First time i get to review Legend Productions stuff and I tell you, this 3D stuff is very impressive. I've bought some of their stowage sets and their stuff is top notch.
With all this hoop la over 3D printing and casting, I guess Legand wanted to run in the race. Boy did they come out the gate in a sprint! This is their 3rd turret set, with their 1st and 2nd beinn the TOW turret for the MRAP and Hummer.
Real thing on top of Couger 6x6:
I would have thought that the pour blocks would have been a bear to cut off, but something about the resin they use and of course where the blocks attached to the part, made it very easy to remove them. A brand new, very sharp X-Acto knife made ease of taking of the pour blocks.
I started off choosing the .50 Cal and assembling it. I chose the M2A1 with new type flash hider, Surfire Hellfighter Heavy Gun Light, and AN/PAS-13B because it looked beefier.
You had to be carefull cutting the flas out from arounf the .50 CAL's hand grips and the hadle for Surefire light. I also had to re-drill out the holes around the barrel and the barrel mount to make them have more depth. Other than that, the machine gun went together with out problems.
Next was to put the turret walls together on top of the turret ring. Legend was clever enough to add these little "dimples" and "intentions" on their parts to match them together and glue them right. Again, the pour blocks where very easy to remove and parts easy to clean up.There was no problem with fit and no putty needed to be used.
That's it for tonight.
