So after nearly two months there is a new update. Exhausts are on 70% finished.
Cool model, looks a bit better than the ravenwing version, might be because it's less cluttered and all.
The first wing is completed and glued to the hull (with basic airbrush). Handlebars and left exhaust are not glued (just want to show it will look like in the future )...
Details are amazing.
I am super amazed at the amount of detail you can work into the model. Any suggestions on how to improve as when I try I tend to get glue everywhere.
I am doing some beta testing for Ing. Spendlik, so I might post something from my test build
From cutting frames (lasers are for wimps ):
Building the base:
Base taking shape & detailing:
And more detailing:
And putting it all together:
Basic home made airbrush studio:
And recently, the jets:
Being beta tester for Ing. Spendlik is a joy. You are building in fact a complete, very nearly flawless model (or it seems so, so far)
I have finally completed second and third wing. Model is gaining on its size. The red&white cube has 5cmx5cmx5cm. Model is on 70% completed but the biggest and the most problematic part is in front of me. There will be really hot winter for me...
Ok, we are ready for the paint shop!
Meanwhile, the work continue in digital form. I have created head and the body of the eagle on the shield. But the worst part of this "ornament" is still in front of me - wings of the eagle
Eagle on the front shield is nearly completed (only legs are missing)....
Okey - after three or four months I am back to my hobby. After few hours of work I have finished the main shield and eagle on it. 3D model of whole JetBike is on 99% completed.
That is simply wicked cool, applause and kudos !
This is wicked to glue, too. A few pics to prove that:
Inside formers and outer skin:
Outer skin and inner skin, including some tinies:
Completed, more or less:
Not exactly what it should look like.
Ugh. Not a good try, this one. wall1 When I looked at how it should look like (bent here, curved there...) I will try again.
But I can´t wait to try the birdy-thingy on the front :mrgreen:
Still, very nice!
Me likie...I cant wait for it to be, I hope, released so I can have a nice center piece model to show off with
Man that's awesome. I wish I could make a fairing lower for my Suzuki that looked like that!
Aww right. Front shield, retried. Better, I can say Much more similar to how it should be.
I added a former for the lower part, as well as all the formers are more precise... It really helps
(the better one is on the left )
Inside structure of the wings. Nice, holds the shape well. No problem here
"Birdy thingy". All right, I regret calling him that. This eagle is really cool. The upper parts of the wings were pretty hard to get right, but I managed, somehow Last photo is how it should fit on the shield.
Less and less parts remaining. I start to worry about how I will finally paint it. I missed the chance to leave it as a white model (I like white models, actually), so I will have to cope somehow...
Very impressive job, I'm hurry to see all finished model.
It is time to start finishing
Watch out! He´s got a brush and watercolors and is not afraid to use it!
Plasma Cannon (I do not like the color too much and will do something about it...):
Rear part with the jets:
Finished front shield:
Best of all is putting all of this together:
The Bird is in place:
Both exhausts, I rather like how these came out:
Wings and steering, both needs some finihing touches:
And twin linked heavy bolters (I think, at least), fresh from the armory )
A question for the WH4k heads here: What is this thing next to the steering? It will go behind the plasma cannon, aiming at the ground. I can´t quite figure this out...
