I've managed to squeeze in two little conversion projects into my schedule here recently. One yesterday, and the other a few days before my birthday trip. Both are relatively simple and small, but that's all I have time for right now. I miss the extensive hobby time I had prior to when everything decided to happen on each and every weekend of this month!
Speaking of size issues, scale has always been out of whack in this game, however that works in this case, as I trimmed down a 75 ton Typhoon to use as a 60 ton Tokugawa. I had Tokugawas years ago, and wanted them again. However they went out of production in 2005, and don't exist on ebay or any other web-stores aside from a special order from Iron Wind Metals. Set up fee + cost of the blister + the minimum $10 in shipping would run me $30 for a blister pack.
Um...no. What is this 40k?
Thus the Typhoon met the clippers, exacto blade and Dremel, and now makes for a reasonable facsimile of the real thing. In hindsight, I ought to have removed the two coaxial pulse lasers on the turret. However there is a Tokugawa variant that has a small pulse laser, so I guess mine just has an odd twin-barreled variant of that weapon...
