Right well I started on another magnet project the other day and it is now almost finished. it just needs a little touching up here and there with greenstuff:
I started by working out how to have the front hull mounted weapon swappable. This was a little different then others as there is nothing on the other side to stick a magnet to. So what I did was glue two pieces of sprue either side of the hole and then put a piece of plasticard across. This allowed me to glue a magnet to it to hole the weapon in place:
Next up was the turret, pretty simple this one. I just drilled a hole in the back of the weapon slot to mount the magnet in. The same was done with the back of each of the turret weapons:
Still on the turret the next step was to make the pintle mounted weapon changeable. This was done by cutting the top of the pintle off and gluing a magnet to it as well as inside each of the weapons:
All in all this enables me to swap the all of the weapons around to make any of the combinations:
Also seeing as it is me I decided to make the back panel magnetised so I could swap it out for the following command module:
Any questions or comments I would love to hear them!
