OOooooo... thanks for the pic, Z. I've not seen that before. Those are some big-ass mechanical sights. That gives me some more ideas for detailing! I had some bitz for sights, but they've just been tossed in favor of something far more outlandish like this real-world example. :lol

 

And yeah, much to everyone's relief, I am just getting started on the gunz. And there's more good news. Today I realized that the cab was bumping the edges of the gunz on rotation and it occurred to me that I had pushed the bed too far forward. An easy mistake to fix and I've now got almost an additional quarter inch to pack gunz into! Woot!

 

Building hopper boxes for the mini-gunz now. I promise the next update will be visually more exciting. :biggrin

Flakka Dakka Trukk, Moar Dakka Edition...

trukk_05.jpgOkay, I'm real proud... uh chuffed... with how this turned out. Not to say that I won't add glyphage or other tidbits of detailing, but the turret and gunz are done (minus final gluing) and I'm  happy with 'em. I think they'll even pop more after paint which will bring up some of the odd details (like the fire extinguisher), although that's probably a couple weeks away (given other projects getting in the way).

:thumbs Weatherman predicts a slight chance of Dakka in the air tonight! Good stuff going on there Mad Grot. Great work on the sights. Sorry to give you more work than you already have, but  that grot carrying the blunderbuss sorta pointed down,  ( Double checking grots that I have access to there's with both hands on a wrench that would work better w/ less work.) with a little bit of work that might turn into a shovel or a broom & you could have him on the deck somewhere in a pile os spent shell casings.

Nice one, Z. I have several of those grots and have done very similar things with them like...

shovels

and sticks

Broom is a gud'n. The trick will be positioning him so he doesn't interfere with the rotation of the turret. He might have to get stuck on behind the gunners chair.

 

Now I owe you for three good suggestions on this build. :thumbs
