And here, at last, pictures of the beast in it's finished form. A quick resume' first though. The Star Wars Slave One ship has always looked like a Hovertank to me. I managed to get one cheap 'with parts missing' from kitsforcash. A cut'n'shut job on the lower hull gave me the basis of the tank. The spares boxes & two cheap Airfix Tiger tanks gave me the rest. The figure is Rolf. He is the tank commander. A little short for 1/48th perhaps, but he is only about 18. He was in an Aircraft kit long ago. I just wonder, how noisy would this thing be? Forget stealth! The skirt is Tiger Tank tracks. No points for spotting the Panzerfaust, a common item in the kreiger world. I think the radiator behind Rolf was originally a non slip surface. Frontal armour was added. Well you would wouldn't you? The main bit is 1/24th Typhoon. Just above the Harrier thruster (now a steering nozzle) in the bin, is spare skirt. (Always useful) (fnar) Last weekend I did a final mist spray of rattlecan white primer. Maybe I should have done another close up of the rusty exhaust. The gun is metal. I can't remember what it was originally used for. Yes, the step by the radiator is bomb fins. The Cowcatcher on the front is another bit from Slave one. The Tiger engine decks are obvious. That's a Stalin wheel in the middle of it. Oh yes, Airfix Matador roof and Panzer IV idler wheel. Other bits ex spares box. (Or Tiger). I forgot to include pictures of the underside and all it's lift fans. Too late tonight, I'll add them tomorrow. Thanks for looking. As always, comments etc are very welcome. There is a WIP thread in the obvious place. Cheers Pete
