Here’s where we left off the build last time:
Kharandon Beardy-Face now Mini-Gun Angry Face!
Deciding to leave the guns alone for a bit, it was time for some work on the stern of the ship.
Took some 1/35th tank parts, part of a Space Marine Centurion power-pack, and lengths of old wire – mostly DC power leads and bits of Iphone cable my daemon-cat has chewed off electronic devices around the house – and threw it all together into some tech detail that nobody will ever see again after this.
Next – the McQue-esque engine cut-out.
Eyeballed the curve on the hull halves, drew a reference line, took one of those “O frack what am I about to do?” breaths, and let rip with the Dremel…
Then took some engine parts from the Space Marine vehicle range, added some caps from those kids squeezy mini-bladders and sketched out some thrusters:
Might have to trim a fraction more out of the hull where the nozzles are just touching, but I like it so far:
Remember, this is upside down for construction purposes – the skiff flies the right way up!
Then it was back to the guns.
Added some detail to the back of the twin-linked cannon using a part from a Hemlock Wraithfighter, a random plastic ring from something cut in two, and another 1/35th tank part cut in half to get the two yellow bits:
And then finally got both upper and lower weapons in place for a pic:
Still lots to do but I’m feeling the vibe with this one!
Thanks for looking!
