Nevertheless, I did work on the ATHENE. I started with the folding (Ammo) crane for the rocket launcher ... hmm still need a name for that one....
Here are the basic parts
and folded down completely
Then I added the hydraulic cylinders
and it works pretty well
nfortunately I glued one of the pieces wrongly, so I have to take it apart again, and re-assemble the hydraulics again.Also I will change the 3 bars in the rear, and replace them with a steampunk-style plate.
Thanks to Lucius von Kalteisen and Fireball at WIP I have some new IG crew torsos and legs I can work with to create a good crew for the ATHENA.
For this purpose I createda first Naval Fleet paintscheme test
