Today I primed the cabin insides in 73.601 Grey Surface Primer through my airbrush. When the inside is painted, I will seal the openings with tape and glue the cabins to the hulls - the outside will then be painted with the rest of the VTOLs.

Tobias printed the cabins. Thanks!

Squat Stunty Scout

The Scout is done. I tried again to stick to the original description of Squats colourwise:

Squats prefer muted colours reminiscent of the rocks and sands of their Home Worlds: browns, greys and green are popular in varying shades and mixtures, as are black, white and deep red - it is common for seams and piping to be picked out in a contrasting colour.

A chance find recently on ebay, this lovely little one just had to be bought :-) A blast from the past.

He will support my Brotherhood sappers I finished recently.

Thanks to Tobias I have my prototpye. It fits well onto he model :-)

With the basic form confirmed, I added some more details. On the front wall I added a bench with 5 seats. This will be quite cramped, but this is a military vehicle after all and no luxury plane.

On the rear side I added a seat for the gunner, and two racks with spare ammo drums for the machine gun.

This is the final version now that I will use with the landers.

Here are the models in their current state deployed in formation. The extra four models are replacement weapons for the support weapons in the fire teams, regulating firepower depending on mission requirements.

Still to do:

  • static grass for the bases
  • replace the flimsy, broken plastic rods with metal rods
  • create and paint the back banners
  • create the decals for the shoulder pads. I don't want to paint the chapter icon on all these models as a free hand design...

Finally some progress. I roughly recreated the machine gun from Brigade Models in OpenSCAD, and added in the rear wall an opening for the gunner. The machine gun will be mounted on the contraption I added there.

Time for a test print.

I now gave the models a coat of gloss varnish to protect the work done so far. The gloss coat will allow me to remove paint with alcohol without damaging the underlying colour, this might be helpful with the free hand shoulder pad designs I plan to do.
