Sentinel Stand In 3

I think I finally have this first Sentinel Copter where I want it. Work should progress quicker with the next two since I made all my flubs and tests on this one. I still am unsure about the length of the rotor blades but they will suffice for now.

I will be starting on a 2nd squad of these at a later date. Here's pics...

I've finally added the pilot and some more little bits
to make it look as Imperial as possible.

I sawed off the slightest bit of the rotor arm so it
sits level now over the cockpit.

Some plastic from a blister was scrounged to serve as a windshield.

And, in the interest of flexibility, I took the time to
magnetize the weapon options.

I think the final thing I need to add is a healthy dose of rivets, which will happen as soon as I get my rivet tool in the mail. That will be followed by a final clean-up and then it's off to paint.

Of course, C&C is welcomed and appreciated.

The war goes on,

Excellent mate, now all you need is Ride of the Valkyries on your ipod! Actually, they'd be a great addition to an airborne force.

Keep up the good work,

The windscreen was a nice touch.
