Hi Chris (and the rest)

My first Thunderhawk much like the one that yu describe. You need a rhino,
a land raider and an infantry base.

You cut about 5mm off the front of the landraider, glue the rhino in place
and cut the infantry base in half.

Trim the front edge of the base halves to the correct angle for THawk wings
and glue in place under the landraider treads.

Add six pencil leads from the right sort of pencil as "missiles" underwing,
add a turret, and you have a THawk made from the excess plastic bits you
didn't know what to do with...

Since it's made from mostly GW stuff, you could even use it at touraments
under the "customising" provisions (maybe...)
