Here's some pics of my latest models, including the stunningly weighty Andrayada Cor Battleship - the heaviest single mini I own in this sort of scale and a good proxie for things like Tau Manta no doubt. And the Kraytonian Aryx, also a big model though much lighter due to the design.

With Commissar in attendance to give idea of scale as per L4 tradition...

All the pieces unassembled...

Note the big metal flight stand to take the weight of the Andrayada Cor Battleship. Good thing too as I'm sure a plastic stand would snap almost instantly...

Aryx - the two big metal flaps are the hatches that go on underside of cargo pod.

And with pieces placed loosely together. Cor Battleship actually has extra intakes added to wings compared to shop display model - which must have been an earlier prototype I guess. On top of them I've placed the missile racks here, which are actually supposed to go under the wings, but I'm thinking about putting them on top somewhere perhaps...

Apparently I gave birth to a rather large baby there. :-)

Aye, it's been a while but IIRC there was an early pre-production model that was put into brief production in order to make it on sale for that year's SALUTE convention, and a later model with a bit more detail.

The base design also changed at some point from a single element to a 2-part base that was easier to cast.

Ah interesting! Thanks for the intel E&C, looks like I might end up owning more than a few of your designs as time progresses... :D
