Paul,

​I must agree with you on the resin I am not a big fan, that said the only real experience I have with it is after market accessories and figures. The advantage it does have is some of the less popular subjects are available.

Guitar string trash saves the day. Ferrule is a perfect fit around post. Added PE scrap folded to accept 20mm ammo can & walla voila, ammo will follow gun around post. The 20mm ammo can lid, feed chute, gun shield, gun, SAWs, MG ammo cans, blooper/ammo can & fire extinguisher readied. To the right is traverse limiter & sun shield frame ready for test fit once mini gun is mounted.

Steve,carrying on. Assembling/cleaning pcs for ArsenalM turtleback, some paint, test fit of potential gun shield. May go w/M2 instead of grenade launcher.

There was no provision made for elevation on the minigun so that took awhile but now functional & fitted. Test fit of cab blooper & tub SAWs. Sun shade frame will have camo netting.

Another view showing optional SAW mountings. Cab gun shield has a minimum of six parts & is giving me fits.

Another test fit. Still working upper & security hummers. Decided LAV-AD was inappropriate (too new).

"Sometimes only a TOW will do".

Can't forget to do hold down chains for tracks.

M1114 may be too new, if so will replace w/older hummer w/SAW. I've never seen a 20mm mini-gun mounted like this. I thought maybe scavenged from a downed chopper. It, the TOW & 40mms make for some effective light arty. Still working on other gunshields .

Paul,

Great work sir as always thumbs up, but even more impressed that you can manage to make sense of the build , considering those very iffy drawings / instructions star. Not sure if you have answered this before but what type of paint do you use ? plus what colour are the above ?

John.

Thank you John H.

I use Polly Scale where I can. Easy clean-up, super small pigment & great consistency through time. These are brush painted w/Polly Scale acrylic #505364 U.S. Desert Shield Sand. I think Model Master has bought them up. I don't think the # crosses over, but the quality seems to have.

PaulE
