Marauder destroyer

Greetings to all and to all, hello,

I know that it has been awhile sense my last model posting, but I have a evaluation build thread for you now.

A few months ago, I attempted to build the Marauder Destroyer from 40k Warhammer. I ran into quite a few problems. Everything ranging from the instructions are not that good, to parts either not fitting properly, or parts missing altogether.
Upon the request of Armorman, I am now doing this build/evaluation thread on this model, to help those who want to build it.

WORD OF WARNING! IF YOU BUILD THIS MODEL, DO NOT RUSH THROUGH IT! PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INSTRUCTIONS AND LOOK AHEAD TO SEE HOW THE PARTS FIT TOGETHER!

After looking my first run through with this model, I did notice that some of the parts either were missing some of the glue tabs, or just did not have any glue tabs at all. (I do know that for some of you out there, that is not a problem. For me though, I do like glue tabs.)

I have started off with the front and rear cannon sections. These first set of photos are of the rear cannon system. This section is very straight forward so far.
As you can see here,.
There are a small set of instructions for the twin cannon system on the first sheet of parts for this section.

I assembled the individual parts first. After that, I put the components together

Here I added a small part to help with holding the barrels together.

As you see here, all of the barrels are fitted together

Be sure that you do not attach parts component 29 to the rest of the twin cannon system until after you have assembled parts component 2 and have slid the twin cannon system in place. (I will show this in my next posting.)

ENJOY!!!

I am using 180 gr. card stock. You can get away with thicker (up to 250 gr. for most of the body work) if you want.

Front cannon system

Hello Every one, I am now starting on the front cannon system.

So far, everything is fairly straight forward. I have added some glue tabs to some of the parts for better mounting(please look at the photos for the parts that I added the glue tabs to).

Other then the lack of glue tabs, I have not ran into any problems yet.

Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure.

Just to let everyone know, there are two types of "Marauder", there is the regular Marauder and the Marauder Destroyer. Both have the same main body and wings, the only difference are the front and rear cannon systems.
THIS ONE IS FOR THE MARAUDER DESTROYER.
I may build the regular Marauder at a later date.

Wow, that looks awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing the finished model. You are truly a master of the art! (And thanks for the link!) I know I have to be more active here, but I am so busy managing my threads on the other forum at zealot..!
