My New Photo Studio:

Is too small for the Thunderhawk! I converted my closet in the den to a paint booth / photo studio and the first thing I use it for is too big to fit. Gaaah!

Well it's not really a problem as I can just extend the table but I gotta start making smaller models. Not likely.

So the real reason for the post is an update on the interior cargo lighting before I disassemble the model for the rest of the lighting installation.

I sorely need more interior detail

and a vehicle

Next up Cockpit Lighting.

Thanks for the reply,

How Not To Build a Thunderhawk:

Or at least How Not To Make the Same Mistakes I Did :D

Below is my solution to mount the craft on a pedestal base using 1/2 inch rods to provide relatively innocuous levity. ;)

The problem being I have to do all this work inside out without damaging the already finished exterior. It pays to plan ahead.....

http://i.imgur.com/TMdsvZf.jpg


After drilling an oversized hole I glued in a sleeve to receive the transparent rod. As an added refinement I plan now to finish the upper gallery with Lighting and Space Marines ready to deploy; all this accomplished in the inside out manner previously mentioned. Heh, heh, heh! (He laughs maniacally.......)

The rest of the images probably need no explanation as it just duplicates forward the work described above.

However there is one more surprise in store for followers of these interminable thread addenda Heh,heh.heh!

Cure For a Rainy Day:

OMG every thing is coming up Roses. Purists may baulk at a Thunderhawk Transport carrying a Landraider but I've wanted this every since I first laid eyes on a T'hawk. The shape of the fwd cargo compartment fairly screams for that configuration. Since my T'hawk is so much larger than the basic FW version it can easily fit a Landraider in the notch space between the wings.

http://i.imgur.com/4ltc13W.jpg


Finally the center of balance for the model is right where the transparent rod pierces the Landraider forward turret so everything is falling into place with a minimum of alteration to the APC just a 1/2 inch hole aft of the bulkhead. Tada!

Martini Time Skoal!

Best Laid Plans:

Oft time Gang aft agley"......... Brought My T'hawk to a show last week and on returning home in the wee hours put it on a shelf for a couple of days.

I finally got around to getting the interior of the cargo compartment sorted out and began the retro fitting of the inner walls when I discovered one of the Ball turrets missing????? well for the past couple of days I've torn my workshop apart and traced all my steps repeatedly to no avail, it's just gone so, biting the bullet, I resigned myself to making another one using the remaining one for a guide;

What infernal luck.... and I was going to glue the turret mounts in place too just this past week.

That shot of the 'Hawk fuselage with the suspended Land Raider has got me really sold on this - the LR looks like just the right proportional size for a heavy payload item. Looks awesome

Thanks for the reply,

You Can't Go Home Again:

Well for what it's worth I've tried to duplicate my work of last year but the inspiration seems sorely lacking. Whilst this is a reasonable facsimile it cannot match the caliber of the original.

I'm about to apply the finishing detail but this is at best a tawdry effort.

I still hold out hope for finding the original.
