Heres the remaining pics so you guys are up to speed with where i am:

This is the reactor room. Will have more pipes and detail.




The painted cockpit sans pilots.


Dont worry once the flat sides go on the chassis will be straighter. And there is still more detail to be added before I add the lights.


The rear undercarrige made from actual tamiya RC shocks but i need to add stabilsing bars to the rear of each of them as theres currently to much movement from them.


Note the rear landing gear is attached but I still need to bulk out the upper supports for them


This is as far as ive got so far


Pics now will become a lot rarer as I complete different parts. Hopefully this project may inspire a few more marine commanders to build their own ships.

That's amazing so far this is probably the most thorough (i think that's the word) thunderhawk I've so far, but are you going to have space marine pilots or guardsmen pilots?

Anyway amazing job so far

I'm using guard pilots cause they look cool but there actually space marines without armour on. There's a pic of the flight crew in the second set of pics on the 1st page of this thread.

Thanks guys

That is awsome. I've bee thinking about doing some scratch builds myself. Think I'll start off with a Hell Blade or Hell Talon. You know where to get any good templates?
