Hey check out this model I made! It took me around 2 hours and uses Marine bits. Not quite finished painting it yet. The models next to it are a dreadnought and a regular tactical marine. I used the design layout from tactica and inserted it to my compyer, scaling it down to the size I wanted it to be. Then I printed out the plans and cut them from cardboard with an exacto knife. This is equipped with a turbolaser (on top) 2 lascannons, 4 twin-linked heavy bolters, Hellstrike missles, and the such. It can fit a rhino inside it along with a 10-man tac squad of marines. Comments?

That looks good BUT it looks pretty weak...........structure wise.

Hey thanks. I know its pretty weak being made completely from cardboard boxes. But hey, at least I saved $400.
For your next project you should really consider plasticard. It's not expensive, and the results will be much better. But nice work.
I know, it was just something random I threw together one day. Where can you get plasticard btw?
Well, the design of it is spot on, great job on that bit! The only thing is it is REALLY obviously cardboard, and it will be even when you paint it. The corrugations and warpings will be a dead givaway. Great job for the materials used, but plasticard would make it look SO much better.
Treat it as a prototype for a plastic version. You know how to go about constructing one now, so you can try with a slightly more expensive material.
Awesome, thanks for the comments guys. Its stuff like this that inspires me to do more. =)
