    Ok guys, now that we've shaken some things off just a bit, how about we give one of our newest Radicons another chance at getting some feedback/comments.

    Hmm, not bad. I await the day you will be able to sell your casts, i wasted my only Heavyarms kit and could do with a few more of those guns.

    Also, certainly feels a lot more like a War For Cybertron, now that he has huge guns. :)

    from what I can see the casts look very clean. Can you remove them and show how you modded the pegs, and attached the barrels to each other?

    Very nice, those guns are great for so many things, but like someone said, you only get so many with any kit.

    It does suck to get a kit just for the guns, casts would be nice.

    hers what i did

    thanks for all the help you guys so im going to share my methods. first what i did was fit a old transformers gun in the socket of wfc prime. then i filed down a heavy arms gumdam gun. then i took the peg off of the transformers gun. i did it with this method i call it hot knife cutting. this is when you put a butter knife on a stove let it get red hot and it cuts plastic like butter. after i hot knife the peg from the gun i simply super glued it to the gundam gun then casted it. i used alumlite casting supplies for the mold and resin i encourage you all to try its easier then you think. if i can do it anyone can. you guys should check it out at alumilite.com they have all the supplies you need to do all your own casting projects even how to do videos on the site. the first picture shows the mold and three guns. the middle is the original the two sides was casted. the last show a few other molds its real easy i think you guys should check it out thanks again.

    Makes me want to get off my but and pour rubber on those HAC gatlin sets I already have sprued and boxed. Can we see more shots of how the guns attach to the back of the bot.

    Everyone makes mistakes; that's why God put rubber on the ends of pencils :) 

    Also, many thanks to you for sharing your methods with us. Your post is very informative. :thumb 

    As others have said, I hope we see more from you :)

    I don't know exactly where to find one, since decepticon1976 gave me one, but they actually make hot knives. Basically it's a soldering iron where you can swap out the actual iron tip for an exacto blade. you do the swap, plug it in, wait a few, and bam! the hot knife comes with the blade extension, and you can replace the blade with any exacto blade. i would look for one, as it is a little more controlled than the stove method, and therefore a little more safe too! good work on those casts!!

    You can get those at Lowes or Home Depot, they are rather cheap and have several attachments. It is basically a sodering iron with a screw to adjust to which attachment you want.

    Nice casts BTW!
