CAS-3-Mod 1 Ape Rebuild

Still need to tidy up the mounting bracket for the missile pod.

And the rebuild of Espera's combat armor is almost done. I just need to tidy up the missile pod bracket that unfortunately I mucked up when sculpting it. Should get that done by end of the today. Pretty pleased with this model, especially since all the weapons are revable allowing me to change the load out.

Below Close-ups of the parts I used to make the 75mm recoilless autocannon and modelling the rocket pod mounting.

Below shows how I made the flexible ammo chute, which is also detachable for ease of painting, if nothing else.

M134 GAU-2B/A ammo chute.

And some pictures of painted weapons that link back to the weapons list I posted here.

M240LC 7.62 x 51mm GPMG

Which reminds me I must remember to revise the rules to allow the Dogs to have these built in, but the Apes don't. Along with implications for encumbrance that I thought would be cool the construction rules.

M26-AC with Mk30 GL

That's all for another week!

    1. Thank you. The idea to make the ammo belt from a piece of cable, sliced crossways was a good choice for this mech.

    1. Cool. I was doubting myself over the leaning forward pose.
