dude it's a nice model but i don't know if it really qualifies as a conversion of a devilfish.

well all alterations on a model that makes it look somewhat different from how it was intended should make it qualify as a canversion. (IMHO)

i probably am wrong but the only thing that i see is the door is open on the model and the blokie has his arm in a different position am i correct?

if so the door was designed to be able to be opened most people dont cause they tended to break off.

so in itself it is a really nice model and cause the door is open it is really unusual but i don't know if it is a conversion per se.

i do however like it so im not dissing the model just the description (slightly).

no but the concept is

to have 2 engines centrally located on the top and rear of the main body box.

the other 2 engines will be lowered down nearer the bottom apex and set at upside down from how they are currently mounted.

the front wings will be removed and located where the engines normally sit.

the main gun will be mounted inside the hull with a complete strip starting where you have painted the central spine red and below where the pilot ****pit sits.

this slit will run left to right to the break in the curve.
the gap that is left will be where the gun shall be mounted and the lower gap will be sealed with plasticard.

the gunners bubble where the gun is normally be mounted shall have a tau sitting in it this will be covered with the clear dome from the immolator. and this shall be mounted centrally.

thats the plan anyway.

I'm not going to mince words here, so if you don't like constructive criticism, then please stop reading now.

I really like what you did with the firewarrior. I makes the model look a lot more dynamic and engaging.

The paint however has not been applied with patience and attention to detail. Your primer spray wasn't properly shaken until the paint was mixed and it created a very gritty surface on the vehicle. When the can says shake for two minutes, it really means shake for three minutes just to be sure that the paint is mixed thoroughly.

The rest of the paint is too thick in some area's and too thin in others (Especially the red).

Slow down, take your time and use nice even brush strokes to make sure that the paint doesn't "blob up". Red is a color that you must be extra patient with. It will take many coats of red to paint over a black surface. Attempting to put as much thick, red paint on as you can in one pass will only result in a bad looking finish.

Again, I'm not trying to insult you. I'm just hoping to give you a little technical advice to help you improve.

It looks better IRL, the pic looks a little corny. Oh, and it is dusty, you should wipe it with a damp cloth on the top before we go to the RTT.
