Actually it is not finished, as the magnetized parts may get some transfers and freehand, and still need to be weathered.
The model is fully magnetized, all the doors/accessories/weapons can be removed. I'm a big fan of magnetization, both for versatility and portability.
The base is made of a standard AOBR base and a piece of carbon fibre rod, as I dislike GW flying bases.
The junk on the ground are made of plasticard (heated up and bent over fire) pieces of tin sheet and resin parts.
The scratches on the bumper and the hull are the weakest part of the paintjob, hell, next time they will turn pout better. The speeder was given a little coat of dust pigment (dust, dusty green and sand) as I felt that as a flying machine stronger weathering would be out of place.
As always, feedback is welcome.

Thanks!
The Sentinels are indeed my own chapter genepool largely Imperial Fists I think (at least at the moment)
A little more on them

And this is how the insignia was being made (laser engraving and resin casting):

Man, your stuff looks really great! And your symbols are really well made. Do you know of anywhere that will do the laser cutting for you online? Or do you get it done locally? I live in a smaller city, and I'm not sure anyone around here would offer this kind of service.

I really don't know, but it seems likely. Most rubber stamp making companies use laser engraving, and many of them are online (at least in Hungary). If there is a place in your town where you can order rubber stamps, they may be able to help you.
or companies like this: http://www.rubberstamps.net/

Thanks for the advice, come to think of it I know there are some companies around here that make stamps and office supplies. I will check them out and look at that website.

Impressive model. I agree with the limited weathering on a speeder. The engines are the best i have ever seen on a speeder. Very nice indeed.
