So I decided to have a go at rotating the cockpit on my B-Wing yesterday

 

Turned out to be an arduous process of carefully sawing off the front with a craft knife.

 

Unfortunately I managed to break the Right / Bottom gun:

This forced me to take to my bits box for some replacements (I lost the part completely somehow)

 

I found some WHFB dwarf handguns to use (obviously I didn't want my guns being different) and here's how they came out.

Obviously I wish I hadn't broken it but I'm OK with the bodge fix I guess.

 

Moral of the story for me is "don't try and do any conversions!"

I busted a gun on my Bwing getting it out of the box. I've just left it broken. War wounds.

Hat off to you sir.....

 

.....I'd probably have cut off a finger, stabbed myself in the foot, and glued my hand to my face in addition to taking off a gun or two. Can just see myself now, sobbing at the sight of a ruined B-Wing miniature without sparing a thought to doing a fix-up job.

 

Good job.

Magnets would have been a good idea.
