Ever wondered what the inside of a Thunderhawk looked like… well wonder no more! I love the first pic here. I can imagine the first pilot saying to the second pilot “I told you not to park the Thunderhawk in the rough part of town”.
To get all these parts to fit took a fair bit of sanding but not too much heating and bending.
In these pics you can see the single support pin I choose to use to hold and support the wings. The last picture shows the transport area (30 marines according to the rules) and a nice touch is the bolter rack for stowed weapons. You can also see the rear door. That’s 4 access points in total, 1 of which is an assault ramp
always wondered how much detailing FW put into the Thawks. thanks for those pictures, looks sweet.
the transport/cargo area is in the front, right? okay, either i have no idea of how large the model really is or it's slightly out of scale. 🙂 on the other hand, most of the tanks are, too.
anyways, 30 marines in one of those beasts would mean, that a real live thunderhawk would actually be much larger than i ever thought. which lends more crediblity to their accalimed lethality.
garfy, please keep up the great how to-tutorial you got going here. if i ever get around to own one of these beasties to support my own ultras, i now have an awesome source for how to tackle the project.
Hi Kenza, the front is indeed the transport area. It's on 2 levels and I think it could house 30 marines standing up. Theres no seating or strapping for them though.
Thanks for taking the time to comment dude.
