WH40K Baneblade tank build

Hello all,

I've recently started building the Baneblade tank paper model from Warhammer 40K. I usually build plastic models but have done a few paper models in recent times.

I'm a slow builder, so I will post progress pics as and when I can squeeze in some build time I'm starting off with the chassis first, then followed by wheels and tracks, followed by the turret.

Comments, advice are most welcome!
Thanks
Alan

Here are some pictures of the chassis build. It's heavily laminated so as to withstand handling, and I use foamboard to help stiffen the structure.

Next up is the engine compartment. Even though its more work, I decided to cut out the grills as I think they look better that just being printed on.

I also modified the hinges, as I found the original hinges looked too flat, and I wanted it to look more realistic. I cut up strips of paper, and rolled them up, then squeezing both sides of the roll with my fingers to get that 'hump' shape of the grills.

For the other engine cover, it had a lot of grills over it (part 17 in the picture), so I decided to cut the whole rectangle out, and glue in individual grills, and used the same method of hinges mentioned in the previous post for the cover.

Just realized that I may have had to post this in 1 of the sub-forums. Do I need to move this to one of the sub-forums?
If so, can any administrator move this thread to a correct sub-forum? Not sure if its either "Armor" or "Alternate Dimensions"?

Thanks
Alan

Hi Floogen, I'm really glad you moved your thread here; I rarely read the other forums, and it is great to see the progress that you have made here! I love the fine work you are putting into cutting out all the grill vents, and the hinges look absolutely fantastic!
