    AMAZING, ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
    As always, you have done a PHENOMINAL JOB one this model.
    I have to agree with Zathros. when you say "this model came out better than I expected", it really boggles my mind.
    Like I have said many times in the past, you are a MASTER MODEL BUILDER, and this model (as well as the rest of your work) is testament to that.

    We could do one of those symbolic adoptions. I'll come visit, clean you out of all your models, and you will never have to see me again "as it didn't just work out"! :)

    Thanks for the compliment Rhaven. There is one additional item that I have to add to it and it will be done but I am happy as it looks now.

    The only problem is that I have a couple of grandsons who look at them with loving eyes and I can hear them in a low whisper going "VROOM, VROOM with hand motions"


    Here are some more updates on the turret. I added the side searchlight, dual antennas from straightened paperclips and front bumper mud guard. I draped a chain around it for some effect and voila. The next group of photos are going to be the finished ones. The next one will probably the Lemnan Russ Punisher, and that is because it has a top mounted auto cannon that I need for the Baneblade sometime in the future.The smoke or flare dispenser where supposed to be on the top deck of the track skirts but I decided to make my own and place then on the side of the turret. See you soon with the final photos.:thumb:

    Here are the final photos of the Baneblade. I am pleased as to how it came out. It is based on the Warhammer GW version but with slight differences. I hope that you have all enjoyed the build as much as I did in the construction. With all the lamination, it is sturdy enough to withstand table top gaming and it almost weight the same as the plastic version. In the final photos, I did not show the opened engine compartment and the crew hatches are closed. Eli Patoroch, the designer, did a fantastic job in the design, I just worked it my way but it is still true to his design. Enjoy and hope to see you all soon with my next project.:thumb:

    Brute force, fantastic work, useful wips. Simply great sir! :inw:
    Btw, is the turret interchangeable with Leman Russ? I'm thinking of making the vulcan turet for my Mach just for fun, it's so difficult to choose only one version.. :mrgreen:

    No, the Baneblade is muh larger/bigger than the Leman Russ but an option is to use the turrets from the Conqueror or the Punisher. You have the choice of two turrets.

    Thanks for your comment and for looking in.



    Thanks to all of you for looking in. I will start to post the next model as soon as I am over half way done. The hardest and most tedious part are the track links and those are finished. See you all soon with another project.:thumb:

    Do not worry about that, Lowes and Home Depot have a sale on knee pads. There are still a few more to go before I break of into another modeling genre.:thumb:
