Something Wicked This Way Comes

It's been a long time so nice I've posted, but that's mainly because over the last few months most of my hobby time has gone to working on one of the more difficult kits I've had to make. Without further ado, here is the second largest, and second most difficult kit I've ever worked on, the Vampire:

The Hemlock is included purely for scale.

I tried to use the hand painted tunes as judiciously as possible to really draw the eye in, but not make the entire plane too busy.  I was also able to hide my initials in the small panel of runes on the top side of the hull.

Prior to the release of IA11 2nd ed I had converted the centre line pulsar. Once the book came out I adapted to the appropriate upgrade, but decided I liked the conversion enough to keep it.

Scale photos. I actually made this so that it comes apart in 4 pieces. The two wings, upper hull and lower hull/cockpit all separate and come off the stand. As one of FW's older kits it was a bit daunting and tough to work with, but overall I'm happy with the final product.

Sorry it's been so long between posts, but as you can see I've been hard at work.
