[WIP] Tidewall Rampart from scratch

Post#1 » Jun 19 2017 12:02

Hello!

Due to the horrific price of Tidewall Rampart in Poland I decided to make one from scratch :D
I just started, but it doesn't look very hard to build so far. This one will be the Gunrig.

Next images soon.

I was looking online for some examples of exactly this yesterday and didn't find anything.

I am definitely looking forward to see what you make :biggrin:

I use PCV plates 1-3mm thick. Its very good material. You can bend it, but it's still hard enough. Easy to glue and what is the most important for me- you are able to carve in it with silmple tools (like i did with the lines on the floor). Aaaand it's incredibly cheap :D 1m2 of 3mm plate is about 10 euro. More than enough for couple of projects.

Next step made :D

the tower is attached to the base with the big flat magnet so it can be easily detached for transport purposes. Need to work a little bit with the tower due to too simple look. Need to add some sensors or something.
Railgun isn't that big. It just looks big on the photo :D

Commendable putting together panel and seam line heavy scenery.. does it count as scenery? It's mobile and has guns, should count as vehicles ;)

Look forward to paint work and seeing out your ideas for it :)
