Eldar Skystorm (assembly)

The first step is to destroy 2 falcons, as shown.
This is how it should fit, the "wings" from the centre hull on the front, attatched to the outer hull's "wingtips". The rear of the outer hull gets clipped off at the centre of the turret mount.
How the ineer parts of the engine are cut. This happens to be the easiest part!
The bottoms of the hulls are cut much the same as the upper parts. The outside engines are placed further back, (the second notch on the engine ribbing lines up with the last notch on the inside).
A really blurry shot of the rear end extension. I extended the rear to add summitry, as well as the stabilizing fins.
The bottom of the tank assembled. The additional thrusters from the outside hull fit nicely halfway up the "wings" where they connect. Also, the "gravimetric arrays" positioned on either side close the large gap left from the joining. The nose turret is simply 2 scatterlasers glued to the swivel mount, then covered with the armour plates from the heavy weapon sprue.
The assembled top. The turret was built the standard, with an extension (for summitry) after I added grav ribbing underneath with more card. The guns are pulse lasers with bright lances added, and armour/ammo. The apoc upgrade was used to fill the nasty gap I had on the side from joining the hulls.
Size comparison.
Much green stuff was used to fill the gaps as well as the turret mount which was cut in half. The armour patterns of the hull were duplicated and tied in by drawing lines on the still-wet putty.
The plasticard on the upper surfaces were covered with a thin layer of putty, then the lines added to simulate eldar style. It is now ready for primer!
