I acquired an old Workshop Metal Thunderhawk in 40k scale a few years ago and decided to actually build the thing. The progress got interrupted for a bit as I moved and was unable to locate one of the two boxes it had been packed in. A second move resulted in the rediscovery of both boxes so work can finally resume.
Phase 1 of Project Thunderhawk was construction, bracing, pinning, general engineering, and dry fitting of the major sub-assemblies. This has been completed.
Phase 2 is designing, testing and installing the lighting solution. This is where I am at the moment.
Phase 3 is designing, cutting, constructing, and lighting the display base.
Phase 4 is painting and final assembly. Some sub-assemblies are painted in earlier phases but will get final finishing in this phase.
Here are some shots of the end of phase 1:
