Warhammer 40K Thunderhawk by Dented-Rick
Warhammer 40K Thunderhawk
Made of Paper and Glue, scaled down, printed 4 pages per sheet

(I apologize for taking so long with this build, but I struggled over the last year with Real World situations, and my physical therapy to restore motor functions to my hand.  thank you for your patience)
For the last year, give or take a month, I have focused primarily on building Warhammer 40K themed projects.  The main source of my Patterns is Eli Patoroch, But I have a few from SSE2009, and Dart Rabbit.  These guys are awesome with their creativity.  Lately though, I have begun to wonder if this is my niche.  A Fantasy Tank maker.  Aside from a few projects, all of which were easy builds, everything Ive built for the last year has been Warhammer 40K.  I find the patterns, SHrink them even further, and build even smaller versions of them.  that's been the routine. 

Dont get me wrong, I vastly enjoy doing this, which is why I continue.  How many people can say they have an Army of Tanks on their shelves, ready to take on the Paper Armies of the world?   I just wonder if im getting myself typecast, so to speak.

Doesnt really matter, i suppose, Ill continue building Tanks, with an occasional something-or-other.

Dont mind the ramblings of an old man trying to keep nimble fingers ;)

Hello rick,  I have not been to your deviant site but I check on your builds frequently over at Zealot and papermodelers.  Over there and at dakkadakka, my avatar is silveroxide, so I know that you are familiar with my works as well as I am with yours.  Recently I am working on a paper craft space marine but in a larger scale and making the templates for it.   I admire your nimble fingers and when I was way younger, my favorite scale was 1/72, where I could paint the eyeballs on those small figures as well as stripes and other micro stuff.  Age makes a difference and I have a hard time working with my big magnifier.  Keep up your works and see you around the forums.
