Turret troubles

Hey Hobbyists,

So I've been working on the 30k Deimos style turret.  Finally completed the mock up and even sealed it against permeation. 

 I had decided early on the I wanted to use a mold to minimize the work on myself.  

Unfortunately it didn't turn out as all I had was a two part epoxy putty mold maker, which unfortunately didn't keep the finer details.  I'll try again in the not so distant future and post my results.

I've also been working on this little guy for my Inq28 warband.

Happy hobbying.

30k predator turret

Hey hobbyists,

Continues to work on the OOP Rhinos.  I have always had a little think for the old predator turrets.  I've had a bit of inspiration from the Blood & Skulls industries turret.

Here is the rounded turret base.

The basic measurements were eyeballed, but seem to be about right.

Here it is, trying it out on the hull.

I'll have more for you later.

Updating OOP Rhinos

Hey Hobbyists,

A while ago a buddy of mine was getting out of the hobby.  He handed over a bunch of old Rhinos.  Since I've been working on a 30k era Ultramarines army I figured these would be a great addition.

I scraped off the old track and replaced it with Chimera tracks.  They fit perfectly and look great.

I'm trying out the fence incense burners from the imperial sector box as a stand in for the old exhaust pipes.

And I'm current working on scratch building a Deimos pattern rounded predator turret.

happy hobbying.

Another random project

So a little project I've wanted to do for a while is a leather pistol holster, but instead of guns, it's for a flask.  Looked at some finished products on the Internet, and sort of randomly delved into making this.

 I think it turned out fairly well.

Until next time.  Happy hobbying.
