SRM 2 bit for kitbashing Primitive Wasps
« on: 18 August 2017, 12:45:23 »
Anybody have thoughts about what bits to use to add an SRM 2 to a primitive wasp?

Lore wise, these would represent a one handed version of the more modern wasp, derived from refits of primitive wasps, early production models, and third party copies of those production models.

Reality wise, it's a way for me to bulk up my Wasp corps while we wait for the lawsuit to resolve. Once they're available again, I intend to get a bunch more "proper" Wasps to attain at least a fifty/fifty split.

Iron Wind Metals' scrapyard doesn't have a lot of pictures for me to work from.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Perhaps the SRM bit from a Blue Flame? As a bonus, I believe there's a variant with no missiles, so kitbashing a Flame into that nets you three missile pods for your Wasps. :)

Maybe contact ironwind and see if you can get the SRM 2 from the nuseen Wasp that was pulled.

The top bit from a Pariah works pretty well.

You might consider using  the SRM2 launcher from the new classic Shadow Hawk Mini.

The BLF-40 is indeed SRM-2-free

how about the Fireball Weapons Sprue? from the scrapyard.
it should have a SRM2 in a pod, and a laser?

Have you thought of just making your own out of brass tubing? For a $3-$4 initial expense you would probably have enough to outfit a battalion or more, or if that isn't your plan, it comes in handy for a lot of other projects.

At present I'm leaning towards using fireball parts. Thanks all for input.

I've actually got a fair bit of both brass and aluminium tubing. But it's a bit too wide for this project. I'm thinking of using it to mod a Primitive Rifleman into a modern version.
