Great work I can't wait to try this one.
Great work I can't wait to try this one.
(It seems that there is been a bug )
textures are nearly done
i think i'll use this one for my test build
Gads that's a thing of beauty. I wish I had one to drive to work in.
That is awesome! Will you be providing texture maps for recolors?
Yes, I'm actually posting them tonight.
Started the test build and found a few minor issues with flaps that i already fixed. the size of the textures is pretty big in BMP so i'll try in JPEG, not too compressed.
The model seems ok to release as well, at least from my perspective. Eventually i'll bump into flap issues again but nothing anybody here can't handle.
I'm also opening a new thread for the Leman russ, some pictures are already on this post but I don't think everybody actually saw them since it was a long time back
the work in progress, the white model was one of the old tests, i sprayed it with chrome paint, the result looks much better that the pictures show.
Added a few parts to it as i go, eventually it will be a finished land-raider
not being too careful on the blue test model, the color came out wrong but on photoshop, papekura and another printer looks right so i'll have to adjust mine.
laminating the front doors on 1 millimiter card as well as the top piece. all the parts that are reinforced should be so on 1 mm card.
total size of the textures in bmp format is 12 meg, way too big to upload here.
the ultramarines textures are in the Zip files, jpeg format.
As far as i am concerned they can be used or modified as needed by anyone
you'll see there is one that has not been very used yet, the weapons texture. that's for the future updates of the land raider
I cannot wait to finish up some projects and build up one of these bad-boys. It is unbelievable the level of detail you've layered onto this, mate. Awesome!
thanks for the comment Tirick.
I printed several tests of the model and wanted to add more detail so started adding layers of card to the logos.
turned out pretty good, i'll eventually add these on a seperate sheet but have to figure out how to set the correct size
pictures show the logos laminated on 1mm cardboard, that made them very hard to cut, specially on the rounded logo...
the part next to the logos on the table is the engine, almost done with it as well and the central module will be finished.
I've found with rounded bits that laminating layers of cardstock and cutting when they are about 2-3 thick works the best. More cutting, but cleaner edges. Really helped on the legs for the Sentinel (one of those pesky projects in front of this one).
Test build progress so far. I had two offers for help with the test but no updates so i'll release the model as I have it. found no major issues when building it.
This is the second time that i got offers to test build and then no news...
The weapons emplacements are not done yet so in some pictures I put the plastic ones. I will most likely finish the test today...finally.
a few more pictures with both track modules assembled. Tracks are printed and ready to be added to the model.
finally it's done.
The model works fine and there are minor adjustments, here and there, but i consider it finished
Moving on to the leman russ and something a bit more ambitious.
many construction hedges are still visible and I didnt take much care when build it.
The texture looks better now with color, I took into account the comments about the resolution and redone many of the lines, it was worth it.
It's a very solid model with the double laminated side parts.
Comments are welcome, thank you to all those that have been watching this tread
The ONLY comment I can make: When can I get my hands on one?!
Seriously the best 40K vehicle paper model I've seen to date. Excellent work!
Wow, really impressive. I would normally not like to use the printed graphics, but this model is turning out great. I would not bother to paint it up myself if I used your model.
Great stuff, keep it up!
I have uploaded the PDO model, waiting moderation
have to tell you my man, that looks awesome
Wow! I want one. Or several. But at least one. Fantastic work!
