    Three plates would make up the armor. on the outside edge i would put "C" or "L" Plata tubing and then on the top of the second and third a round solid piece of plata. Then cap off the bottom of each armor plate and then the second and third could "slide" up and down the grove or channel created by the plata tubing. Sort of a rail system.


    They would stack on top of each other the bottom might be the biggest (most likely) or the top will be the biggest. Might make more sence to have the biggest on the bottom, That would give the foot rom to move under the armor.



    This shows what I was talking about...well sort of. The solid bars would slide on the inside of each armor part, and I would have to make a "Stopper" at the bottom of each plate so they would only slide down so far. But gravity would keep the armor down and that would give the freedom of movement and protection at the same time.





    Crap, one more Mod to do. damn I have to stop thinking of stuff that I could do with him.. Such a good problem.

    Plus a type of "Hinge" to connect the armor to the leg so they can move with the foot and leg. I'm thinking another peg and grove system for that as well.

    Took a break from the GM\GM and went back to the Yamato.
    So far these new railings look loads better than the other ones and I can make them even without forcing them and bending them all up.
    Next step is to add the Railings themselves, 0.1 MM wire is a bit touchy to work with but as long as I go slow it will go fine.

    I did do one thing to help keep them all the same. I measured them out, then put down masking tape and marked the spots. Now I have a template for the other turrets so the railings will match up with each other.

    Trust me I know. Two sets of magnifying glasses and still it is hard to see just what I'm really doing at times.

    Yes they are so tiny, but so worth it. These are so much better than the other ones.

    Here they are with most of the railings in place. I still need to add the ladders as well. But I'm at a stand still, my 0.3 drill bit broke yet again. Now I will not get the shipment of new ones until Monday so I will have to wait till then to finish the railings.

    That is definitely going to keep you busy for a while GM. It's going to be well worth it.

    Well first primer is down and the railings are all on. Now for a bit of touch up and clean up so I can have them ready for paint.











    Yes the top or “Deck” of the turrets looks gritty, but that was planned for. I do have to sand them a touch and tone them down. But I was going for the actual “Grit paint” or traction paint that was used for footing on the wet surfaces of Battleships.
    That and there are spots that the primer “clumped” on the wire, so will have to clean those spots up. I also have to sand some of the glue spots that now show up after the primer was put down.

    Yup, considering it's size, I think it will come up fine once you do ya pre-paint sand and then paint. LOL I'm struggling with decals on my Qan[t]. I'd be stuffed trying to do detail that small.

    The PE is going to make the ship look massive, great work so far.

    But it sounded so easy in my head! I'm committed now, no turning back. But the further I get the better it is starting to look. Soon I will start adding the extra plastic sheets of scratch made detail parts. So much fun!

    Re: Monkeys Garage

    I have 2 more shades of grey to go on but I will also be putting on a bit of blue for camouflage effect. Then top coat and decals. By goodness I'm making headway!!

    Now I'm printing out a bunch of black and white versions of the pictures so I can mark where I want to put the markings so I can have a game plan and not just wing it.
