Dreadnought canopy in 1:16 scale

Hi, this is a project I've been working on for a while now. basically I took an unused dreadnought box and replicated the little guy with all dimensions 3 times as big. I used mostly plasticard and spare pats from my scratchbuild boxes (friends and family are always on the watch for interesting pieces of plastic). No GW parts this time.

The scale is approximately 1:16; if we believe that 40K is roughly 1:48.
Anyway here is a wood elf wardancer for size comparison. Perhaps a marine would serve better, but this was the first mini that came my way.

The kit also contains a few resin parts where I felt that it was needed for uniformity's sake.

I tried to replicate every small detail, even in places not examined very often.

 I'm quite proud of the back part

Right now the project is stopped because I have to finish a few minis for a local mini exchange raffle and my local Golden Gobbo entry.
After these I will continue with the legs.
At this moment I havent decided on the armament or even the chapter the dred belongs. I don't even know what I'll do with it once it is finished... I'm not the type to put things I do on doisplay back home... Many of my friends still consider me a sane person, and I like to preserve this... :-)  I may not even keep it.
Stay tuned!
