More Mek Gun work in progress - tracktor kannons.

These things are turning out to be a lot of work.

Sure, I've finished 5 guns for lobbas but I have not even come close to finishing the energy weapons nor even primed the other 5 chassis.. but that will be done very shortly.

The dollar store toy guns are great for smasha guns, and now I have 5 of them - need 1 more.  However I need to somehow distinguish tracktor kannons from smasha guns.  I have been taking my queues from the stock model and building a set of arms to magnetize on the barrel.

So far, so good. I like how they are coming out.  Just need to come up with a bit to stick on the ends of the arms.

I also came up with an acceptable idea for a power pack, again similar to the stock model that has a battery or whatever off to the side of the gun body.  I simply could not find the bit on ebay so I just did a press mold with instantmold and built a small box. It looks "worky" enough for my taste and will just magnetize on the side of both the smasha guns and the kustom mega-kannons once I make progress on those.  Again, I will need a total of 6 of these..

It's been very tedious work so far. I've gone one good mold to use for the battery pack so I can built at most one a day.  And I'm running out of greenstuff!

But now all the ideas for the energy weapons are in my head,  I'm going to get working on priming and painting the 5 chassis while also working on the Bloodthirster.

That's it for now.
