    Started on a Sicaran from Patoroch's models tonight. Reinforced the main body with foamcore, and 3 layers of 110lbs. cardstock for the armor. I messed up on the hull mounted heavy bolter, I forgot to cut the hole for it.

    Nice job..I can see some nice clean work going on there on some really HEAVY armor!
    (?) Is that a cut or a fold on the triangular piece on the side below the roof and behind the front? ( Just curious as I am not familiar with the model )... look forward to seeing more...!!:)

    Probably a cut. I am trying to eliminate the glue tabs that come with the models because I find that they get in the way of certain parts fitting.

    I will be following this, always had a thing for tanks, especially fictive ones with a more "extravagant" design.

    Your additions to the model really add up the look, love it!

    The glue tabs interfere with every model they are on. This model is so heavily build, with Micro R/C/ stuff, you could power it up, and make it radio control !! :)

    And some updates on last night's work. Got the treads done and a majority of the armor. Today is going to be "exhausting" ;) and a bit of work on the turret and side sponsons. I used some heavy plasticard under where the main turret goes because I didn't want to layer 20+ layers of cardstock. 14632626_734587294952_1470932428_o.jpg 14618909_734587289962_287939753_o.jpg

    Great Job! That is one heavy Monster! and I most definitely agree with tabs...cut them all off and apply what you need on the back..

    Got a little bit done on the turret tonight. I couldn't get the paper template to work for the main body of the turret, so I cut some insulation foam I use for terrain pieces and sanded it into shape, then gave it a nice coat of Spackle to smooth it down a bit more. 14678116_734669415382_1549532462_o.jpg

    Just a couple little details left for the turret and then it's complete. Tomorrow is calling for the remainder of the engine and exhausts, and possibly the side sponsons. The turret is magnetized to allow removal and easy turning. 14724003_734790871982_1645299093_o.jpg 14689978_734790886952_1258666195_o.jpg 14689978_734790886952_1258666195_o.jpg 14724003_734790871982_1645299093_o.jpg

    This has really come together beautifully!
    What paint scheme are you going to paint it?

    Got one heavy bolter side sponson added. Main turret and side sponsons are magnetized. 14699502_734923810572_1991574811_o.jpg 14724003_734790871982_1645299093_o.jpg 14724225_734923825542_745769346_o.jpg 14787699_734923805582_1172313307_o.jpg 14796152_734923815562_2057269867_o.jpg

    Outstanding!! I'm not into the WarHammer40K stuff too much, a tank without suspension is a traveling coffin on an oxcart, but now and again, someone makes something that looks cool, like this. ;)
