Showcase: Caestus Assault Ram
Finished, and what a kit. This is the biggest FW kit I've put together, not yet being in the Titan club, (I'm in the 'where would my wife let me keep it' club instead). It wasn't too bad actually, compared to the AWFUL Mk2b Landraider of January which still gives me nightmares.
It is a fairly simple process to achieve a look like this. Essentially you airbrush, weather then finish. There are complications, (like how do you paint the inside?) but if you think it through they're always surmountable.
Note that it's sitting on the flyer base 'backwards' - this is because the model is so rear heavy that to put it on the right way round is to have it fall off the first time you exhale. Trust me.
