Here is the finished model, I am extremely happy with this flyer and it is my favorite model in my army thus far and I am very proud of how this one came out!!
However, despite fooling with it I cannot get any pics to truly show the colors of the model in a life like way and because of this these pics are not doing the doing justice as compared to real life especially with the fading from blue to turquoise. The best pic to depict this is this first wip shot.

Oh my stars and garters, that is magnificent mate!

Clean, pretty, bright - everything on the Eldar tick list. Fantastic show piece for an army

The details on the edges of the wings are excellent. Very nice model.

Hey guys, it's been a while since I last updated this log, I have been crazy busy!
Anyway here are some WIP pics of these sweet ass Jet Bikes I have in the works!
I got these from a dude in Russia I found on the net. The quality and detail on these bike is awesome, I am very happy with them. I did a bit of converting however, I only used the lower torso and arms of the new jet bikes and used the upper half of some guardians for the riders as they look much better this way. I saw someone online do this and I copies them! I also converted up a female Autarch by using some guardian bits, singing spear bits and green stuff, overall I think it will look good when painted, I also added some banners to her bike as well!

Very smooth and bright color on the flyer. Looks good on pic. That shall be a nice piece around which you can build your army. It is also nice to see some effort on the base.

Back again with another update, next up Is this phonix lord, going to prime him black then air brush up the armour with two shades of green then a final small edge hilight with a brush before a green wash. I might make him a bit brighter then the SS just so he stands out a little.
