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 . 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.
