Leman Russ magnetized

Once I figured out how much of the gun had to come of it was no problem replicating the process on all of the guns. I simply removed the squared part, that fits into the turret, slapped a magnet on it and carefully fitted the shield on top of the part of the gun that sticks out from the turret.
I also fitted magnets to all of the guns. So the guns fits nice and tight against the turret.
To make the sponson-weapons and the hull-mounted weapon stick into place a fitted magnets into the bottom of the empty sockets and glued a peice of metal to the ends of the guns. It's not a really tight fit, but it keeps them in place much better than if you just leave them unglued.
I glued the sponsons in place, I could have magnetized them but I didn't want to have the whole tank go into peices if you picked it up from the table in the wrong way...

Since I'm playing a traitor-guard army this one will have the same kind of paintjob as the Vendetta and the Sentinel that are already in the army (pictures of the vendetta and the sentinel).
Now I just need to add some more metal to the  weapons and I'm ready for the painting!

Another weekend...

Another weekend has passed. And what have I been up to? Well, I got my hands on a Leman Russ-kit last week and I spent some time building it and magnetizing it.
Pictures will be up tomorrow. But as I was building the kit some points of interrests came to mind:
First of the Leman Russ is a really easy kit to build, and that's on the plus-side. On the negative side I really can't understand why they don't put all the options for the tank into the kit..! It really ticked me off, that a need to get a "tank accessories"-sprue from GW if I want to put on a dozer-blade or add a Heavy Stubber to it.
Well ok, sure I could use plasti-card to build me a dozer-blade but I don't really have the time right now...

Well, I'm not going to take up more time with the subject. Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the magnetizing of the weapons and some thoughts on the future!
Until then, good night!
