Marauder Destroyer Pt. 5 (Some small progress)

As promised, before 537.010M3! Even if just barely.

I've finished out the cockpit details and the crew. I say finished, but what I mean is, "gone back and fiddled with" as much as I'm going to. I'm not the super interior detail master that some out on the interweb are, but I've put some paint on the inside of the plane anyway.

Here are a couple shots of the crew, cockpit, and dorsal gunner...

The rear of the cockpit is molded onto the plane itself. This shot is from the 'nose' looking towards the tail.

So now comes the joyous time of airbrushing. I've been doing a lot of pondering on how to paint this odd shaped beast. The answer finally came to me just yesterday! I think this idea is many shades of cunning and should work on a Marauder or Marauder Destroyer...

And a close up...

That's right, just hang it out to paint! Now I just need something to hang it from that's within reasonable reach of my airbrush. This will be great and allow me to spray it all over without having to wait for bits here and there to dry so I can turn it over and such. Please hold your applause till the end of the blog.

On another note, I've been reading the Gaunts Ghost third omnibus, The Lost. I'm working through the first book, Traitor General right now. It's a great book, but then all the Gaunts Ghost stories are. I don't know about you, but when I read a good 40K book, it makes me want to work on stuff for that army. I think this time is the exception. I just keep thinking how much easier the Ghosts would have it with a couple of Warhounds traipsing across the countryside. I can't wait to finish the Marauder Destroyer and start the Hounds!

Please feel free to leave any comments you wish. I like the praise and have a pretty thick skin in regards to critiques, so bring it on!
