Going in I had a good idea of what I had in mind, but along the way there were issues that cropped up. Now that I got the overall structure pretty much flushed out I can get on with all the little details and clean up the multiple gaps between kits.
Keep in mind this is a very rough early look at the project. Big Red at BoLS is a taskmaster for hobby articles so I figure this will keep him in check for a week (j/k) There is still a lot to go back and fix/ glue down, panel out and more parts to be added. Believe it or not the interior is still intact (and the ramp doors still open and close) so I will even be going back to paint that. Unfortunately that mean some of the panels can't be permanently attached yet.
I've been taking pics along the way so I'll have a in depth step by step guide to the conversion once I get it completed (hopefully in a week). Here is a brief list of things yet to be added, and below that PICS!
- Landing gear
- Front stubby wings, with HB underslung
- Land raider hatches (where black sharpie marks are)
- 2nd S foil wing similar to T- Hawk?
- Lots of armor plating
- 45 Degree Fillet structure on the bottom connecting the front half to back
- 4x Bloodstrike Missiles
I'd really like some feedback on this project, so please lets hear your .02! Yes the dread is attached by a magnetic clamp, how's it look?
