Default Attack Copter Painted

Well I have it mostly painted a few more things to do but its almost done.
The photos suck and its night so again. Blah they suck.

Anyways a few more details and it will be done.
And a little more detail.

But mostly the color and look is what I was trying to show.
Oh and that I finished it also.


Well here you go.



Well I am really happy with it and I will get better photos in daytime and change these out.

So what do you think?
How'd it turn out?

Holy F--- I just found out the name for it. It really does look like a Manati. Sorry but it does.

Oh you do like that new nose and back dont you?

I told everyone I would be rounding it off and going even more fish like with it.

And you know what I thought the same thing!
I swear!

I was going to call it the Tau Manatee so funny.
Tauy Manatee it is then!

Thanks alot guys.

AS far as greenstuff goes.
Actaully ya I used more than I have ever used in my life.
One hole strip of it to be honest.
Made the top hump and then the nose and added green stuff to any and all cracks and seems.
Everywhere I joined stuff.

But when it came time to sanding I learned I used way to much and could have used about 25% less atleast.

Just made for alot of sanding.
But oh well its can still use more but I had to finish it and call it good enough.

Glad you liked it and I really love the look and how it turned out like a Fish is what I really like.

And Yes Manatee is what I thought of as I finished the green work on her.

And then the blue coloring.

Very much Manatee like.

Now some rules?
I will work on them later.
Mostly its just a ship for my Police Force.
And then I will VDR the rest.

That looks awsome GreyDeath, although I kind of liked the older design a little better, this one looks more Tauish.

Think you could get a side shot of the thing? I'm just wondering what that tail looks like on the back of it.

Awsome! Great job!

one problem though, the base looks a little small. Maybe you shoulda put it on a large flying base.....

But otherwise great job!

Its been dark and rainy all day and I cant get any new photos that done suck or are just to blurry.

But I will get all new shots of the front side and back.

And ya I need a flying base for the devilfish size but tall to mount it on I agree.

Thanks alot for the input and kind words I appreciate that alot.

;D

Sweet. Doesn't look as evil as I was expecting, but that's probably good, because Tau don't really do a good line in evil. Like the name, and the model kinda looks like a Marauder bomber (real one, not GW one).
