    Hi Y'all. Long time no see.
    It's been while since I made any paper/card model.
    Few days back I've started Spartan. Finally it's gonna be addition to my Chaos Space Marines army.

    Awesome. I don't know why more people don't use hinges like that for tracked vehicles. They come in quite a few sizes. The ones used for ailerons in R/C planes are a bit smaller, and less visible, and would work well for smaller scale vehicles, and also as hinges for doors, so they can open and close smoothly. Great job! :)

    Are you using currency for the bogey wheels!! That is great!! It is quite beastly looking. Can't wait to see how it looks when painted. :)

    Yeah. It took me a while to make this decision. I've used lowest value ones ;) It was the cheapest proxy for wheels :D 1mm larger that original ones but they did the trick.

    I think it was a great choice. Having been a machinist, Tool and DYe, and CNC programmer, I love the use of metal in model. I like multi media models a lot, and your model epitomizes building with greebling at it's best. :)

    Ladies & Gentleman it's finished :)
    After long months model spend in closet I was very motivated to end it as fast as possible- quality suffered a bit but it was holding me down with other stuff I have to finish so... I hope You'll like it more than I do. 20170322_100335.jpg 20170322_100204.jpg 20170322_100218.jpg 20170322_100234.jpg 20170322_100243.jpg 20170322_100317.jpg 20170322_100403.jpg 20170322_100437.jpg

    Great work. Thanks for sharing. The only things needed are the spiky things and impaled heads and body parts that are the trade mark of Chaos, but I am sure you have some of that stuff in your bitz bin. So what is next?
