    Some tips would be:

    I made it by glueing the printed pages to card. this makes the missles to thick to fold well. In hindsight fold these with just paper any maybe add renforcement after if needed.

    If it is to be used as a game piece adding some kind of rail through the fuselage to give the wing greated stability, this should be quite easy with rear wings and if where it is most necessary.


    I had bit of trouble fitting the tail section. maybe could fold tabs just inside of line of the body section making it a touch thinner or remove tabs and just cut thinner 1mm should be enough.

    I have left the anntena array off. I just don't like the look of them, even on the Games Workop model. Also not happy with the turbine centres and will have to find a better way to create a rounded point bofore I put them on. Plus it looks fine without them until I learn a better technique.

    Happy to answer and questions anyone has anytime with the build.
    I got the model from ARMOURMAN's tread (Thanks!) and it have a couple of pics that were very useful.

    Thanks Zathros. I was wondering. It wasn't anything I caused was it?
