Here is another small project that happened between other things. I had two Earthshaker Platforms and I wanted one to be a Medusa Siege Gun. I had seen similar conversions on the net so I gave it a crack with some personal touches. I find it really useful seeing how other people attempt different conversions, so in that spirit here is a walk through of my conversion.
My Earthshaker gun (from a Basilisk kit).
I have the cool Forge World extended breech, which they no longer make.
My supplies: cardboard tube, strip of plastic, sides of a Valkyrie Multiple Rocket Pod, Warhammer Fantasy Mortar, pipe from Manufactorum building set. You don't 'need' all of these but this is what I have used.
Cut the Barrel.
Cut the cardboard tube.
(I didn't cut my thumb on my hobby knife but gashed it at work on a staple of all things!)
Two strips of plastic for detail.
Fits in place well.
Here I am measuring to see how much wider my shield opening needs to be.
Opening cut wider with a dremel.
Sitting in place.
Cut the end off the Manufactorum pipe.
Cut the Warhammer mortar.
Put is all together! [tacked in place]
Next to my Earthshaker.
Green stuff the joins after gluing.
And done ready to paint.
Too easy mate!
