Main Eng][ne

With the thrusters completed (for the moment anyway) moved on to detailing the removable top deck plate.

Found some 1/35th tank drive wheels, a Landraider turret ring, and a Space Marine bike wheel,  glued them together to make a bit of an engine, then cut them in half – you’ll see why shortly:

As there’s a switch and battery pod under the deck plate, I’m going to have to fake the look of the supposedly cylindrical upper engine section, so built the small edge around the inner rectangular shape of the deck plate:

Here’s the engine sections fitted into the cutout – the main intakes are two Space Marine backpacks with a small turbine fan from one of the Space Marine flyers added:

And here’s how it sits with the main turret in place:

Thanks for looking!
