Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

Hanger 18; Death From Above - Prep

There is a 54mm Challenge going on in the Reaper forums. I though it would be a good time to work on one of my minis from the Hanger 18 Bawidamann kickstarter. Just looking at how things go together I think the is the simplest of the three models.

I pulled it out today to start the prep and do a test fit, I'm quite pleased with this one so far. The mold lines were very light and easily removed. I press fit everything together and it looks like there are going to be some seams that will need a little putty work but nothing significant. There are no bubbles or pockmarks in the resin either.

I was going to put her together today but my bottle of super glue seems to have disappeared.

The contents of the bubblewrap pouch minus the clear plastic flight stand.

These pieces were loose and are all cleaned up

Pieces removed from the sprue. I didn't clip them to close to the sprue. I prefer to do the final clean up with a knife or a file.

A little poster tack just to see how she is going to fit together

The 3D render


  1. I really liked those when I saw them, but at the time of the KS I couldn't afford to get in. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one paints up for you. She's a real beauty.

    1. I love this style of bomber nose pinup and she is a classic. I'm hoping to get her assembled and primed tonight and get some paint on her as quickly as possible.

  2. Looking forward to see what you do with this one.

    1. If it comes out badly I'll just strip it and try again!
