3 Aircraft finished! You can see the results in the showcase thread here.

 

At this point I would love to have a break, but I have a deadline! This Marauder has been in this state for a while, construction finished to concentrate on painting the fighters. 2 Marauder destroyers, 2 more Thunderbolts and 3 ground defences and assets also have to be done!

I really love the imperial models, not so much the orks (not on you just on orks in general - not my thing) But damn do I love the imperial models.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Well I've been plane lazy over Christmas and then I got sick... So the planes have been sitting in the hangar.

 

1 Month remains. 3 bombers, 3 fighters, 3 ground defences to build and paint or crash and burn in shame. Warhammer World or bust, for the Emperor!

tongue.png  it's plane to see ...you need to kick yourself in the pants(luckily that's where your emergency chute is good man laugh.png ) 

 

9 models in a month ... the GW Army painters have to do 2x marines a day (finished)  get your mind in the zone bud... just think 9 models only and do all of them to base standard and go from there....

 

i think you should build em all in one go then undercoat em all together...

Yeah that's a good shout @mithrilforge, the current plan is build for the next week and a bit, and then paint for the remaining two weeks, with a final lead up week taken as time off as a last ditch to get ready.

 

If only I could build and paint full time! Well, something's gotta pay for the toys :D. I'm hoping for at least an hour an evening on weekdays.

 

A sign of things to come!

The ejection ports right in front of the engine intakes always bugged me so they are being deleted on this pattern of Destroyer, it also helps place the shark mouths decals.

 

Progress so far:

Marauder Bomber: 99% built, turrets and bombs not yet attached. This is a cheat as I built this before the painted fighters but put it aside to get the fighters done.

2x Marauder destroyers: Wing sub assemblies complete and main fuselages coming along. Now working on the nose, a little extra work added by filing off and filling the ejector ports.

 

2x Thunderbolts: Not started

 

1x Thunderbolt Fury: Already painted as a test model, needs stripping and repainting.

Ground defences and objectives: Some pre blu tacked but not started.

Progress so far:

Marauder Destroyers: 1 Built sans weapons, 1 in sub assemblies almost finished.

It seems to be a cliché of building a destroyer that you remark how much bigger it seems than a Marauder, but it's true!

2x Thunderbolts: Initial assembly started

Ground defences and objectives: Not started.

Back to the daily grindstone tomorrow. Not sure if it's going to be worth it after 3 more weeks of this, but we'll see biggrin.png

Definitely not cutting corners on mould lines etc. Otherwise I probably could have had them all knocked out by now.

Looking at them together really makes me consider combining the two kits to get "True Scale" Marauders.

That too-short fuselage and tiny T-tail are like constantly having a pebble in my boot...
