Howdy and greetings from Canada, fellow model and hobby enthusiasts! Total picture count: 100

It's been a long, long time since I posted in this Forum. It is mostly due to PhotoBucket stealing my photos, and then the laptop I was using crashed when I spilled bong water on the keyboard

Without further ado, this Thread is about the modelling of my first Warhammer 40,000 Flyer; an Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum Vendetta Gunship.

The following four ( 4 ) black & white photos are courtesy of Forge World : https://www.forgeworld.co.uk








Normally the Valkyrie is available as a plastic model kit from Games Workshop, while the Vendetta Gunship Conversion Kit is resin bits from Forge World;

since this was purchased second-hand I had no option to apply magnets so as to remove the Conversion Kit

Here are two photos of the Vendetta Gunship courtesy of the Seller. As you can clearly see there are broken parts such as the Tail fins / control surfaces, and Loading Ramp;

in addition, there are parts clearly missing such as both of the Pilot's heads, complete Cockpit Canopy and Glass, Nose Top Armour Panel, and Rear Landing Gear.









First order of business was to repair the broken tail fins, which was completed in short order with Testor's Plastic Model Cement 3501 in the orange 18ml tube with white cap.

My local hobby store carried the Testors 3509WM Value Pack, which has two ( 2 ) 7/8 fl. oz. Tubes of Cement and four ( 4 ) Gluing Tips:





Second was to give the entire model a good wash and scrub in the stainless steel kitchen sink;
using an old toothbrush and dish soap I removed all traces of dirt, dust and any debris accumulated from time or lack of use.


The original owner had decided to hand-prime by brush painting the plastic model with a thin coat of light purple, and left patches of bare plastic showing;
the wash & scrub removed any loose bits of paint but ultimately the next step was to spray prime the entire model, so after cleaning I left it to dry overnight.


Thus it was ready for step three: two thin coats of flat black spray primer, courtesy of Krylon.









The entire Vendetta was painted using a scheme of greens:


Base coat : Dark Angels / Caliban Green

Layer : Snot Green

Highlights : Foundation Knarloc Green



All areas that were not Green were re-painted with Undercoat Black, and metal areas were painted with Chainmail.


Then the entire model was then given a Wash: Nuln Oil mixed with Vallejo Black Glaze and Drying Retarder

Thank you for the kind words, and good to see you again CB !!!

I ended up going to eBay for the 40k Valkyrie Bits, and to my surprise not only were there Sellers not only in United States with every single bit such as the Armor Plate & Landing Gear, but two Sellers for Canopy Glass; Canada (Dave Tista of Tista's Minis) and Australia for the other.

The other option was buying a sheet of clear plastic and polystyrene strips to build a custom canopy, which I did purchase but have not got around to using yet.

However, in the process of finding 40k Valyrie Bits, I ended up purchasing not one but two Vulture Gunship kits! Going to have a separate Blog for that

Although i enjoy photography, it was obvious that the photos i was taking were of poor quality due to the lack of proper lighting.

After doing some Google research and reading articles here on www.dakkadakka.com, i cut up a cardboard box and build my own home-made lightbox:




This allowed for more photos with more even lighting, however still of dubious quality unfortunately...

Here the Rear Loading Ramp has been placed in friction-fit for the photograph:

Thank you so much for the kind words; even having the creativity and materials it truly is a challenge doing a complete refurbish!

I acquired a couple of used Leman Russ and using various bits including older Rogue Trader metal i started my Imperial Guard Tank Company; before and after:

Here is a photo of the Cargo Hold Interior; as i purchased the Vendetta Gunship already glued together it was more challenging getting to some of the small details deep inside!

As the entire model had been previously spray primed Krylon Flat Black, it was given a dry brush of Chainmail

Then a wash of watered down Nuln Oil mixed with Vallejo Model Color Black Glaze

Blue details were painted a base coat of Regal Blue, then layer with Macragge Blue

Red details were painted a base coat of Foundation Mechrite Red, then layer with Mephiston Red

Yellow details were painted a base coat of Skull White, then layer with Bad Moon Yellow





The underside of the Vendetta Gunship was painted Mechanicus Standard Grey, followed by highlights in Space Wolf Grey



The missing Landing Gear came in from eBay and was painted to match

At this point the 40k Valkyrie Bits from eBay had come in, so i spray primed and glued on the nose top armour piece.

Aircraft Jet Engine Spinner warning markings were painted using Skull White on Chaos Black; i chose G-Swirl







The Nose Top Armour Plate was finished off, and the Pilot's helmet was then painted Mithril Silver and given a wash Sky Blue Ink.









Top view of the Vendetta Gunship, a couple of 40k Valkyrie Rocket Pods bits came in so they were assembled and prepped for spray priming;

Port and Starboard Identification Lights were painted on the front wing spars but the rear Identification Light still has to be painted.

Cockpit was painted with a Base of Regal Blue, Layer of Macragge Blue, then highlighted with Ice Blue.

Otherwise, the entire model is ready for applying Decals

Time to apply some decals! I highly recommend Vallejo water based Decal Fix, in the easy-to-use dropper bottle:



First step is to paint clear gloss varnish under the areas where decals are to be applied; allow to dry.

In the meantime, plan out and cut out your decals.

Have a saucer of clean water, decals cut out to size, Decal Fix, and a couple of brushes to work with.

Thanks for checking in again and the kind words sir!

I was scouting out the bits on eBay before i acquired the Vendetta Gunship, especially since both the Pilot's heads and entire Canopy was missing.

However this gave me the opportunity to construct and paint the Canopy instead of having one that was already glued on and painted over

Being a fan of military insignia and movies, I had a blast deciding on the Pilot Helmet paint schemes especially since there are two helmets!

The metallic blue base colour of the first helmet is a clue to the paint theme ... can you guess the scheme? Here's a spoiler...

I always wanted one since they were released by Forge World, but the weight and cost deterred me.

Ever since the plastic kit was released i had only been intrigued, but the addition of new Flyer rules in the more recent Editions made the Vendetta Gunship very lethal in game play.

Once i started with one Flyer, i now have an Air Force of a total of four; this Vendetta Gunship, a Valkyrie, and two Vulture gunships soon to come in P&M Blogs!

The Imperial Guard Vehicle Decal Sheet provided the Caution Stripes on the Loading Ramp:







Originally a special insignia for the Vendetta Gunship was applied on the Cowlings on either side of the Canopy from the Baneblade Transfer Sheet;
however this was hard to see so i repainted the Cowling from green to blue with a base coat of Regal Blue, then layer with Macragge Blue

Before with green Cowlings; note the tail fins / control surfaces have Vendetta Gunship markings as well:







The sides of the Cockpit received an armoured fist clenching a thunderbolt courtesy of the Baneblade Transfer Sheet:



Matching decal for the Nose Top Armour, an armoured fist clenching a thunderbolt courtesy of Imperial Guard Griffon Heavy Mortar Transfer Sheet;
also, yellow triangle Cockpit Emergency Escape markings for multiple flyers were provided from this transfer sheet as well!



After with blue Cowlings; also, Warning markings on the Engines provided from the Baneblade Transfer Sheet as these were the perfect length and size for several flyers!

The Cockpit and Pilots were assembled separately from the Flyer by cutting the pegs on the sides of the Cockpit;

this is required to properly seat the Cockpit in the Vulture Gunship, but allows me to customize the Pilots to their Flyers

Initially the Vendetta Gunship is being crewed by "Iceman" and "Slider", Valkyrie crewed by "Hollywood" and "Wolfman"

Still a long ways to go, but I did come across the Datasheet for the Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum Storm Trooper Strike Force which was released by Games Workshop :

I adore that you have so much stuff that you need a box that size specifically for Catachan Heavy Weapon Teams.

Never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

Hello again Excommunicatus! I drink a lot of V8 vegetable cocktail purchased in cardboard flats of 24 cans and as such I keep the trays afterwards.

Here are the contents of the Catachan Heavy Weapon Teams; it is the 60mm Round Bases that takes up all the room :





For example, here are the Steel Legion Heavy Weapon Teams when it was a Work-In-Progress, also using a cardboard tray as a storage solution :





This photo is a top-down view of the Steel Legion Heavy Weapons Teams now, with the addition of two ( 2 ) Rapier Laser Destroyers :

As the Vendetta had fixed, glued-on wings I purchased one KR Multicase cardboard case and custom-cut foam for an Imperial Guard Flyer with Fixed Wings : https://www.krmulticase.com/product/trays/IG10

IG10

Description:
1 Valkyrie or Vendetta or Vulture, Flight stand, 4 Chimera/Leman Russ and 20 troops (20 troops fit in insert tray which sits above the Valkyrie)

In my quest for after-market miniatures and scenery, i came across a company based in Poland called Kromlech or Bits Of War.

Here is a link to their website : http://www.kromlech.eu/


They produce a cast resin 120mm Flyer Base with their "Junk City" theme, chock full of juicy detail :





I purchased a can of Citadel Chaos Black spray primer, then waited until a day with favourable weater conditions ...





Work-In-Progress so far :

It's a great base, but does it not seem a bit overly 'busy' to you?

Perhaps this is nothing more than a reflection on my own plans (and personality) but it would drive me mad to have several bases with (what looks like) Earthshaker Cannon bits and heavy industrial debris, unless the rest of my board looked like that too.
