VSF walker - some resin additions


A little more progress on the VSF Walker this week, namely the forward view ports and the top hatch. These are cast in resin from the Hirst Arts small pipe mold.



The bottom shows the slot method of swapping-out armament. It's as quick as using magnets and a lot cheaper. Next up will be the smokestack and a few odds and ends for the top deck and turret sides. After that, it'll be on to riveting the hull followed by the paintwork. I've not decided on a finished color scheme yet, although I'm toying with a glossy black and copper look.

Speaking of painting... The build's going to be put on hold for a few days, as the weather forecast this coming week is cool enough to open the windows in my gaming room so I can paint it. What passes for normal service will resume as soon as possible...
