This is a pretty standard pinning job. I didn't realize how soft the lighter grey resin really is until I managed to shave away one of the support posts when I was cutting an "x" into the top to guide the drill bit. Fortunately I had a piece of styrene that I could substitute for it so I cut the whole thing away after my knife slipped. The only issue is the cross section is hexagonal rather than round but I doubt anyone will notice once they are on the table.
|Six MG34s and three MG42s. Each halftrack will have three MGs; one in the main mount over the driving compartment, and one on either side.|
|With pins glued in. I'll cut these to length after I glue them to the support arms.|
|Drilled out the holes for the support arms on the left and right side. I had already drilled out and mounted the MG shield at this point.|
|Pins in place on the sides|
|And all glued up. I suspect that they side MGs will not last long in game play, but they look cool now.|
