Skyshield Landing Pad

The Skyshield Landing Pad is a very nice piece of scenery for Warhammer 40,000.

Landing pads are launch bases used by flight-capable craft to unload or evacuate troops and vital personnel. The Skyshield landing pad used by the Imperial Navy, though originally purpose-built to accommodate Valkyrie and Vendetta gunships, is robust enough to serve even the Thunderhawks of the Adeptus Astartes, and has field generators that protect the craft and its crew from incoming fire.

A plastic kit, it contains four lots of two sprues. This is the landing pad and side walls.

This is one of the four legs.

This is a very clever piece of design. Reminiscent of the first Land Raider and Rhino.

So the first stage is to stick this altogether.
