    the promissed armament.....

    Hi folks,

    during the week I went forward with the armament..........
    It´s rather difficult but over all it fits well.

    Just have a look, next and nearly last step will be the six barrels of each machine gun......:roll:

    Best FLU

    Wow, FLU, those are so cool looking!:shock:
    They look like they are models all by themselves!
    They look great now but they are really going to highlight this build when they are complete and installed!
    Beautifully done, FLU!

    the missiles....

    Hi folks,

    I made a short tutorial about the missiles.

    I used toothpicks and a micro tool
    [​IMG]

    first with rough sandpaper
    [​IMG]
    then fine
    [​IMG]

    then cut it to the right lenght
    [​IMG]

    the missile heads
    [​IMG]

    and assembled to the carrier
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    the machine gun is a class of its own
    [​IMG]

    meanwhile I finished the weapons. Pics I will show tomorrow.........gallery pics.........

    best regards FLU

    The chain guns are great. I will use that idea in a model I plan to scratch build.
