    So here I go again with my next project, The Punisher/Conqueror variant. The model can be found on Armorman's thread, http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=170912 Scroll down and you should be able o find it. As you can make out from the schematics, there are various versions of this model. So far the work is going smooth and I finished the individual track links. The tracks were the most time consuming, so the model should go smoothly from here. See you soon with the work in progress photos.:thumb:

    And the thread begins. one track skirt and sponson is finished. The majority of the parts are cut apart and most of the tabs are removed. One of the main problem with laminating larger parts, is that they have a tendency to warp. There are a few techniques to stop or reduce the warpage. If you use books, be sure that you place other books or heavy items on top of the cover. Some warpage will actually still move with a light book on top. If you place it between the pages, place wax paper between the parts and the pages or you will damage the part with ink or damage the page with glue. Enjoy and see you all next posting.:wave:

    Thanks Rogerio for your comment. I find that if I am going to build it, I might as well make photo diary of the build. the only slow down, is that I have to edit all the photos for the comments. i used to do the commentary on the uploads not on the photos, but if you copied the photos, you would not get the comments. With the comments on the photos, it helps if you download them for your own library on how to build things.


    here are some more updates on the build and they are self explanatory with the comments box. See next posting with more.:thumb:

    More updates on the track skirt. Since I did the individual tracks, I had to come up with the template. I used the ones supplied in the plans and modified them into individual pads. The track section is also viable if used as a single strip and building up the pads that way. The color scheme for this one, is a brownish desert color. The hull sides are laminated heavy and the bottom, front and rear are laminated 1X with a channel to fit the sides into. The parts are cut apart and glued individually. I used an inside tab to connect the front and rear to the bottom of the hull. I did not post a build thread for the tracks but I will get back to that later. The bulkhead are necessary to give the hull strength. It is very sturdy and will hold up to constant use and handling. there is nothing flimsy on this model. :thumb:

    More photo updates. The Punisher is almost done, I am considering the front plow at the moment. It is finished without it but then, it looks good with it also. In this sequence, I added some details not in the schematics. The frontal compartments, I had to strengthen due to that there was not enough stress support for the front. It would have a tendency to bow inwards. The inner bulkheads avoided this problem. The same is the case for the top turret deck. I laminated the deck so that the turret would sit comfortably on it and not cave in when handled. I make my models more sturdy, so that they can withstand the constant handling for table top gaming. There is some discrepancy as to the layout of the rear of the hull in the plans, so I went with the GW reference version. Stick around for another update coming soon. Enjoy and see you all around the forum.:thumb:

    The build continues with more updates. The bottom of the hull is embellished. It is not the same as the GW version but I decided to have some access panels and escape hatch. The long channel guides will serve as the attachment points for the plow. The last photo is where I am at the moment and contemplating the front plow. Enjoy and see you all next posting.:thumb:

    It looks mean but not as much as the Baneblade. Thanks for looking in and for your support.

    The Punisher is finished, now the only thing left, is to post the photos. Enjoy and see you all soon with more.:thumb:

    The object of this thread is done, The next posting will be to finish off the build thread and then on to something else before I attack the UHU02 Viper. I added a few more details than on the plans and built the cannon totally different from the plans. In my version of the cannon build, it is a single cylinder and the details are added around the cylinder shape. In the plans, the parts are end glue by section and are not sturdy enough for constant handling. A solid cylinder, you can move around without being too careful that it will not come apart. I like the way the 50 Cal looking auto gun came out. I will have to make another one for the Baneblade. Still a few more photos and then another build in progress.:thumb:

    Very nice build. Your model has the look and robusteness of a genuine warhammer model!

    Thank you for looking in and for your comment. For the look of the model, I also checked on GW models for reference and joined that with Patoroch's design. The GW reference gives me the view for how thick to laminate and bring out the relief of the parts.


    Here are the last photos of the Punisher. I could continue adding details, but I will hold it as is and get on to another subject. The next model will another 40K but it is not on the Armormans, list of models. It is a request from another designer and it is to be a Beta build. No instructions but at least I have ample reference photos for it. By the way, it will be an enemy of the Imperium. Enjoy and I hope that you all have enjoyed the build thread. Thanks to Patoroch for his outstanding work and in designing it. I have taken some liberties in the build but over all, it is true to his design. :thumb:

    Thanks for the compliment Zathros, One reason i like the warammer models, is that I can change or add to the model and I do not have to worry about the accuracy of the vehicle since in warhammer theory, the vehicles are made in different forge worlds and each one varies from the each other. I am going to take a short break from Warhammer and do something else. See you all in the next build thread.:wave:
