I've been itching to give this a go ever since I finished my Alien APC
Here's some quick shots of progress so far. I'm working on the rotating side pods right now

One i've always wanted to build, I had a very nice Halcyon kit of it back in the day so i'm pretty familiar with the layout - Looks like a great start so far.
Sounds like sour grapes to me. He was probably just mad that they kitbashed his design.
I'm not sure if any though went into the firing mechanism of the missiles - is it a loading mechanism or a more traditional rocket launcher system? I decided to take some inspiration from the M21 Rocket Launcher.
Some progress made....
Rear landing gear is next!
-reworked the interior
-air intakes changed for a smoother shape
-reworked rear engine exhausts
-modified the front lights for angled versions - there are several references, some show this as square and some angled, I tihnk the angled version looks better.
-added more panelling details, rivets
-added some interior details in the cargo hold.
Thanks mate. I'm happy with how its turned out. Like anything I've modelled theres always more detail i could add or bits I might have done differently but like I said I'm happy with it and onto the next project which I'm trying to decide on, maybe some character modelling possibly a stormtrooper which has probably been done to death but I haven't done anything other than vehicles (apart from a T-800 Terminator head) so time for a change.
