WIP: Avalon Cruiser

I am currently working on an Avalon Cruiser from the Battletech universe. The miniature is made by Iron Wind Metals and can be found here.  The choose to do the cruiser in a dark grey with red trim. As you can see, I just have some of the basecoat done. I plan on using a gunmetal for the engine parts and vents. For the base, I am just using 1/16 brass rod and a square base. More to come soon.

  1. I've always loved the Avalon except for one thing...which side is supposed to be the front?

    The paint looks stellar though!

  2. Yeah, I pondered that as well when I started. I assume the pointy end is the front since most guns face that way :D

  3. That's what I always figured, but I think a lot of confusion comes from the Tech manual picture where it looks like the engines are on that side.
