Ergonomically Terrific!

Hey gang! Just a quick post to throw out my thoughts on one of the new Eldar kits out there that has me very excited!

The Wraithfighter/Hemlock kit!

As an avid enthusiast of aircraft as well as an Aerospace Engineering student this kit really does tick a lot of the boxes for me!

Seen below in classical 3-view configuration it can be seen very easily that this aircraft for once displays signs of aerodynamic balancing as a sub sonic interceptor. I say subsonic for a few key reasons of which I will talk about after the pictures!

So I've been a busy boy

It's been a little while since last time I posted anything for the general public and suffice it to say I have indeed been a pottering in my 'workshop' also known as 'The study' or 'What the fuck happened, oh my god how did it get on the CEILING!'

Over the next few weeks I will endeavour to bring up the sum total of work on the blog, however due to the fact that I still study (apparently anyway) this may be a slow process.

So the Ultramarines do indeed come along, with only a few mishaps so far but a bevy of new hobby challenges, including new sculpting techniques, NMM, wet blending and some tricky airbrush work... oh and water effects.
The Contemptor Dreadnought has to be one of the sexiest models ever!
