|Bandaged in sticky tape while the plumbers glue cures.|
|I really need to source some different sized plastic G-clamps|
one of these days, they would make this sort of job a lot easier.
|Captains conning tower hotglued in place, offending "R" sanded |
off all three sections & the roof left off the rear, so that I can
fiddle around in there without ripping my fingers to shreds.
|This is the front "mouth" of the tank. These cavities in the |
lower section (that I've placed cables in) were originally
filled by motorised wheels.
|Rear cargo bay, detailed with Araldite tubes, cardboard, |
plastic stirrers, corrugated card, wires, pipes, plastic
checker plate etc
|The right side of the cargo bay. I went all out and put a control |
panel up front too!
|Here's a shot showing the cabling work I carried out. Not sure |
why I bothered actually, as your not even going to be able to see it
once the beast is done. I just couldn't help myself, once the conversion
bug hits its a bit hard to stop :)
|And here's one of the little blighters that I'll be using for the |
jet engines. This idea is not mine, it's from one of the first
kitbashed models in history.... more on that later.
So, there you go, progress dear chums. It does happen on occasion :)
