Finally completed my stormraven. I'll be honest, it wasn't smooth sailing. I ran into a gut-wrenching, hair-pulling, almost testing the aerodynamics of the bulky raven by throwing it out of my window trouble....
I've learned the hard way that even a thinned down citadel badab black wash will leave a white frosting effect when it dries. Crap!!! That's the last time i use that stuff as an overall wash again. Back to using normal inks for me in the future.
The main downside of the frosting is it didn't let the final airbrush of flat to cover the areas around the decals which i had brushed on future to let the decals adhere better. So if u look closely, you'll see a very evident color difference.
Luckily i was able to remain calm and knew for a fact that a turbo boosting plastic stormraven kit out the window would not have made my day better....
Close up of the multi-melta and sensor lights which i'm quite fond of. It did turn out nicely methinks :)
Close up of the front port lights. Am very happy that i've finally learned how to do this effect. Not perfect but it's a personal achievement for me :)
These are my special addition to my stormraven :)
AAABM Mars pattern MkIV missiles. Advanced Anti Anything Bloodstrike Missiles. When i first saw the kit i knew i had to use these babies and make the raven look more menacing. After looking through 6 big boxes of airplane kits i finally managed to find them. Would do u think?
My photo studio isn't big enough to get this view on full white background but nice silhouette i think. 4 badass AAABMs ready to wreck havoc on the enemies of mankind.
My humble photo studio/painting table/reading table/blog updating station.
Thanks everyone for following my progress. Good hobbying to all of you.
