Custom Gunship turrets
« on: November 11, 2008, 07:03:16 PM »

I made these a long time ago, but was trying to expalin to someone what they were, so i though I would just post the link again incase someone wants to try to make there own

There are some photos and a link with instructions on the bottom of this page http://www.dgm-laminating.com/koda/

BTW ignore the collection pics they are realy old and things have changed alot over the years , things are less cluttered :speechless-smiley-004:

I thought I would add, that "back then" we didn't have many clones to choose from, but now there are tons you can use instead of using the pilots.


This is an actual pic with the turrets on one of my gunships

I remember seeing that project posted elsewhere - was someone actually selling sets of those a few years ago?

Regardless - the difference between those and the ones that came with the Clone Pilot is just amazing. The look perfect.

Yes, someone over at another site said that they were being sold for $25 + shipping I think.  But that was a long time ago so not sure if it's still happening.

I'm hopeful that Hasbro's announcement of a battlepack with a turret means we'll soon be able to buy these right off the shelf.

When I originally made them back in 2002 , the pictures ended up getting posted rebelscum and other sites  , I was bombarded with emails from around the world asking how they were made ( reason for the guide) and if I would make them to sell. It doesn't suprise me someone out there is selling them, there was definetly a market for them. One problem I had was finding clone pilots to use the the gunship mounts that came with them and my lack of free time.

Hasbro is on their 4th gunship now and still no deluxe clone turret pack  :speechless-smiley-004:

Basically you can probably put them together with loose parts and accessories you have around from other toy lines. I did mine one night after work, so it doesn't take long. One thing to remember is not to paint them to realistic or they will not match the toy gunship , unless you do a " dirty" custom gunship
