I would speak with an IP lawyer as any advice we give could in fact make us liable as well.


Looking super cool by the way,

So this project comes to an end, but it's been a good one.  I'm quite happy how these turned out and I hope the customer is equally enthused.  So without further ado here's the Mk1 Predator and his Mk1 Rhino brother:

The turret and sponson weapon mounts have recesses for 1/8 inch diameter magnets 1/16 inch thick, which makes it easy to swap between weapons.

So it's a simple change to go from a Destructor to an Annihilator:

The molds for the turret and sponsons and they are now in production.  Look for them in my store later in the day tomorrow.  I will also have some custom made weapons (heavy machine gun, gatling gun, and laser cannon) that are designed for this turret and sponson (along with future turrets and sponsons) that can easily be fitted with magnets.  But more on that tomorrow.

As for the Mk1 Rhino conversion kit, I have no plans to put this up in the store.  However, I should be able to get about 25 more sets out of the molds before they are retired.  So first come, first served.  Send me a PM if you're interested and get them while they last :)

OK, the Libertor Tank Turret 1 and Tank Sponson 1 sets are now available in my store!

Also new are these swappable weapons:

The Heavy Machine Gun:

The Gatling Guns:

and the Laser Cannons:

All of these weapons have recesses in their mounts for a 1/8 diameter by 1/16 inch thick magnet that makes them easily swappable with the new turrets and sponsons!

How would one of those turrets fit on a stormraven?
If Tom or anyone has a kit and the turret, I'd love to see a pic with them dry-fit together.

I have ideas for my super-raven's turret and hopefully this will play a part.



Ooh, and how would those new gatling guns fit in the SR's nose mount?

Well the turret has a 5/8 and 1 inch diameter mount underneath so as long as the Stormraven can accomidate that it should fit just fine.

As for the gatling guns, the base is 0.25x0.5 inches.  I think that's a little big for the nose mount but you can always cut the guns off the mount and use them that way.  They're about 0.25 inches in diameter.

Hope this helps!

The way I'm building it, it will definitely accommodate! You have an order coming your way!
