when building this why arent you meant to glue some bits like the assault cannon?

If you check the instructions more closely the no glue symbol is probably to tell you not to glue the gun to the mounting so that you can adjust it's elevation if you want.

because one of my friends glued his assault cannons in place pointing to the sky. it looks stupid. funny thing is he didnt know he was doing it. i laughed :D

It's useful being able to pivot the weapon to avoid line of sight issues. Plus, with a weapon destroyed result you can easily remove it.

Even better, a multi-melta.

go slowly, check the pieces fit before you apply glue, think ahead.

The Landraider crusader is a great addition to a marine army. Because it has power of the machine spirit and hurricane bolter sponsons, it can fire ALL it's weapons after moving 6 inches, even your pintle mounted multimelta, if you took it (Why wouldn't you?)

the multi melta looks totally different than mine which has a marine manning it

That has been customized. The remote aiming device for the Multi-melta is made from a spare Dreadnought arm. He did quite a nice job and thats a neat idea. But most people have the multi-melta being manned by a Marine as per the standard kit.

thanks for the help

this is the biggest thing ive ever tried to do, i know its nothing compared to things like a baneblade

its actually not much more difficult to do a baneblade, just more of the same kinds of things.

With any land raider varient it's best to prime and paint the inside first, completely. I have 3 painted now and I've always found they work much better this way. Just take your time and work in small sections. I paint the inside of the front hatch as well at this point. Then The outside main body is put together and painted. Finally all the little add ons are done one at a time. good luck

Also test fit the assault ramp door link bit, I had to trim mine up so that it worked easily.

I didn't bother with the interior on mine (I did the redeemer variant as I play Salamanders). During gameplay you'll not be able to see it much anyway, and as a hard core plastic model builder (been doing it LONG before I wargamed), I would be too tempted to superdetail the interior, add a driver/gunner's station, etc. It was just easier this way...

so they can pivot, and then be removed if destroyed. or you could glue them if you wanted...
