Here is the latest addition to the 5th Gruppe 2nd Gefechtskompanie of the Galactic Knights Space Marine Chapter. Komtur ( sergeant) Robert:
Sorry for the pour picture quality somehow the camera freaked out on me 😦
Here is a short video of the figure :
Here the quality is much better so take a look if you like
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have done a dedicated page for my DIY Space Marine Chapter here on my Blog. You will find information about the creation, homeworld, combat doctrine, organization, look, beliefs and geneseed here. I will add more information and short stories about my chapter as time permits.
