Default Baal Predator Turret

OK, I am ultra-cheap and want to have maximum variance with my tanks that I can get. This is what I came up with for the Baal Predator. The Baal predator turrets are different from the regular Predator Turrets because of the way they are put together. You have to choose what you want, either the Flamestorm cannon or the assault cannons .... until now. I will show you how I magnetized my turrets so that I can swap them out for whatever I need at the time, beats having to buy 3 more Baal's.

First clip all of the items off of the sprue and clean them up via filing or sanding or whatnot.



Now I cut and drill the posts where they actually rest in the turrets as well but you do not have to do that. What I have done is to take the two parts that sandwich the cannons and drill a hole in the middle of the "W". This is to help give the greenstuff a good point to hold onto so that it will not pull out once it is cured.


Put a little bit of greenstuff in the bottom of the two pieces then roll a small bit between your fingers and feed it through the hole you drilled. Then put a small amount on top of that to help keep the GS in there once it is cured ... oh yeah check the polarity of your magnets and put those in as well.

Now you can put them together to make sure the height is correct and let them cure. You can now interchange your Assault Cannon and Flamestorm Cannon if need be and all will be good. Hope this helps someone.

It's not very clear, you don't show how the parts firt together or how the magnets sit together.
You also didn't explain how you change the weapons, do you just put them in the hole, do you have to pull out the whole thing and pull it apart?
Also there are magnets on the side of the gun mount, what do they do? You didn't even say you put them there.

*quick edit*
I'm not actually wanting answers, but these are things you should explain clearly in your tutorial.

Here is why I did not reference the magnets on the turret.
