Two things.

1. If that's FW's kit.. let the Emperor strike me down for my jealously. If it's not, you're still doing better than I am.

2. Since you are doing LED lights, why not take a crack at running lights on the fuselage and wings?

Oh!

Bjorn, I would like to make a special request.


Can you actually get a Rhino inside the assault bay or no? I remember seeing a T-hawk with a Razorback inside it..

How did you put the LEDS in (i am not the most tech savvy person!)? I can't even see where you put the power source for them? Dang your good!

i ran the wires through to the back of the thunderhawk, where i drilled a whole leading to the tail mount. then i attached a magnet to the inside to hold the back compartment on.

My brother has started uping his army by introducing squadrons of vulchures etc. to his army so I think its only right I buy one of these. Depending on how it comes out for you totally depends on if I throw all that money at FW lol. Don;t know if I want you to do it well or not now lmao.

thanks for the support guys, this is kind of a daunting task.

lonesniper, i tested it out, and the new rhino does not fit in the thunderhawk, perhaps the old school one would. : (

Aw.. that's lame. How awesome it would look to land a T-hawk on the board and move a Rhino out of the assault bay.

... then again, maybe I am just easily amused..

Love the Red Light on the interior! Very, VERY accurate (red light doesn't affect night vision...not that the son's of russ should worry, but we may have one of our loyal retainers on board :)).

Lone Sniper - Running lights would be cool, but when you actually go into an operation, all lights should be off anyway (black out conditions).

Friggin Sweet though...I'm so jealous, ha ha.

Um...but I didn't see where the Keg Frigdge was on the inside...don't tell me the Keg Fridge is missing...I'm sure it's cunningly hidden, right? <_<
For the Wolftime, praise Russ!

In Russ we trust, all others kiss my axe.

Bjorn, now you've hooked me.


How much did the LED system cost, and how difficult was it to run together? I would like to do the same thing on a Land Raider or Baneblade, and I have basic knowledge of electric circuits and things like that (thanks to middle school education). I feel that I am a more proficient modeller now than I was a while ago, and I think I could tackle such a project.

I´m just experimenting with LED too. I want some for my Daemon Prince and for a Pred. It´s not very expensive, it cost only some Cents/penny. Depending on the LEDs and the battery you may need some resitors. That´s the part were a friend came into play. I can repair an aircraft, but i´m definitely not a genie in working with electricity. He´s choosing the resistor we will need.

Bjoern, when you get that all squared, will you let me know how it goes and what sort of setup you used? I would appreciate it..

Simply excellent, I love the LED.

If you would put running lights on there, you would just need a couple small capacitors to make them blink... I think.

Nah, you'd need some (small, about the size of an old tape cassette box) IC control circuit, not capacitors (since you're not actually strobing the lights, just flashing them). Or just buy flashing LEDs.

For what it's worth, the old metal THawk is even smaller proportionally than the new one is. I've seen a metal THawk, and the entire fuselage is as wide as an old Rhino. Don't get me started on the horrible fit problems, either.

Bjorn, you're a very brave man to be brush-painting that beast! I would have bought an airbrush and figured out how to use it before I got the THawk.
