BA Blog 4th April 13: Bikes

Permanent Linkby Cain Tiberius on Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:39 am

Howdy folks.

So painting has been slow since I finished the Hawk. I really don't like painting large models :/
But I have now finished a Raven Wing style squad. Yeah I know that's DA, but I think the unit composition fits well in any SM force. As my 2nd Co. is complete, these are from the 8th Co. (assault Co.) which is represented by a double green tear drop on the right shoulder. On models from this Co. I'm deciding to for go the embossed shoulder pads and just free handing the symbols. All the bases are made by me as usual.


The 2 bikes on the left side are from the Dark Vengence set. The 2nd bike to the right side is an eBay rescue. And the other 3 bikes, the attack bike and the speeder are all from my 10 year old force, with the same update techniques I've mentioned before.

Models of note are the attack bike and speeder....

Hi folks. Been moving my models round the house a bit today. One, to protect them from the kids as they grow. And two, to make room for more important things where I had them. But I did take the opitunity to take some pics of the force in its entirety as it currently stands. It is still growing though, so don't be fooled into thinking I've stopped ;)

Rocks and ruined temple Bases.

Ok so I better get round to posting this.


Start of by cutting shapes out of various sizes of balsa wood. And stack them up gluing them into your desired size/shape.


Then cover the whole thing with Quick Drying Polyfilla. I thought this was a good idea :-

Thunderhawk progress 2nd January 2013

Permanent Linkby Cain Tiberius on Wed Jan 02, 2013 9:27 pm

Just a small update.

I built the fuselage back end so the main body is the correct size/shape now. I also made the engine struts that connect between the body and the engines. The pins are while the glue sets.


Please remember gaps etc will either be covered with detail, or filled in later on. I also mocked up an engine nacelle just to gauge size etc. It's not glued together or to the body, and more detail will be added later.
As I said on the 2012 4th 1/4 thread, they will/are made from 32mm waste pipe that can be obtained from any hard ware store relatively cheap. The ends of the engine are made from 22 mm pipe joiner that I was able to take appart as you will in the pic below. I...

Project Thunderhawk 29th December 2012

Permanent Linkby Cain Tiberius on Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:38 pm

Hi folks. I know I said I wouldn't be adding any more till the new year, yet here I am once again..

I've started a scratch built Thunderhawk. Something I've been planning for some time.. well its finally begun. Please bare in mind this is just the beginning. Rough edges will be fixed in due process, aswell as building up layers of detail.


Ok so this will be predominantly made of card, with polystyrene core. There will be a few plastic pieces like the engines and weapons. I am getting measurements from Eli Patoroch's PDF plans and various other pictures. The main difference though is I'm not doing any interior detail. Instead making it a solid polystyrene and...
