Drop Pod

Post  Matthew G on Mon Jun 16, 2014 8:27 am

Hey all.
My June contribution will be to finish off my Drop Pod.

I got this thing from a buddy and it was only like a 1/3rd assembeled (if that). I had assembled it in 2 halves so I could prime the inside black, and the outside white. I tell you, reassembling the two halves of the pod were very difficult, much bending, prying, and pushing but I did manage to unite the two halves.
Before I did that though I had painted the interior of the pod as it made it SO much easier to when it was open.

Regardless, after I pushed the two sides together I just left the pod.

I am hoping that I can use this pod as my entry into the competition.

good stuff; looks like you figured out your red for the big panels nicely. i like how you did your blood drop too, makes you think its actually curved instead of the flat symbol from the kit.

Yeah.
Though I really started getting lazy with the edge shading. Out of everything I had to paint thus far, I think this pod is up there in my least liked/enjoyed..... And it's not even done yet.
I thought it was done until I was looking through the final pictures I took and saw some glaring imperfections, mainly some cleaning up around my blood drops, and some details on the storm bolter inside. Otherwise it's done enough. I also wanted to magnetize the doors, but I fear it's too late. The dang thing doesn't fit well together, and I don't know if magnets on the doors would help it actually keep the doors closed. I'd need some hefty magnets, the wee ones wont cut it I think.

My death company drop pod has to be done next, though that one is more black so should be a bit easier to flub.

I'll be cleaning this pod up tonight then and will get final pictures posted later this week for my entry this month.

Use a 1/8" magnet. I used one pair on each door and it's strong enough to keep them in place

Debating if I should waste my time drilling them in, or just mount them right to the door.... I'm so over this Pod now it's not even funny...

If you already have the bit/magnet they are one of the easiest things to do. The only time I find them irritating is if I need a weird sized magnet or can't find a good spot to drill into for mounting.
