Since this entire thread didn't survive the rebirth of SMA I'm going to resurrect it since it's one I need to get back to .
There's evidently over 325 photos on IMGUR related to this build that were originally posted here . .... so it'll take me a few sessions to upload what makes sense ; probably light on the narration this time around :(





The original kit gun above ^ , 15 mm heavy MG .

New barrels are 1/35 examples of the German 55 mm ( Aber ) , @ 1/20 scale = ~ 32 mm
So the 4 barrel Gatling replaced with 3 barrel 32 mm rotary cannon
