I love that pitting in the hull- that should come up nicely when you get to painting.

Thanks guys!

Hopefully. Thats the plan. I'm trying to make some of the dents look like laser/cannon damage too. Damage done in a kinda teardrop shape.





I think I'm done with this engine pod. I've got a bag of MDF off cuts from stuff I done a while ago. Thats going to be my scattered wreckage.

Lovely work mate... guessing you are going to light the interior of the wrecked engine mounting?

Yes; the damage looks really good, and the engine pod is awesome 8)

Is that a bit of landing gear on the third template, or is it something else?

...I've got a bag of MDF off cuts from stuff I done a while ago. Thats going to be my scattered wreckage.

Is that a Tintin rocket in there though? :D

Na. I'll be taking pictures in daylight, and when you do that, the tealight effects are invisible.

The Tin Tin rocket was MDF bits for my wee boys toy box. They ended up being too small and we went with big sharks instead! ;)

That is landing gear. I needed to use the wee circle off-cuts from the spaceship frame for something. They look a tad small but it'll do.

Looking good :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

I figure dead bodies a bit too gruesome. ;) Kyle will probably end up playing with this after all! lol

So, I'm nearly getting to the painting stage. The 6th of June is rolling round waaay too fast!! The 3 smaller bits are ready for a splodge of paint. The main piece still needs some rocks/sand and some debris. I found myself wanting to go too far with the details. I needed to rein it in if I want to finish!! o_o o_o o_o

Awsome work; at this scale, it's quite something, and it certainly will dominate the table 8)

But as much as I love Chris Foss's work, for me, it doesn't really gel with the Battletech universe. If this is a combat dropship (and a small one at that ;) ), I'd rather opt for someting camouflaged. Probably a scheme appropriate for the theatre it's going to drop into.

Much like the mechs it transported really. Apart from some units that took pride in their colours (and that includes all of the clans, obviously ;) ), most Inner Sphere units were much too sensible to stick out, and would adopt localized camouflage schemes for their deployments.

So; go with something to match your table, I'd say... :)

Amazing build all round.

Not seen that one before.  May have to do another ship.

Thanks again guys!

So these will probably be the last pictures I can show before next Sunday. The smaller pieces are all painted and ready, but I'm going to struggle getting this beast painted up in time! Its 26 inches long (about 65cm)!!
