Badger Drop Ship 7

Badger Drop Ship 7

And so it began, shortly after CAV CON 2021 ...


6 hours of assembly. It was super fun, but I love assembling things. I'm keeping the four "pods" and main hull in separate pieces, as well as keeping some of the front screens detached to allow access to internals of cockpit. Being in parts helps with painting and the cockpit access allows for lighting and windshield fun.



Primed in base colors ...



Some customization of the sensor radar on the nose, using some of the detailing card provided in the kit as well as button from the wife's sewing stash.



Panel painting and blacking out some of the deeper areas.



Custom radar bit using old IR sensor cover from some electronics and a CAV terrain gun helping round out the capabilities of this Badger. I really like the asymmetry and details these provided.


Using some of the detailing kit as a stencil to get the Rach logo on the back assault ramp. Can also see the "space dust weathering wash" I've applied here.

Good progress made the past two days. I'm getting so hyped with how it is turning out. (squeak)


Rear assault drop hatch, properly installed, and with new motto script. Those engines need work 😆!



Finished off the landing gear. Touchdown. 🛬



Combat insignia applied to launcher pods. Needs a little clean up. 🤭


Rach insignia looking fierce. 👹


Here she is getting real real close to done now. 💫


To do list ...

  • Ship name, both sides
  • Hull number, both sides
  • Engines
  • Silver highlight metal edges of launchers
  • Cleanup (stencil work, masking pull off)
  • Final glueing
  • Seal it ALLLLLlllllllllll!
  • Photo shoot, video showcase, bask in the glory while waiting for the Triumph MDF kit.
