Title: Remote control machine gun
Post by: U-33 on October 21, 2014, 11:56:08 AM
Faced with a long wait for parts to arrive for my Akula conversion, I thought I'd have a go at something different...a remote controlled machine gun. I had a 1/3rd scale Williams Bros Spandau machine gun kit, and the Snow Cat chassis, so I decided to marry the two together and see what it came out like.


The gun kit is a right s*d to assemble, but it's getting there slowly, and begins to look half decent. Pics show a couple of full sized ones, and a dry run of how far I've got with mine.


The gun will rotate when I've done with it, and the vehicle itself will have an operating searchlight, a magnetic grab arm, and a operating winch run from a Turnigy electronic switcher.
