    The craft is weathered. Not much on updates, other than the rivets, which was time consuming. The rust is made from a diluted brown ink wash. The LCP was in pristine condition when it arrived into the theater. The caustic polluted waters quickly started to give the craft a rusted look but the effects are only superficial. The structural integrity of the craft is not compromised.

    For the rivets, I used a syringe. I discarded the needle due to it getting clogged and I could not get the glue to flow freely. Just a drop at a time to each point of connection and it came out ok.

    So much for now, see you all next posting.:wave:

    Well, here is the first batch of details, Still have a few more to go and the crew is being prepped as well. I will go to the Hobbit hobby shop and see if I can find a half dressed penitent sister to modify and place her as a sun bathing deck ornament.

    The life preservers I scratched built by rolling a thin strip of yellow ochre paper stock. the cross braces were from white paper strips and the hand hold rope from cross stitching thread. The rope cleats came from my boat building bitz box and the tow/port ropes from hemp thread. At the aft section, I drilled six holes and placed cylindrical paper tubes to represent the bilge, gray and black water pipes. Two scratched built anchors not made to traditional standards.

    There are still more details to come but I already said that before. Enjoy the build and see you all around the next posting. (It may be an Eldar water attack water craft)

    Ok... that's where I draw the line mate. Trying to make this look canon and including safety flotation devices. I am unconvinced....


    Seriously though, those look awesome!

    Tirick, One thing about the lifer preservers, is that the technique also applies to other real boat models as well.

    I know I said it once and again, I still have a few more details to do. This model is finished but it seems I am doing and overkill on the details. Here is a new batch of stuff for the LCP, Fire extinguishers, pallets, drums and a crate. The crew is on hold for the moment but enjoy the photos and see you all next posting.

    I believe that I will end this build here with these last photos, and move on to another subject. The only thing lacking is a stand but that can wait for another time. The plans will be up soon as I finish tweaking a few items.

    The communications array is in place as well as two spot lights on both sides of the pilot house. The crew are stock Catachans without armaments. The pants are jean blue and the vest are painted to represent the life jackets. There are two las rifles next to the ammo lockers but not visible in the photos.

    I hope that you have all enjoyed the build. I should have made a separate thread in the ships category for this one, but I did not expect it to be so long in the build process. The last photos will be in the next posting, since I can download only six at a time.

    See you all in the next event and God willing and the creek don't rise, see you all around the forums.:wave::wave::wave:

    The landing craft is finished and you can download it over at ecardmodels. The model has certain details stuff missing, like the fire extinguishers, life preservers, anchors, pallets and crates. This items will come later as an add-on (payload). They will also come in handy for dioramas and extra stuff for you models other than warhammer as well. enjoy and here is the link... http://ecardmodels.com/product_info.php?products_id=1667

    I hope that you enjoyed the build and the freebie. At the moment, I have three more in this series. The little boat is finished but I am working on the pictures and tweaking the plans. I plan to put this one up on ecardmodels sales section and I have to make sure that the parts fit right. Once I build it from the plans (AGAIN) and feel comfortable with the fit, I will upload it. Enjoy and see you all around the forums.

    Here is a semi finished look next to the Landing Craft.

    It is not the patience but the fact that I am retired and have the time available.

    Even though this boat is geared for the Alternate dimension and table top wargaming, I decided to give it its own thread separate from my Warhammer armor and things. This little boat is a complement to the free Landing Craft I built earlier that is at Ecardmodelers. It is a two man craft and is about 1/48 scale but can be also used in the 1.35 scale. The plans are done but this will be my first for sale craft over a Ecards. I am working on the photos at the moment and will start to post the build thread soon. There are some tricky parts but with the thread you should be able overcome any problems encountered. My table top models are built heavily laminated and have some weight to them. The reasoning for it, is that my models can withstand heavy usage and will not crumble with finger pressure. Here are some photos of the Beta (The Gray version) and the textured version which will be the sale version. The downloads will include three versions, The white, the colored and the textured. Here are some photos of the boats with the Landing Craft. Enjoy and see you all soon with the build thread.

    Imperial Drop Ship/Shuttle Craft

    I was going to do another water craft but I had a brain F**T (burp). And came up with something new, An Imperial Guard drop ship/shuttle craft. It is geared towards the Imperial Guard troops but specifically the Storm Troopers. The troops are seated against the wall and the center is open for supplies and crew serve weapons. These pictures are like a teaser and I am still working on the beta model. I should have sketched it out but I am doing it out of my imagination and the outside is will be next. It will have four or more forward firing cannons to clear the landing field as it comes in for a landing. I hope to have this craft done before the end of November. I will be back soon with more updates but they may be a little slower than the other ones. Enjoy and stay tune for more.:wave::wave::wave:
