Re: Manta Log

What about making it so the base is removable so you can deal with that butt? The base is removable, that will not solve the problem as it will actually take up more room if I put the model on the table. The base I have is a lot smaller than the Manta itself. This person simply wanted to find an ea...

Re: Manta Log

On a side note I had a Apoc game on the weekend and used the broken Manta that this one is replacing for the first time. Overall the event was a huge amount of fun and my opponents for the most part were great people. The first two games were great, in the first one I managed to table my opponent wi...

Re: Manta Log

I managed to re-prime the bottom today as well as put the base colour on, do the shading and the edge highlights. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/002_zps5a2fd6da.jpg http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/003_zps97670ca2.jpg The blue in this picure really stands out ...

Re: Manta Log

man, I would still complain to FW and try to get another piece, then you can start an amazing ork army or have a wreck marker WIP :D This is actually one of the better casts of a Manta that I've seen. The bad ones are when the rails don't properly align. When this happens you need a heatgun on it f...

Re: Manta Log

So a tiny update today, I just finished sanding the greenstuff on the underneath of the fusalage which took a good couple of hours with 3 sanding sponges and a knife to get looking decent. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/003_zps2d3a4d56.jpg http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o63...

Re: Manta Log

So a tiny update today, I got my new airbrush but no greenstuff :( So I hit the underside of the Manta with a base coat of black primer everywhere but around the greenstuff as those areas will required more sanding and it would simply take the paint off those areas. Before I get a million comments a...

Re: Manta Log

More? chill brah, it's a Manta, not a Fire Warrior it's going to take him hours of work to even get some progress done, and if he managed to afford a Manta, he must have either saved a lot of money, or is in a well paid job right now (one which probably takes up all his time) I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE TH...

Re: Manta Log

Thanks for the thread. I was thinking about buying one but after seeing this I'll spend my money on something else. Can you post the certificate that comes with it? Yeah for the price you'd expect this kit to go together a lot better then this. As for the certificate this was probably the most disa...

Re: Manta Log

i have both the wings on now and started the greenstuffing by filling up the larger parts first. I'll have to hit them several times and then I can take the orbital sander to it to make sure it's nice and flat. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/002_zpsa4b6067e.jpg http://i1151.phot...

Re: Manta Log

So a little update here is the main body assembled and waiting to dry. I had huge problems getting the rear and the front to align. I had to put a huge amount of force on the rear to make it align and when I did so all the bindings let go and I basically had to start from scratch. A handy hint to an...

Re: Manta Log

Wtf... For a $1200+ model you would think it would line up better I agree with this While I whole heatedly agree with you I believe this is actually one of the better casts from the Manta. I've seen some where the rails are hugely not aligned which causes huge problems however I only needed 10 mins...

Re: Manta Log

So I cleaned up the nose of the Manta today and went for a dry fit only to find out how miss-cast the front section truly is. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/004_zps7342e194.jpg This is the top section when the bottom section is fully touching and you can see the considerable gap...

Re: Manta Log

wow, best of luck with this project, are you gonna paint it yourself or commission it? While my painting skills aren't super high I'm still going to paint this one myself. I tried getting a commission one before as I was working overseas and was returning home near my areas largest apoc game, howev...

Re: Manta Log

I believe sincerely, that a Manta requires more than one rods for its stand. Have you considered this as well? Yeah mate I know this and I plan to put 1 rod into this extra resin and 2 more more than likely in the wings which should be ample enough support even for this beast. I'll probably use som...

Re: Manta Log

Sorry for the slow update today however I've been busy so I managed another 6 hours today, 4 were spent painting the cockpit that had to be painted before the assembly could progress to the next stage and the other 2 were spent trying to assemble the main fuselage to the front main section. http://i...
