I’ve started building my first Land Raider. It is, for me, one of the iconic vehicles for Warhammer 40k. One of the first advertorials for the game in White Dwarf had a kit bashed Land Raider, and that image got me interested in the game. I believe that a friend showed it to me while waiting for a school assembly to begin. So, as said, for me it’s iconic.
- I’ve constructed the main part of the hull today and I’ve some notes already
- I’m going to glue the doors shut. This avoids me having to spend time painting the interior and would anyone really want to see inside a Nurgle Land Raider?
- I’ve cut down and smoothed away the Imperial Aquilla on the front door and the Adeptus Mechanicus skull on the rear.
- There’s going to be a fair bit of filling to be done, there are some gaps where the top of the hull joins the side and the exhaust pipes at the rear don’t join up too well.
I’m going to take my time on this, this is the biggest and most expensive single 40k model I’ve built to date so I’d like to be pleased with what I achieve.
