Well It’s only been a year!…………
Since I received this fine model from Martin. This was from one of our contests. So, here is what I have done.
Lengthened the rail bed by one third.
Scratch built a basic interior. I searched but could not find any interior photos. So this was a basic guess
Added the breach mechanism from a artillery gun.
Split and opened the turret side doors.
Now… here is where the fun begins.
I found (at enormous expense), about forty dollars, a lighting effect that emulates a welding torch. There are two light elements, a circuit board, to a nine volt battery.
One pulsates blue and the other gives out a white flash at random. I have tried to show this in a couple of photos. Still only half finished with this diorama. Wait till you see the finished product in about a month. Thanks for looking I hope you like her so far!
