    So here is my second Warhammer 40-K model. The Leman Russ Dominator (Warhammer 40K).

    Here are the parts sheets.

    I decided to add extra detail as I go along through the build (starting with louvering the vents in the main body).

    I decided to detail out the gun by making the barrel look like a real barrel and raise the printed parts on the side.

    Both guns and the front hatch are attached.

    Here is an update on my progress.
    I added a little extra detail to the piece in the first frame. All I did was raise the vertical parts that go around the stack.

    I added extra detail to these parts as well. I raised the bands around the cylinder, I raised the edging around the ends of the cylinder (Just to give the parts a bit more detail), and raised the framework of the braces (That way the braces will have a bit more to hold onto the body with).

    I decided to louver out this part to make it look a bit more realistic.

    The only extra detail that I added to these, was to layer the exhaust stacks so that they would look more realistic and the texture would be on both the inside and outside.

    There was not anything more that I could do with this part. SO it is "as-is".

    Looking great. These models are fabulous by their designers, but when you take the time and effort to add the layering and detsils, they really come alive. Can't wait to see you finish.

    It is a fun and enjoyable build. There is so much that can be done with these models.

    Thank you. There is quite a bit of detail that I missed (but I will add it to the next build). There is still a ton of work to be done on it though.

    I like detailed models. :):hammerhead: :headbange:
    Granted, I may not be as good as some of the other builders that we have here. thumbsupHowever, I do the best that I can (and am always looking for ways to improve my skills).:yesyes::yesyes::yesyes:

    Sorry for for the long time between updates. I have been dealing with a few problems in my life (more like health).
    I messed up my back at work and now facing surgery on my knee (I have a torn meniscus).

    So enough about me. On with my update.
    As you can see, I raised the printed details to the track assembly.
    DSCN0280.jpg DSCN0281.jpg DSCN0282.jpg

    I decided to double up on the tread pad parts to give them a more realistic look.
    DSCN0283.jpg DSCN0284.jpg

    I started to apply the treads. This is a very tedious process.

    I am putting this project on hold for a little while, as I have another project that I have to do and have it done before the middle of July. Yes, I will post the other project!

    So until next time, ENJOY!!!
