Dropzone: Building The Avenger

Avenger build

David Lewis from Hawk Wargames takes us through the process of building a Dropfleet Strike Cruiser in Dropzone Scale…Have you ever wanted to complete a project that was so completely bonkers that you’d probably go a little mad trying to complete it? Well David Lewis, one of the Masterminds behind Dropzone and Dropfleet Commander has constructed a hobbyist’s dream project: a 3 METER long Dropzone scale Avenger Strike Cruiser. And he’s documented the process. Check out the first two videos here:

Welcome back to the Building the Avenger Project series where we will be following David Lewis from Hawk Wargames’s Journey on the epic build that is the 3 metre long Avenger.

 

This project is massive – there are over 4000 parts that need to be assembled. That’s not including all the design work on the back end that had to be completed. David also rigged up some lights and fully painted the Avenger as well. Oh and don’t forget the “Payload” of this Strike Cruiser…

Here’s a couple of shots of just PARTS of the completed model:

We’re going to be checking back in weekly for this video-log of the project. Simply amazing!

    Not for sale? Well part of me thinks “Yeah, that’s probably for the best.” The other part of me thinks “BUT I WANT ONE!”

    Pretty cool, thanks for sharing!

    Well I guess now we know what he has been doing instead of making sure his Kickstarter supporters who made Dropfleet Commander possible get their models. I got mine a week or so ago (about 4 months after retail) and there are still people waiting. Not to mention people who got some of their stuff and are waiting for important missing items such as flight stands. Also, there has been little to no communication with people trying to get an answer as to when their stuff will arrive.

    Yes, it is a cool project. However, until ALL of the Kickstarter backers have all their stuff, Dave posting this comes across as just more evidence that the backers are his last priority.

      he did this back in 2014. the model was finished before the announcement of dropfleet. It’s literally in the first few minutes of the video.
