Last nights work.
Now for tonights work. Only had a hour to work on the Skimmers. It's been awhile since I hung out with my damn good friend Donnie. Love that guy. Grabbed a couple of drinks at my watering hole Williams Peanut Bar. As soon as I arrived home started painting. Some is better than none.
To be completely honest I took a pic of this but not sure why. If you can figure out why please let me know.
As promised, Samuel, here is the connection of the cockpit to the top of the hull. They were already glued together so it'd be difficult to show you how the canopy attaches. I have pics later showing the canopy lifted to give you an idea.
Sensor arrays painted Chaos Black.
Different view of the arrays.
Here's your pic, Samuel. You can see how the canopies lift without interference to anything else. This is the maximum the canopies will open. Beyond this is what you refer to them as breaking. Trust me. It takes a lot to break the canopies. As soon as you start lifting and feel the tension increase you'll stop and it will stick.
Correcting my error from last night. Specifically not putting Sunburst Yellow over the Skull White. Closer image of how the canopy is not glued at all. It sits in the divet of the head rest. It freely moves up and down when put together correctly.
Sunburst Yellow over Skull White. Remember painting over white allows to keep the colour you're planning then painting over black. You'll need more layers over black to get the consistency even. Start with white you'll do better.
And the three become one. I'm done with the lower part of the hull. Only thing to work on is the top part. Figure since I'm done with the bottom part of the hull except for little Brassy Brass I would be glue them together. Exactly as Samuel shared in a previous post. Use glue sparingly. There's no reason to end up with a mess, as he learned. Put a couple of lines on key pieces that connect the bottom to the top and voila done! Hopefully I'll complete these Sat. Really want to start Shawn's Eldrad.
