Hi Guys :)
It's been a while since last build. I must admit that I didn't plan starting new one but I simply couldnt resist :D
I plan that GORGON ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPORT will be serving Chaos Cultists.

Part 1 main surface had been glued on 1mm cardboard, than sides have attached.
Part 1a is also 1mm cardboard.
Then part 17 have been cutted into stripes which I glued individually alternately.
Parts 2 and 2a (R and L side) where glued to 1mm card and after cutting them out I've started assembling inner walls of transporter.
Parts 18, 18a, 19 and 19a are 1mm thick.
Parts 20, 21, 22, 24. 25, 26, 26b are 0,5mm card.
Parts 26a 1mm.
Part 3 (L/R) are standard printing paper.
Parts 4 and 4a are 1mm thick- part 4a demanded triming on sides so it could fit between parts 3L/3R.
Part 5 have been cut into 2 pieces and bottom part have been thickened to 1mm with cardboard.
Part 5a is 0,5mm cardboard- I want little bit lighter armour impression on Imperial Guard vehicle than I would do on Space Marines stuff ;)
Rivets are punched out of "technical paper" using injection needle.

That is a lot of "heavy duty cutting"! But the results are well worth it .. looking Great !

I like that aspect of a well built model. If some kid dropped it, in awe, he doesn't get chastised for maybe fumbling it. ;)
