Thanks Graven'.

And now some wiring...



Not much needed to be said; wires for all the things, and some cable-tidies with rivets.
I'm out of practice with rivets, these were tricky to stick on... at least more than I remember. Might just be because they are 0.5mm.

One more look over for any more details I'd like to add (including the hat for the mechanic, I've not forgotten) and then basing construction.


The army- ~2295 points (built).

Ah DrH is still as nuts as ever.

And Theo, come on you could never use a boat like that, you would have someone's eye out with a pointy boat like that. No good for fishing. Or cage diving!

Thanks Theo'. You also wanted missiles on your boat, yes?

Thanks Cam'. I still have the spark, yes. It was just in a box for a bit.

Progress on the Raider.
Basing:

Ended up cutting pieces to affix around the "pin", rather than drilling/cutting a hole.
It's leaning slightly more than I intended, but not so far as to be a problem worth "fixing"; I'm often too subtle in my modelling, so this is definitely deliberately leaning.



Interestingly, I was worried that the base I'd cut was going to be too small to support the model, but as it turned out even the small pieces that clamp the keel were "almost" enough to stand the model up, the large base is more than enough for stability.

There's still a few more small details that I will add, and the base needs details too.

Spot what's been added since last time (above)?

It's been so long since I've even looked at a scratch build that I need to re-train my eyes. Sigh. Looks very interesting Doc. I need to drop by P&M more often.

Now, now Cam, a pointy boat like that would be perfect for catfishing... the real kind not the internet kind. Theo lives close enough to the Mississippi river to make it practical.

Of course we want missiles. Ones with laser beams for eyes because every missile should have a warm meal.

No lull in conversion madness I see. The additional cabling is excellent and really brings the model to a different level of realism to scale.

Thanks Red'. Yeah, I've still not found the time to visit anyone else's P&M. I keep saying "soon" but another day comes to a close every time.

Thanks Theo', Graven'.

Skalk! long time no see.
Thanks. That's what I'm here for.

And good timing; progress...

The base had some polyfilla (old, needed water added, scraped/cut into a paste again, and added PVA just to be sure) to create the basic shape and hide the wood join.
Then I made a tissue paper slurry with water/PVA to finish the height of the "wave".
Then covered it all in my usual mud'n'rocks mix.



The effect will be sold more when the base is painted and static grass etc. added to certain places (not in the hole).

It may be time to move this to the painting desk...

Oh yes, and hat.


Thanks Graven'. a little bit of random is what makes things interesting.

I should probably clear up the sawdust from the model before painting it...

"Inflight Missile Mechanic" was a joke I heard multiple times when I was in the service. I didn't know it was a position I could have actually applied for.

Following the twisted paths of stimuli, now all I can think of of when I see that grot w/ his hat is Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore.

edit- and thanks for Graven, add Slim Pickens to that list.

Thanks people. I aim to please. It's nice to see that you are all still interested in my (mad) creations.

I got the airbrush kit out and gave it all a spray of primer.


Going to do the black with a hairy brush as there's a lot of enclosed areas that the airbrush doesn't get into well... and I'd cleaned the airbrush before thinking about black paint and couldn't be bothered to clean it again.

No plan for what colour the outside of the Raider will be.
I think the interior will be "bone" with gold/brass metals for the Eldar metal bits.
I'll paint the pilot first though and install him once the interior is done, and then maybe decide upon the exterior.

We'll all just have to see how it turns out.

How about a starfield?
