'Hot' from MartinC - 'The Thing (1982)'
So I thought long and hard about “Hot” – jungle, desert, cute girls. What to do? So I painted the hottest thing I had – a flamethrower.
This is the scene from The Thing (1982) where the crew of Antarctic science station crew try to kill a parasitic alien. I do get the irony of the hot round in the Antarctic. McCready (Kurt Russell in full grumpy mode) identifies The Thing and tries to kill it with a flamethrower. The creature splits into different human parts and the head sprouts legs.
The figure is from Hasslefree and head is scratch built from a head (obviously) and 8 pieces of wire. The flames are made from Chuppa Chups lollipops wrappers, the most delicious way to make flames.
The obscured poster says “Nobody gets hurt today” and there is Bob Hope of that happening.
