The Flow’ry Meadow: Construction and a Brief History

My first hobby post on the biggest model I’ve ever built:

A good friend of mine gave me a Baneblade for Christmas, with the provision that I’d have it ready for an apocalypse battle scheduled for February.  With that in mind, I set about furiously constructing this behemoth over the Christmas Holidays.

My wife didn’t see me much over the following two weeks.  As a peace offering, I gave her the rights to christen the tank however she felt appropriate.  After much deliberation, she proposed the name that stuck.

And this is where we’re at presently, at the start of June. Central hull is layered, but not detailed. Left and right hulls need attention next!

I’ll likely provide updates to this post as further progress is made!
