I'm actually stripping some old rhinos at the moment. under a layer of space wolf grey it turns out they are imperial fist yellow complete with transfers! Its going to take several sessions to clean one up I think. On the otherhand, the techmarine is stripped, cleaned, undercoated ready for painting.

WOW! That's that POS skyray with the crappy paint all over it?

Great work mate, really looking nice, both of them

Obviously the enemy took a few shots at the tau in the background, the shots were too high, and took out all those paint pots instead! ;)

It's not that exciting. Just the end of a mini camera tripod. Lol.

Techmarine.
Picture shows before and after. Before is what I think was a hand painted black undercoat, quite thick, and the model hadn't had the mold lines cleaned.

Thank you. I'm currently working on a Bjorn the fell handed from the same source. Its had a couple of layers of paint, fallen apart, been stuck back together with wrong parts and a ton of glue, painted again, then fallen back to bits. I've so far stripped the paint, used an evil stripper chemical to dissolve the detail swamping super glue, got the original replaced parts (mid section and grenade launcher) from the previous owner after they were found in the bottom of his box, stripped them and finally cleaned the mold lines off. I'm now at the re assembling stage. I've also had to source two plastic wolf tail tassles, as the original metal ones on the front carapace have long since snapped off and been lost (before the second paint job / reassembly I'd wager). But we are now good to go.

Further project work was a location photoshoot with two models. I've sorted the images I want, and have begun processing them. I'll pop a couple of selected images and a link to the rest when they are done.

Fantastic!
