FINALLY! The Gorgon.
This kit has been the hardest thing so far that I've built from ForgeWorld, the Cab section had to be shaved, heated up and bent back into shape, the floor was bent out of shape and I will have to green stuff some areas that need it. I'm starting to enjoy the kit now that the Cab section has been completed.
To start with I Painted and built the inside cab and the area below that leads to the rear ramp, I've also magnatized the rear ramp.
I then decided that I would Magnatize the heavy stubbors up top also.
I also Magnatized the side weapons too because I wanted to be able to use both options.
Ive only bult the rear Cab and gun sections so far, this weekend I will add the left hand side and begin sanding down Green stuff and making sure everything is aligned correctly.
Man, everytime I open up your thread my wallet starts hurting. There is a GW 10 minutes down the road that sells forgeworld and youre making it increasingly hard to resist. Stop it. Stop painting these awesomely expensive models so damn well so I can resist.

Thank you gents, you're really keeping me motivated on this project.
I had saved and put Money aside for this beast over a year ago, in the hope that they would re-produce the Gorgon, so I'm not splashing the cash trust me.
This kit doesn't build easy, I've spent more time with the Hair dryer just straightening and tweaking parts than I have building. The Magnets took a good amount of time to align correctly, as you really don't want to mess it up.
This weekend, I've primered some parts and I'm finally ready for some paint!
@jud: Yea sure, I'll do a comparison with a range of tanks for you guys to see.
Dang man that transport looks like a real pain. Can't wait to see it done tho.
I am the one, camouflage and guns risk my life to keep my people from harm. Authority vested in me I sacrifice with my brothers in arms. Stay the course, reasonable force I believe I serve a greater good. Smoke and dust, enemies are crushed nothing left, where a man once stood. Locked and loaded voices screaming, let's go, come on do it, here we go.

Taking a small break from the Sisters to work on the beast.
I'm just going to get the moaning out the way now. This FW kit is the worst I have ever built, Nothing fits, not even close. It's all bent out of shape, doesn't quite fit here and there. Just checking, checking everything 3-4 times just keep checking.
The kit looks really good now that it's mostly built and it's becoming a joy to paint. The front ramp is dry fit along with the crew. The best thing I ever did was magnitizing the ramp doors and the weapon options, really smooth open and close and the side sponsons stay on just fine.
Side Sponsons: The different options will be magnatized (I'll share the options in the final pictures)
Over all at the moment I'm happy and this week I shall battle on with the Gorgon.
