Challenger II Project 13th August

Permanent Linkby Cain Tiberius on Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:51 am

MOOOOOOAAAAARR pics...

First off, 2 I already posted. Like I said before the main chasis went together easily. But the the Turret was a biotch, talk about misfitting.
Anywho, I added the main Battle cannon from the Baneblade and external fuel tanks and exhausts to the rear of the main hull.

For it to meet the minimum armaments of the Baneblade, I had to fit a hull mounted Twin Heavy Bolter. I had thought about putting it in the Driver dugout. But it would have looked odd in the middle right under the main cannon, and really there was insufficient space. So i decided to cut out the front section altogether and fabricate something suitable out of plasticard.

Then I started planning out some of the detail on the turret, like the two coplars(?) and some of the crew. Here's a pic, but all the detail is just held on with blue tak.

The cannon I magnetised so I can switch weapon. No idea what the smaller turret is, but it looks cool.

Comments and Crits welcome as always.

Looks cool so far. Nice conversion work with the plasticard on the front!
