Quinjet Quick Build

This is yet another cheap eBay purchase that I thought would make either good scenery or a good flyer for a game, an Avengers Quinjet. I did not buy it new in a box, but this is how it was originally sold…

The shape is good, I am not planning to do anything much with this model, but I did want some undercarriage as I did not like the way the fuselage just sat on the ground.

I have cut some mdf wheels so I thought I would make some chunky undercarriage.

It was a bit too chunky for my liking, so I added some bodywork to cover most of it up.

I am going to add some magnets inside the wings for weapon mounts and then I need to decide if I am going to add any flying base mount before I glue the two halves together.


Not Too Hot For Zombies!

So it may be too hot to paint, but as some fellow gamers have mentioned, it is not too hot to make stuff ready for painting. I spent some time in the garden removing zombie bits from sprues and cleaning up the mould lines, just about as much as I could manage in the heat. Every now and then a bit would ping out of my sweaty fingers and land nearby. But as there is no grass worth mentioning, any errant bits were very easy to find, I did not lose a thing!

These are Wargames Factory zombies, not the most detailed of models, but that is fine as I will be speed painting these. Twenty more to go…

What’s On The Table?

The upper hull is about done.

The nose cone is removable and reveals…

…an embarkation point for models.

As you can see, I added a few rivets…

…and a missile launch module

The engines will get glued into a fixed position, when they rotate, the paint on the supporting arms gets scratched off as the engine body moves, a pain in the butt.

Looking good, time to start on the lower hull.
