    Thanks Guys for photos and the build. I know that some of my builds are a bit hard to do but you all did great. Got to hide those wires, possibly through a thin coffee stirrer straw, or a hollow ears swab stick. Thanks again and see you all around the forums.

    Nah, I don't want to hide the wires, they are less obtrusive than a stick.

    I would recommend better photos (or trace the photos to make line drawings) of your builds. It was quite confusing at points of construction on the jet bike. I did like the final result, though and want to do a few more.

    the wing seems to touch the base, maybe you can place the wires inside the wing and hide them that way. Model looks great!
    can you place something next to it for scale?

    The wing does indeed touch the base as my original idea was a space marine doing a 180 on it. The fig is 28 mm - the same size as a 40 plastic space marine. I'll try to post something a bit later as i'm not at my computer at the moment ( I love this Ipad). Check out this pic for scale of the fig:

    Wow. That's a good idea. Although I doubt my models would get anywhere near that. Nice work, and it's great to see someone appreciates it.

    Armorman, you and SO are truly inspiring with these 40k builds. I can't wait to be done with my Masters so I can have some time to devote to not just ogling others models and building my own. Beautiful work!
