well, i decided to convert myself a reaper(forgeworld kit) from an old eldar raider. Now I'm not of those super talented guys who can completely replicate a forgeworld kit from sheet styrene, but I figured I could at least make mine look it does the same thing.

I added some extra armor on the side of the engine with plasticard and greenstuff. the weapon is Razorwing missile turned backwards.

Great use of the old kit!
You have done well, in my opinion. I think that the nose would also be great converted into the nose of a Reaver.

The Razorwing Missile for the cannon is cool! Very Happy

If I ever get around to making an Agis defense line, I might have to use the missiles as the autocannon as well.

I don't think anyone would mind me having a triple barreled AA gun.

That's a great conversion Darwin, a very cool-looking vehicle you have created. Very sleek!

I might suggest that you add some wiring or other gubbinz inside the hull area to represent the large power generator for the gun, but it already looks good the way it is.

Well done!

PS - make sure you post it in the Aphotic Gallery!

actually, I didn't even have the original rider or anything, so I had to really convert a reaver jetbike and rider to be the pilot.

so the reaver jetbike extends from the engine to the tip, but when I added in the pilot shield, that made it so you couldn't really see it anymore.

I'll try to take a picture from another angle to give you an idea.

P.S
