I just read this whole thread through. *phuu* Now I have a question that arose at post#1. What is the superstructure made from? Foamboard?

Luckily, the foes I must beat before the dog to get anywhere near your skill level are my impatience and my ineptitude.

Well people who have been following my threads for years know but to newcomers and new forums that I am posting on will be surprised to learn that the black plastic comes from IBM printer cartridges. My former company threw them out by the hundreds each year.

I've got enough to last me a few decades............



They're thick plastic over 2,00 MM so you need a saw to cut them, a hacksaw will do and the plastic is compatible with with standard styrene plastic cement.

And they're free........

Plus you're recycling.

haha! Totaly missed that! Do you believe that Foamboard would make a sturdy enough superstructure for this kind of job?

My Warhound titan hull and head was/is made of foam board as is the hull of my Thunderhawk but it posed more problems than it circumvented so I do not recommend the use of it unless you are constructing a paper model.

Stormhammer Update:

Slow going with the thousands of rivets required to make this model come alive; I'm about halfway there.

Thanks,

View Ports:

One thing I've been dreading making is the view ports. These delicate items are frequently damaged on Baneblade resin models and I have heretofore been less than successful in duplicating them in styrene but I have stumbled onto a seemingly viable method which if successful I'll give a breakdown in the procedure.

The port on the center right is just about finished and only needs be filed to the proper angle for mounting on the casement.

The two mounted on the strip are extras in case of failure............

Here is an extraction from a private chat I had with @Blackadder . He thought it beneficial to the masses that it be posted here aswell.

M -What problems arose using foamboard? What thickness did you use? Would it be solved with thicker sheets? What I'm planing is a larger Ork vehicle and my plan is to build the superstructure with foamboard and then cover it with thin sheets of plasticard. What problems would I encounter?

B -I used 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick foam filled posterboard and I foresee no problems with using that material for a fortress structure. My problem was adhering large expanses of thin plasticard to the poster paper and finally solved it with 5-7 minute epoxy which was messy and sometimes not successful plus as my skills improved I regretted I could not install an interior in my T'hawk and Warhound. For a few bucks more I could have build all out of industrial quality sheet styrene which is actually cheaper than posterboard and styrene glue compatible.

At the pointy end of the project ey Blackadder? At least your victory martini will be thoroughly well earned!
