The build is complete

Here are the pictures of the last additions to my Thunderhawk gunship. The only thing missing is the hard points for the hell strike missiles.

Next Step will be a coat of PVA mixt with black paint to make it more resilient against damage . The black paint is added to be able to see that the PVA was brushed on the complete model , it also makes it easier when I start to add rivets and screws to the model as these are made from magic sculpt , which is white when dry. So I can see more easily where I mist some.

 

Progress on my Space Marine gunship

I did some more work on my Thunderhawk gunship over the last weeks .

I did some more work on the underside of the fuselage and the main wings and engines.

I added the attack wings  which are magnetized to make them movable. Here is a short video about the attack wings moving:

Here are a few pictures of the gunship. The weapons and landing gear are still missing.

Here is the Landinggear:

And here is what it looks like at the moment:

The 4 twin heavy bolsters at the nose of the fuselage and under the main wings as well as the hell strike missiles are still missing. When these are added a first basecoat of a mixture of PVA and paint will be applied to harden the polystyrene. Then I will add rivets and screws and then painting will start. So a lot more work to do but I think most of the work has been done.

Another year has gone by and the Crisis Convention in Antwerp isn’t far off anymore . I am really looking forward to the convention, which is the best miniature and wargaming convention in Europe (that is on the continent) . There is only one bigger one in London called Salute. ¬†The Tin Soldiers of Antwerp always do a grand job on the day and in the months before to be able to present such a marvelous show. Cudos to you Tin Soldiers!

This years free miniature is Till Eulenspiegel, sculpted by my good friend Paul Hicks.

The list of clubs is here.

Here are the maps with the layout of the two halls at the Hangar in Antwerp:

Hope to see a lot of you there! If you are not sure if you want to go there are pictures of Crisis 2016 and Crisis2015 as a teaser for this years convention!

First test on my gaming table

Yesterday I did the first test with my Thunderhawk on my gaming table. I test fitted the main wings, which are not completed yet. Furthermore I build a flying base from extruded polystyrene. The gunship is fitted to the stand with magnets so that different stands can be used too. When the gunship is finished it will also have retractable landing gear , which at the moment isn’t fitted yet.

Progress on the Thunderhawk gunship

Over the last week and the last weekend I did a bit more on my Thunderhawk gunship for my Galactic Knights Space Marine Chapter:

Above you see some more work done to the foreword section of the main hull.

The cockpit area is done. Now follows the addition of the foreword wings:

And the detailing of the aft hull and the main engine of the main hull:

When the last details are added to the left side of the main hull the next step will be detailing the main wings with the other two engines. Then the attack wings and the rest of the armament have to be done. After that adding all the rivets and other small detail. So watch this space for more updates.
