whole event.
I had to leave the table, to drain the lizard, and when I returned I found my LR
"orkified" (crushed on floor).
After asking around a bit, I found that some damn kid had been "playing" with it, and after breaking it, the parents had gone "We have to go home now before anyone notice." So noone knew them, and I was left behind with a pile of very expensive plastic.

But that was then. And the last week, I have pieced the remains together, the best I could, and repainted it. (Still got the markings to go).
The front hatch was a lost cause, so I glued it shut, but the movement of the lascannons I managed to repair.
Further, the heavy-bolter was 100% beyong redemption. No way in hell it could be pieced together.
Thanks to the local game-store owner, I got a new one.
He let me rummage around in his quite extensive bit-box, and found exactly what I needed.
The only obvious problem now, is that it is impossible to get the plates on the outer armour on the LR to fit completely together, so there is an annoying 0,8 mm crack there. But not too obvious.
But here it is. Nigh completely restored.

Well, I did not think about taking pictures of it at the time.
But I can say that the state it were in gave me a lump in my throat.

Another casualty of children. I think I might put electrodes hooked up to batteries on my vehicles so that anyone who touches it will get zapped. Good resoration work.
