Seems the internet is full of those, cos apparently, like me, not many people like the “stubbyness” of the original.
I used a little plasticard and putty, but mostly the original parts in the kit. All I did, was alter the stuff I didn't like.
for me, the tail was too short, so I took the tail section of the end of the fuselage and rebuilt it as an add-on to the end, rather than being above and below it. if you have one, you can see the three tail section pieces in their new position.
I repositioned the weapons as the original was way too nose heavy.. the guns went back into the body more, with the carriage rebuilt and the feet moved off, away from being placed on the ball jointed gun. *ahem*
The rocket pods went under the wing.. as they wouldn't be direct fire anyway I figured that they'd be on a slightly vectoring wingtip wouldn't matter.. the vehicle got a space wolf pilot and icon too. stay tuned for my thoughts on allies to see why ;)
So there you have it, my take on the StormTalon I prefer the lines Ive adjusted it to here, but I’ sure there are lots of opinions out there, so please feel free to share.
While you ponder, here are some more pics.
