Thanks for the feedback guysSpartanTau
My only question is if you tried putting the Piranha sticking out from the side of the engines instead of resting on top?
To be honest it didn’t really come to me at the time. I was working from a image in my head and VERY limited supplies (sitting on a couch with the Piranha kit, a Ion cannon, a Knife and Glue watching Doctor who) so much of it was done on the fly. The main reason I did it this way was so I didn’t have to detail the engine flat (since its normally glued to the hull and you don’t see it)
However Shas Sasa'ka in his recent post has got a piranha with a similar engine config and the wings stuck to the end. Can see it here viewtopic.php?f=35&t=16087
(its in the background behind the painted one
But I'€d like to see a good picture of the drone burst cannons as I'd like to see how you attached the drone body to the cannon itself.
Honestly nothing really to see. All that I did was cut off the little "rivet" sized bits that hang down from the bottom of the drone in so that the burst cannon will sit flat. Then just used a small blob of Blu-Tac to get the position right (Ill just use Green stuff and glue once the painting is done up. Nothing fancy Eiglepulper
If you do decide to construct another one of these, please write up a tutorial for it as well
Consider it done. I’ve also got to do one for the Stealth Drone fighters
so that’s 2 I owe the site Wolfs16
How big is it compared to a regular Barracuda?
I dare say quite a bit smaller, the Barracuda is (I think) bigger than a hammer head gunship! So this is going to be about half the size. BUT since they will be mounted on the larger bases (Valk flying bases) and In games you draw measurements to the base I don’t see it being too much of an issue.Sa'cea Mont'yr
-Seeker Missiles: Personally.....
Always happy to get criticism, helps to keep me grounded and also allows that little voice in the back of my head some vindication
Yep I do see what your saying, the over wing mounting or the Hull mount for some reason really bugged me when I was looking at it. The under mount was the least annoying position out of all the others. I would have mounted it underside of the main hull but they would have kept bumping into the flight mount.... What I might try is using Skyray seeker missiles. Since they don’t have the large "Clamp" they would sit almost flat against the missile pods and help keep the design sleek
-Engines: I'm not sure if it is intentional or not....
It was intentional to an extent. Simply it required less work to have them pointed inwards than it would have if I had of tried to make them in line with the long axis. This would have meant the wings would also not have sat in line with the "cuff" of the engine in-take and required slightly more work than I was willing to put in at the time.
WOOO think thats everyone
Keep it comming though guys
