Hi all !
WARNING : THE FILES LOOK A BIT SMALL. ALL STL SHOULD BE PRINTED AT 120% SCALE FOR A BETTER SIZE
I have been looking for a proxy for a long time and decided to make my own :
Here is the final version of my proxy : I called it BlastHook
It was modelled all freehand, only based on pictures. It still has some differences. Nearly everything was designed with Meshmixer. I borrowed some parts here and there (engine intake, missile launchers, space marine...)
It should be correctly scaled for 28mm, as I placed a 28mm soldier inside.
- Engines can rotate vertically
- Front autocannon can rotate horizontally
- Side weapons could be changed, if necessary
- I modelled a cockpit internal detail, with a 2nd ed Space marine inside (thx Garin).
- And the tail has a retractable landing pad inside
- A 6mm hole under the main hull, for a base
All in all, it is pretty easy to print, some parts need supports (only from print bed). Choose orientations wisely.
Assembly is really straightforward; on the body assembly i included some square locating pins that will help position parts together.
The canopy is tricky to print, I made mine by printing the part unfold; fold the different faces, and glue on small spots. It needs some transparent plastic sheet to have a glass effect.
Sorry for the heavy files, I am not very efficient with meshmixer, and meshes tend to be very dense.
I had a great time working on this Gunship, the result is worth the time spent on it.
