The engines

First wing

Lots of little pieces - access hatches, wires, hydraulics and tons of rivets

The exhaust jets for the upper wings

Now both wings and the main engine thrusts

the rear finns

The missiles - if you look close you'll see that these are the tips of ballpoint pens :)

The nose

Still some filling and sanding to do

Better :)
The "Brute Cute" slowly takes shape

The lower wings/thruster combo added

Ready for priming!

and the base paint

Adding the Dencara pattern camouflage

I LOVE the doorgunner

The diorama base and a first look of how the camouflage pattern looks in the real environment (Note: These are not the storm troopers, but the Elites of the XIX Guards Regiment )
Now the full storm trooper squad
Staging the contest entry
