Tau Tiger Shark Project Started

I started on my Forge World Tau Tiger Shark AX-1-0 super heavy flier. I decided to play my Tau for the upcoming "Eden" campaign starting this week at Gamer's Sanctuary. The campaign will be running for some time, but I wanted to get started on this project now so it is available to use in the apocalypse finale.

Like most Forgeworld kits, there is a lot of preparation work to do. I spent the time today just cutting off the excess resin and filing the surfaces down. I wore a mask just to be safe, but this kit is pretty good and there really wasn't a lot of sanding.

I washed the parts with water with a bit of bleach added to get the resin dust off. Next up, I need to figure out what kind of flight stand to construct. I made a simple single stand for my Barracuda. However, I think this larger bomber will need two, maybe three stands. I have seen a few articles online on the different stands people have come up with. Stay tuned for more updates!
