    Thanks Rhaven, I have so many concept ideas that I have not built a stock model in a while. I have not only an archive of models yet to do but my own design archive is also getting large.

    Well I am back in the saddle again after a short vacation. Now to continue with the Landing craft.

    The railing poles are Toothpicks and the cable is from a black twine. To the front and rear, the thread was placed through a hole in the walkway and super glued in place.

    On the Higgins, the walkway upper is higher and no cable railings. I will probably do this option also, so you do not have to work with the cables and poles. See you all next posting.:wave::wave::wave:

    I know what you are going through with having models in the works that you just can not get to yet. I am still working on a concept fighter that I am having all kinds of problems with. I also have a large "to-do list" of kits that I want to do as well (your Stealth Star is one of them).

    Back to your landing craft, it is looking really good. I like what you are doing with it. Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!

    Again, thanks for the comments. Here are some more updates. For the fuel cells, I used a AA battery as the form and rolled the strip around to the size of the GW fuel cell. I decided to place the cells on the outside of the LCP (Landing Craft Personnel). Made a ledge support platform for the fuel cells. See you all next post.:wave::wave::wave:

    More work on the aft section.

    In the first Photo, I used the box from a sentinel but any small box section will do. Later on, I will do the fuel lines so there are to be drilled four holes for the fuel line connections.

    The side access panels are constructed as well as the engine access plate.

    The deck option are either fixed (glued in place) or removable. With the removable option, you can have different cargo configurations made up and slipped into the deck area. in other words, you can make multiple copies of the deck and configure different payloads. They can be troops, cargo, small vehicles or combination's thereof.

    More to come, stand by.:wave::wave::wave:

    The boat fits right in the 40K universe, nice design.

    Thanks for the comment Beork. There is still a lot more details to come. The rivets are in the works but that is when it is almost done. I am pleased as to how it is coming out and I am contemplating the Riverine patrol boat to complement the LCP.

    Here is a sneak peak to the plans. They will be three variations, in line color, one solid color and color shaded. On the color versions, the rivet locations are indicated. I am still working on some more details and at this time there are six pages of diagrams for each version.

    More on the Landing Craft. Made the fuel lines from paper clips bent and shaped into the desired shape needed. The fuel sensor lines are made from sewing thread and attached from the fuel cells to the junction box at the back of the pilot house. The deck D-Ring tie downs are made from thin wire stripped from electrical wires.

    That looks brilliant Silver! You should be designing models for Forgeworld...

    I have thought about it but I am still perfecting my techniques. I do know how to make molds but the price of silicone has gone up as well as the resin. If Forge World approached me with some incentive, I may consider it. I have a backlog of ideas for vehicles to make. Another idea is to make my own site and have a freebies and sales section but that is on the slow burner at this time.

    Here are a few updates on the exhaust system. The fuel lines are covered up with the junction box cover. In this Beta build, I left the Q-Tip inside the exhaust pipe but for more realism, a micro screwdriver would have been better. Wrap the strip around the screwdriver and pull it out when set. It would be hollow and more reasonable. So much for now, see you all around the forums.:wave::wave::wave:

    Thanks for the comment and Glad that you are enjoying the build.

    Now to continue on with the LCP.

    Placed the side armor on, the rivets will come later.

    The lower ramp base is to the inside and it is laminated with an offset around the edges. I used a screen material for the view grating and covered it with a trimming strip.

    On the inside, there is a strip that will cover the gap between the grated view screen and the lower ramp.

    On the prow, make sure the top edge is angled down. When attempting this step, make sure to glue the bottom first and wait for the glue to set. The reason for the bottom to be glued first, is that this way, you can force the curvature of the prow, when you glue the sides. The top of the prow is glued down. In my beta build I placed a small strip as edging around the upper lip of the prow.

    Here is the last photo of the prow section. This is the inside of the ramp with the grip strips and the front access panel. So much for now, see you all next time around the forums.:wave::wave::wave:

    I am catching up to my photos and here are some more updates. I stopped around here but I will work on propeller screws and rudder next. Still working on the weapons systems for the gun buckets.

    The hinges are made and a straighten paper clip is used as the connector rod.

    The black strip is used to mark the water line and to cover up the water edge joint.

    You can see the forced curvature of the prow in the hinge area photo, as well as the edge trimming mentioned earlier.

    The basic body of the landing craft is done, now to work on some more details. See you all in the next posting.:wave::wave::wave:

    Wow....just wow. You have inspired me to start work on a dreadnought.

    Thank you for sharing such incredible work!

    I am glad to inspire. There are a few Dreadnoughts out there. There are some here, at papermodelers and at paperhammer40k. There is also a 1/16 version that is exquisitely super detailed. Love to see them when you get around to them.:wave::wave::wave:

    Well here I am again with an update on the LCP. I was considering a jet propulsion system but I opted for the old tried and true screw system. This craft has a four bladed prop instead of the traditional three blade version. The blades are made individually and a curve is made to give it stability. If you were to place them straight edge on the hub, they would tend to bend whichever way they want.

    The rudders have a laminated center to about the thickness of the tooth pick. Keep the long end on to facilitate painting or sanding to thin edge if you want. When ready to place into the hull, cut off the excess until it fits fully into the holes.

    In this beta build, I had a large gap at the rear/aft section of the hull. The plans should compensate for this. If you should have a gap, just place a strip and it will be good to go.

    The riveting will be next, followed by the raising and lowering ramp mechanism and finally the weapons systems and a few other small greebles I may come up with. Until then, see you all next posting.

    Very nice detailing silver. I really like the propellers, although the whole model is amazing.
