Super excited to be working on a vehicle again. It's really more my style to spend a lot of time on one model than try to make a whole squad pretty. This is a complicated model to build and paint, but it's coming along great.
Last week I showed my first progress on my newly unboxed Stormraven when I showed you how I go about drilling out all 30 barrels on this crazy thing. This model is certainly not up to GW's most recent standards, but the tools are still in decent shape so cleanup and assembly hasn't been too bad. I decided I wanted to paint the inside on this one. Why? I don't know. I've never once opened any of my Devilfish/Hammerheads. There's just so much detail in there it felt like a crime to not paint it. The model was certainly not designed with assembly order and painting in mind though. I assembled as much of the interior as I could to minimize the number of individual parts while keeping my brush angles open. I really should have figured out how I was going to handle magnetizing my side doors/gun sponsons at this point, but I was impatient and wanted to see some paint.
I went to start painting, set the model down on my chair while I covered up my computer and set up my spray booth, and promptly sat on my model. Freaking moron.
Lots to do, but I'm having fun! Anyone have a recommendation on doors and sponsons? I want to be able to see inside so I kind of want to keep them openable, but for that I probably should magnetize now before I move any farther.
