    Hey all,
    Considering I'm on break, I've managed to get some early work done on this week's model, The Land Ironclad from H.G. Wells' short story. The design is heavily based on the engravings found in the 1904 publication of the story, but manages (I hope!) to keep true to Wells' descriptions.

    I'm almost done with the design (just need to draw the guns and some other details), so in the meantime, enjoy the obligatory design images:

    I'm going to send you through tedium hell with the pedrail wheels:

    Sorry for the terrible quality; as with all my testbuilds, I tend to build them for the fit rather than for appearance :mrgreen:
