Thunderhawk Gunship #3 miniature vehicle from Games Workshop (Forge World)

The Thunderhawk Gunship #3 from Games Workshop (Forge World) is an armoured combat flyer, armed with dorsal-mounted heavy cannon, hull-mounted cannon on both sides, 3 wing-mounted missile pylons on both sides, wing-mounted double-barrelled cannon on both sides, hull-mounted double-barrelled cannon on both sides.

Weapons: dorsal-mounted turbolaser, 2 lascannon, 6 sets of wing-mounted missile pylons and numerous hull-mounted heavy bolters

"Particular care and attention has been paid to the power systems of this craft, with intakes, exhausts, air brakes and retrothrusters all where you would expect them to be. The attack wings, which each feature a heavy bolter turret, can be moved into either a stowed or attacking position, and the air brakes can be left open or closed. The front ramp can be opened and closed to disgorge the Thunderhawk’s cargo of Space Marines; of course, each of these movable components can be glued in the position of your preference. A pilot is included, who can easily be painted in the colours of your preferred Chapter.  This is a rather large resin kit, which comes as 112 components."

This version of the Thunderhawk Gunship comes with several updated components:

  • Transparent cockpit window
  • The heavy bolters on the sides of the cockpit are mounted vertically instead of horizontally
  • No horizontal stabiliser on the tail fin
  • The wings are pointing downward instead of being horizontal
  • The side hatch is different
  • The fuselage is different
  • Airbrakes
  • Lift jets on the underside

Dimensions: I suppose this version is similar in size to Thunderhawk Gunship #2.

Dimensions (Thunderhawk Gunship #2): 480mm long / 440mm wide. The model is ca. 200mm high from landing gear to top of the turret, the hull is ca. 125mm wide,
