I figured this is a good place for my to keep my thoughts about all my tabletop adventures. I will will keep thoughts about lists, pics of completed models and WIP, and maybe even some slimmed down battle reports.

Mek gun take 2...
I decided to give scratch building a mek gun another try. Everyone says these guys are where it is at. Especially the lobbas so here I go.
First I made a prototype from cardboard. I wanted to go with a little more angular look than my previous box look.
After that, I went to work cutting out the parts in plastic.
Here is when I ran into problems. I am using a thinner sheet of plastic. This is a different type than the last one and does not play well with the plastic glue. I think the surface might have a finish on it preventing the glue from working. I had some other glue that seems to work. I think I need to switch to some superglue but at the moment I am out.
here you see the side shields assembled and the wheel wells waiting for assembly. once they are together I can add the wheels and the rear stablizing arms. Add in a grill and some decoration and this carriage is complete.
