Default 40K scale Barracuda

Just wondered if anyone here has the Forge World Barracuda model (40K scale), as I have a question on the components?

I've just got a Barracuda and found there to be an item missing which is listed on the inventory as an Escape Pod Base. Looking at the model though, the escape pod canopy fits on the main fusilage rather than where the pod base would be (inserted into a resessed hole) and it doesnt look as though it would be large enough to fit a pilot like the Tiger Shark does.

Does anyone else have the escape pod base in their model or was it maybe an idea which got pulled from the model? It just doesnt seem too feasible to me to include it.

Thanks.

Probably best to take some pictures and send an email to Forgeworld.

I've only seen one Barracuda around here, and that was by BlackLotusElite if I remember correctly, back in the days when this forum was just beginning...

I have 2, I think.

The escape pod base, there should be two components. One with a pilot inside, one without. One of these be glued to the canopy, which then simply sits in the recessed hole, and can be removed as per the escape pod rules when the model is destroyed.

Sure.* The site doesn't mention it at all, and the images only show the exterior.* Unlike the Tiger Shark, where it does mention the pilots etc.

Thanks Rafe

Hmmm, that sounds even more strange. So TWO pod bases, one with a pilot? I can't see how a pilot would fit in there, unless it was scaled down from the Tiger Shark pilot size.

Any chance you could post up an image (or email me) so i can see how it looks?

Double Post fixed ~Lonely~

Hey if it comes down to it, don't just e-mail Forgeworld...call them...a lot. They didn't give me a correct engine for my tetra and I e-mailed them a few times and they never responded.

The barracuda does indeed come with 2 escape pods. One with a pilot and one without. Possibly for model purposes.

I have one. It comes with a Ion Cannon as you can see, the two cockpits, and on the bottom of the craft there is a compartment that comes open and there are the seeker missles. Give me a message if u want a couple of pictures. The pilot is cramped in his seat so it's very uncomfortable for him.
