Well I'm making slow slogging process on the Malcador, with one side now given its basic scheme, it's now had a light varnish to protect it while I paint the rest of the model, then I'll come back for markings and weathering.
A couple of lessons learnt in retrospect for this kit, the sponsons and their weapons mounts are a poor fit, I could of done with a little plasti-crad insert to keep the heavy bolters/galting guns level as is they droop a little, meanwhile I should have painted the lascannon mount to completed BEFORE inserting the lascannon, I've now got a problem with paint being scratched off. These are'nt major problems but things I'll keep in mind when it comes to purchasing and building a second of these in the future.
Oh and of course as ever it seems the tracks were a pain! Oh how I loathe the Imperial Guard plastic track sprue! Of course it's easily solved in reality, I wont go over what has already been covered in this very useful Blog Article on Ultrawerke, which is well worth a read.
