All I'm looking to do is a scratch-build / scratch-finish of a single model. I have a brilliant idea for a diorama that would do this homage, but i need to get around Earnshaw's Theorem to make it physically possible... the little grey cells are working overtime :)

Now... where did i leave those magnets?
Oooh, I like it! I hope you manage to work it out!  :applause: :thumbup:

*grin* I really did write that on the bag.

In case anyone else is wondering, I had the green resin-moulded as an incentive to allow Kev to experiment with finishing it without gettin pissed off if he didn't like his idea and had already altered the only green etc. So now Kev has resin casts to mess with.

brandlin has long been the gravbike loon of the FoD so I figured he deserved a lil rewad for his, let's be polite and say 'patience' ;)

(Also I am pushing for it to not actually 'be' Grymn related any more and to shift plans for their bikes to a wheeled variety so people in the future may have 2 different bike styles to choose from)

Actually I want Kev to just stick a hot chick on it or something and sell it as a one off. Makes some use out of the work he's already done, on something that will sell and is therefore worth his time, and the bike will be finished and people could if they wanted to use it for something else. Possibly a hot sci-fi elf chick to go with the Sleiti?

Sleiti?  Space-faring pixie-fiddlers the lot of them!

Oh, and...

"Grav bike loon"?

Hmmm....

Congratulations on getting hold of one at long last dude.

For a weapon, I'd get rid of the weapon mounts on the side and build a MG into the nose/underside. I'd add air intakes onto the sides around where the weapon mounts currently are.

As for control, I'd put 4 small jet nozzles onto it; one at each bottom corner angled out a bit.

Of course that's just my ideas, I'm not so likely to get sent a cast myself to have a go on.
