So after using part of the GW Eldar Jetbike front piece, I realized it was still too low for my standing models to be hidden/protected properly and it would need a raised area for the computer to sit. To do this I took another Jetbike front piece and trimmed it to angle upward. I also decided to add the back portion to help support my later green stuff efforts to build the side and rear walls.

At this point I began adding the green stuff, starting at the front and adding the sides of the vehicle. I also used the putty to fill the area where the computer panel will later be placed.
Here we see a placement of a Warlock into the jetbike to ensure the size is appropriate. I've also tested the other Warlock models to ensure they can stand in the round cockpit without problems later. At this point I'm concerned it looks way too much like a shoe. Beware my giant skimming footwear and their riders.
Here we can see the walls have been thickened and less of a round thin wall look is where I have decided to go design-wise.
Taking a break from adding to the upper portion of the vehicle, I've begun working on the underside. Definition will be added at a later point, along with thrusters and weapons.
Well, that's where I'm at right now. I'm hoping to have another update this week where the computer panel is completed and the underside has some added details.
I hope you're enjoying the process so far and let me know what you would do differently.
