I have no idea how many posts will be in this series but I figure its best to start with the basics. So here is what I know I used.
-two different sizes of plastic pipes ( never measured them found ones I liked the size of and ran with it)
-green stuff and other similar products
- some rectangular sticks of plastic card (no idea on the proper name for these)
-A4 sheet of fine wire mesh
-the following two model kits
The M-12 155mm Gun Motor Carriage kit could probably have been used not only to build the whole kit itself but even has a gun barrel in it that seems to match up well with the GW basilisk. The only thing I am not sure on is the size of the tank since I don't have a single chimera chasi vehicle and have never owned one. So cant really guess the size of it. Originally I was going to use them alone to make everything but decided against it after looking at the overall size. I did however use a lot of accessories from this box for making the earth shaker look a little more realistic. One of these I was given I bought the other two for about $20. They are a usefull addition non the less to my bits box for future projects.
In part 2 I will start with the basic construction. That should be out in the next few days.
