Thunderhawk Gunship #1 miniature vehicle from Games Workshop

The Thunderhawk Gunship #1 from Games Workshop is an armoured combat flyer, armed with with dorsal-mounted heavy cannon, wing-mounted double-barrelled cannon on both sides, hull-mounted double-barrelled cannon on both sides.

Weapons: dorsal-mounted turbolaser, 2 pairs of hull-mounted heavy bolters, 2 pairs of wing-mounted heavy bolters

Additional weapons: 2 wing-mounted cannon (WH40K lascannon) (both sides), 2 wing-mounted missile launcher

"Originally designed for a 1997 Games Day exhibit, they were released through UK and then, in April 1998, US mail order. These extremely heavy, all-metal, models came in a felt-lined, wooden box and were individually numbered."

Dimensions: The weight of the model is ca. 9 kg. The size is ca. 2/3 of the Thunderhawk Gunship #2.

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