Dystopian Wars: Icarus Flyers Pt.1

Hi everyone,

This is the last stretch of my first New Year's resolution to finish up my COA force for Dystopian Wars.  I will not go into detail with these two posts as the techniques used are the same as my other COA entries.  So without further ado, let us start.

My fist job was to attach the DZC flight widgets to the models.  Like the Ptolemys, they offer very sturdy hold and easy dissembling for transportation.
Unlike most of my COA models, the Icarus was not a very good cast.  It suffered the same problems as my Daedalus.  The pic directly below shows the unevenness of the cast along the ridge, near the engines.
The solution was to file it down and add strips of styrene to them.  This had a double effect of covering up the filing and adding more detail to the model - a win/win situation.

The next step is the painting.  This is done like all the other units I have painted so far.  A black undercoat, followed by the base colour.

I will cover the next steps in a few days when I will bring this line of posts to a conclusion - for now!

Until then, farewell and good health.
