To start the explanation, I love the oldschool broadsides, and have an unhealthy obsession with magnets. I took the railguns from a pathfinder kit, cut off the arms and put magnets in them, took the smart missile systems from two fire warrior turrets, and put a magnet on the inside of each smart missile system. I've been using 1/8th by 1/16th inch magnets. As it turned out, the plastic of the smart missile system is exactly 1/16th of an inch thick. The drill goes through the plastic to set the magnet properly, and the inside of the SMS is just wide enough inside to fit the crisis suit arm, so the magnet has to be perfectly flush or or better, and the crisis arm has to be perfectly flush or better. This has the smart missile system showing some magnet on the outside of the plastic. I was sitting here looking at this and considering how I was going to apply this seeker missile (the one from the devilfish box) to the broadside, and it struck me. I took another magnet, this one smaller (3/32"x1/16"), and placed it on the outside of the part of the magnet showing from the smart missile system to give it a little space to sit, and then took the magnetized seeker missile and stuck it up to that smaller magnet. Viola. I'll include a selection of pictures to detail. D'ya think perhaps I should make an earth caste article for it as well?
How do you think it looks? Honestly, I think it's not too shabby. Still needs to be painted up, but this is my project table, so one step at a time.
