In Topic: 1/48 Launch Arm for upcoming Hase Kits

The receiving unit of the launch arm is threaded,  so mounting the valk is just a matter of "tightening" the bolt into the threaded receiver.

You will be able to incrementally check the height/position of the valk by temporary mounting the boosters.  They don't need to be permanently attached at this point.

 

In fact it is very important NOT to mount the boosters permanently until the valk is in the correct position.  You will not be able to get the boosters under the launch arm correctly otherwise.

Forgot to mention,  you can change the angle of the launch arm in relation to the base by trimming the "mount"  to the angle you want.  It comes fully extended,  but a trim will change the angle.

The great thing about the 1/48 kit is that it's set up component wise in a way that is pretty friendly to the launch arm.  When mounting the valk, you only need this assembly to mount onto the launch arm,  the rest will be added on later.

Just got the weapons set today so i will be looking to finish this very soon.   I actually needed to finish up the monster run to make time to cast these as well,  only 2 or 3 more of those need to ship so hope to have time very soon.

 

thanks
