Huzzah, bits arrived today from Blood and Skulls Industry (eBay/Facebook), must say very happy with the quality of the bits and the service, I would advise any tread heads to check them out! I ordered some engine parts for my Shadowsword as I thought exhausts on the G.W model were too puny looking and wanted something that looked beefier and more like the Arkurion version by F.W which has a more impressive engine, and because I ordered more than 4, -I ordered 6- I got the engine mounting plate thrown in, very nice! Pics of the minor conversions on the Shadowsword soon! Here is the mounting plate and 2 of the exhaust stacks.

A few pics of the progress on the shadowsword,
1) back plate and engine cover and commanders cupola removed

2) new engine cover made of plasticard and 2 rhino doors to look like more realistic enging deck with vents

3)engine deck looking better with paint

4)close up of the newly raised commanders cupola, thought this would make it look more realistic

5)profile of tank showing raised cupola and cannon barrel with fume extractor filed away, to excensuate the barrel and make it look more like the forgeworld version

Small but significant changes. Looking good. Like the engine decking. It does look more realistic.

You asked for a critique so here it is.

Mind you this is just my initial impression........ looking at it cold with non pre-judicial eye.

The turret looks fine but I would have gone for a hexagonal shape to match the facets of the hull. Then a few thin plates to add definition to the cupola and more than a few rivets to mimic the superstructure.

Don't sell yourself short on ability you seem to have ample. The secret of the FW models is the ''over the top'' detail.

@Blackadder thank you! I had thought of building up the turret hatch the same shape as the plate it sits on, and may revisit this, also your scratch build storm hammer has me thinking of extending the engine block a little.
@Tawa ride of the valkyries is a great idea, a lot better than chitty chitty bang bang, my original choice
