I decided to try and magnetise the heavy weapon load out on my Attack Bike. Heavy Bolter for infantry or Multi Melta for armour. All the details after the jump...
When I put the MM in place it was at the wrong angle, it pointed more skywards than forward (obviously I didn't check carefully enough). So I put a wedge of plastic, cut from a sprue, onto the MM magnet. This didn't stop the magnets sticking together as they are so strong but did correct the angle issue. You can see it in the photo below.
So here are the results. You can see that despite my best efforts the clamp on the bottom of the weapons doesn't rest perfectly on the support rail but I'm happy enough with the job.
Does anybody have any hints or tips for using magnets? I'll put a full photo dump of the Attack Bike next time. As always any comments are very welcome.
