I had today off, but went off to The Hawk Conservancy today and had a very nice relaxing day there, chinese takeaway for tea and have just chilled this evening. However (and onto the subject of the post), I’ve decided that due to time constraints that neither arm will be clad with the ribbed plasti-card. Current thinking is that I’ll ‘edge’ the shoulder blocks with the plastic strip I have – perhaps thicker card on one side than the other. I am still going to do the conversion for the heavy bolter arm though.
I’ve also just won a rivet mold – basically you heat up a piece of plastic sprue and ram it into the metal mold. Then when cooled, you cut the rivet off the sprue and glue it on. Not sure how it will work, but £5 is worth a trial.
