Finally Off The Table

So after the block painting comes the ink.

I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.

This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!


Final Touches

After a long cold and damp winter, a window of opportunity to undercoat the beast was approaching.

I still had a couple of last gasp decisions to make, I had been undecided on which sort of vertical thrust engine nozzles to use.

In the end I went for the larger of the types I made made.

I also added a recess to the upper hull and a couple of what can be called missiles. Although bits of sprue would be a more accurate description.

With all the engine nozzles finally glued on, it is looking pretty good.

I added more than a few rivets…

I still really like the rear view, the engine configuration looks great.

So now it is ready for undercoating.

Landing Engine Nozzles

I needed four more rocket nozzles for the transporter landing engines. As I have not been painting much recently, mainly due to building this monster, I have not been accruing very many of the Vallejo/Army Painter paint lids.

So instead I have made four larger nozzles from white wood glue containers.

Note sure if I will use these as I have some other lids from water bottles to try out…

I could actually do with four more of the other lids used on the rear of the transporter so at least they would all be the same style.
