This Storm Eagle is supposed to be one of the center pieces of my Sons of Horus army. However no matter how hard I try, I cannot get the kit to fit together properly. This kit is hell. So after another unsatisfying round of trying to fit it together, I decided I would experiment with hydraulics. in order to make the ramps more interesting. The design is relatively simple, and should survive the next dozen attempt to glue the body together. I've got a pack of secret weapon cables that I will glue onto the main portion of the hydraulics as well as some plastic rivets.
So what to do with the front ramp? I can't very well have one cool ramp and not another. I guess it is back to the desk to fabricate another set.
I found my Secret Weapon metal cables and added them to the hydraulics. Also, after consulting the FW directions, it appears they can't even build one of these things with all the angles lining up properly. I think I am good to go. Now I just need to wire in the fiber optics. ;)
Added some paint
