    Turbowars, I have finished mine and it looks great. I'm not to happy with the paint job,so I will repaint it. I don't have any pics as of yet,but will try to get some when they are finished. It was alot easier then you would think to make these. I used the hand controls from the pilots and it looks good. I have done alot of customs such as figures and my real love is making light sabers. I have gone from making plastic to metal handles. I would say I have about 40 to 50 lightsabers now. This is the first time I tried customs on a ship. Thanks again for the info and happy customs.

    Hey turbowars, your custom gun turrets look great. Can you tell me what you used to connect the custom pod to the hasbro turret's swivel arm. The other guy says an L-shaped bracket but I can't seem to find anything like that.
    Thanks, Coy

    Sure, but you can get a small "L" bracket from any hardware store. I don't like the use of that bracket anyway. It looks really cheap and fake. I used 1/8 scale RC car tie rod end. That might sound like a hard find, but any hobby shop has them. You will only need 2, but they come in a bag of 12or so. Cheap part. The part has a female thread at one end that screws to the pod and the other end has a hole to atach to the Hasbro arm. Here's a photo. Oh E-mal me for more info and photos. Turbowars@webtv.net

    Has anybody tried using the turrets from the wings? They're not exact matches, but they look close enough and in-scale with the toy itself... plus, they're pre-painted. (I'm that lazy)

    Re: Check out my custom Gunship Turrets, the way they were meant to be.

    That's more work that making new ones JT and besides you would need to buy another Gunship. Damn this thread is like 2 years old.

    Yeah, but that's all I had at the time.
