40K Scale Cargo Ship
I decided I wanted something to flesh out the airfield/starport I built. Next up, I need a couple of industrial sized landing pads. The size of the main cargo secion was specifically designed for the GW cargo boxes to be able to fit. Theoretically the sides fold up and a lifting device slides the boxes in.
Still deciding on if I want to model crew for the inside. Plenty of time to go back and add later.
Clearly the engines will need to be overhauled. This was my first time to try this technique. Not super happy with the result but it was a worthy experiment.
And anyone who knows my work should have anticipated I was going to build two. Because I did. So there.
Construction started as some Star Wars toys, plasticard, tons of bits, and lots and losts of super glue and polystyrene plastic.
I stripped the toy of spare bitz to reduce weight on the cargo section (I reinforced it and the details I added helped but I didn't want to stress the body). I foresee the parts making their way to an ork Gargant or something. Lots of good parts.
