So, what did I get?
Well, a space freighter (338C) which I got just cause I want to paint one. I like painting merchants of any sort of game really. Good for scenarios.
(size reference is a 20mm Elhiem contractor sniper)
Casting is ok, both containers show a light mouldline and both have a bit of a hole in the same spot at the end, and one of them has a hole on the opposite side as well. Nothing that can't be fixed with some filler and sanding. I think you could use it as is without the engine pod, cause the back end looks good enough to paint as an exhaust. The engine pod I've never seen before (this is a newer model) but as soon as I had it in my hands it reminded me of some sort of sensor pod, mounted on a tank, to scan 360 degrees for threats. I just testfitted it to my Jagdpanzer 120mm Kanone to see if it works and it is a tad large but it feels alright. Gives me something to command the deck gun with, so I think this is a go. I'll ask Jon if it is available as a seperate part, else I will just order up more merchants next time.
Next is the Hornet Drone (fan type) V15-108 and showing the size against a 15 and a 20mm fig
Last is the sole reason for the order, the new Bulldog lift fans. Slighlty larger then I was expecting (which is odd as Jon supplied me with exact measurments) it seems I will not need 6 of these fans per APC but can stick with 4 per vehicle (keeping down costs is my motto). They are a special cast item, not normally available unless you ask for them, as goes for the tri track units.
And there you have it. A well cast, speedy order with great service from GZG. What more can a gamer ask for?
Now to finish up my Old Crow order ( got a voucher/email for free shipping and I can use some additional turrets and barrels for this project) and send off a email to Magister Militium for their Crisis deadline and how to order for that (I've noticed many shops don't have the option Pick Up so I tend to email them in advance if I have to make a order in the system or as a text in a email).
Edit: a reply from Jon within 10 minutes (and it is after midnight here), saying more engine bits is not a problem, and he'd like a picture of the pod problem, which I have just sent him (and I mentioned again it is not that big an issue)
