It's been another slow 2 weeks of painting due to other commitments, but here is the progress, which is minor in some cases, and quite decent in others.
So we start with some work on the UH-1 Black Hawk helicopter I'm building to go with a 28mm Force on Force Vietnam collection, as might be obvious, the helicopter is for the US, and more specifically, the US Army.
I've got the main body glued together, along with the main rotor assembly and the tail rotor:
|Main body as of last weekend|
|Tail and rear rotor|
|The main rotor blades and the assembly for them|
The cockpit has also been glued into position, but the chassis barely fits in around the cockpit and interior:
|There is a seating bench that fits on the pipe and box shaped part of the rear of the interior. I just need to find where I put it on the painting table.....|
|The poor fitting bottom of the helicopter|
|Under-coated rotor blades|
|Painted nose, shown dry-fitted to the main body of the helicopter|
|Side-view of the helicopter so far|
|Main coat is done, now for the flag on the left shoulder, and the weapons and metal areas of the suit before attaching the head and varnishing the model. Next to the WIP model is a previously completed suit for comparison.|
Anyhoo, I've started to add some more yellow to the old Rogue Trader Land Raider, and a Veteran I started a while ago, but some problems have developed with the yellow paint being too low in pigment for an effective coat of paint, but I have some work in progress pictures anyway:
|Old Rogue Trader Land Raider being souped up|
|One veteran, which by chance shows the size when compared to an Empress Miniatures 28mm SAS trooper|
|The Landship so far|
|Very small tanks, which are very big in the fluff, and Dystopian Legions, where a concept render is available to view on Spartan Games, being equivalent to a Warhammer 40k Baneblade in size|
Finally, as a end to the update, I have also begun work on one of three Cruisers for my Firestorm Armada Directorate fleet:
|Just started on the basecoat|
I shall attempt to update this blog once a week as it used to be on a more regular basis again.
Until next week....
