Is that how it's laid out? I saw it as:
Clockwise From top left is IG, then Chaos, below that is Marines, left of that is Eldar, and bottom left is Tau? Looking closer though I now see the "Logic" I employed was not used by GW. It looked like everyhting was sort of grouped together in sections on the sprue by army. Looks like I was wrong. Thanks for pointing that out.

Now for the newer slimmer profile air intakes. One will sit over each engine. I used two toothbrush cases that looked like this.


Then I cut them in half along the side like so.


It now looks like this (and it magically changed color).


I used a small bit of electrical wire sheathing (bought from any auto parts store) to form the "grill". The base is just for size comparison of what diameter sheathing I used.


Installed on the new intake it looks like this...


Then I shaved the top of the engine housing flat. I removed the small "squares" and the rivets from the top.


Then I glued the new intake to the top of the engine housing.

Well I had a set back. I test fitted the painted wings last night and the whole Stormraven kept toppling backwards. The magnetized stand is not strong enough to resist the force of the fulcrum created when I put the wings on. So I'll be adding a large central "pin". I have a large nail that I will cut. I'll glue the head of the cut nail to the bottom of the ship and drill a hole in the center of the flying stand. The nail will slip into the base like a large pin keeping the fulcrum in check...I hope.

Looking good so far. Any plans on expending the tail out some?

Nope. I wanted to subtly modify the tank to look better. I also have a case set up for it with its current dimesions.

WooHoo! The pin idea worked. Now all I have to do is finish painting the model and get the LED in place. I plan on placing the entire LED assembly on the bottom of the turret like so:

I'll use velcro to attach the battery and just remove it when not in use.
