First off, I modded this a couple years ago. Second, somehow these photos make it look like I did a competent job.

Using a hot glue gun to add some fun details was a great idea, though I didn't do much in the way off adding a whole lot of extras to it (you can sort of see a little ring I put at the base). I'm getting the itch to do another, so maybe we'll get a follow up.
