With FW releasing the LR spartan in the near future I thought it would be a fun project to dredge through the bitz box to build something similar out of old plastics.
The main components will be:
- Tracks: 2 old RT style Land raiders to mimic the newfangled stretched look
- Plasticcard and old metal vindicator bits for central hull and roof.
- Vanilla LR sponsons modified to fit larger laser destroyer arrays (with magnets to let me mimic any variants)
- Storm raven nose guns
- A liberal sprinkling of templariffic iconography.
The build should take no more than two
Lets begin with the initial track mockup shall we?
After a rough amputation. Shown along side a vanilla LR hull to show the approximate scale. Added to this will be the "snout" ofc.:
My goal for tonight is to get each of the track sections joined seamlessly so I can start making the central hull in the next couple of days.
Edit: hopelessly optimistic timetable adjusted
