    this is a question for the ILM used kits guru's ;)
    I picked up a cheap MR AT-AT but its missing the side head guns.
    They look to be from a sourced model kit & i was wondering if anyone knew which kit they came from.

    Thanks
    Nathan :)

    20mm Flakvierling 38 were used for part of the side guns.

    Nathan, cool to hear that you finally snagged an AT-AT. :) For the side guns you need to pic up Tamiyas 2 cm Flackvierling. You could also buy the big * truck which has the same barrels but buing just the gun is going to be cheaper. The kit carries 4 barrels/recievers, you'll need them all. There's still a lot of scratch building involved but I'm sure you'll do more then fine.

    Here's a link to the kit you need: http://www.hlj.com/product/TAM35091

    Good luck.

    Steve.

    As a matter of fact, you will find a lot of Flackvierling parts all around the AT-AT...

    I got myself a cheap MR AT-AT I'm planning to detail with original parts plus making a change of the legs position.

    Regards

    You're right. The Flackvierling is probably (if I remember correct) one of the most important (for such a small kit) donor kit for the AT-AT.

    thanks guys thats been a HUGE help :)

    Heres the AT-AT that i won.

    unfortunately the seller wouldnt ship to Scotland, so i asked my good friend Dean O if i could have it sent to him & he would forward it on to me. It seemed like a good idea at the time..... but i dont know if he will now part with it now its in his possesion ;) lol

    Here are some pics of it, again kindly taken by Dean O

    Hm, i don't want to scare you, but look at the last 2 feet. They are missing the pistons connected to the feet, right ?... Hope you can find or build these too.

    My friend Phil Steincheider did the same thing for me. It's bad to live in europe sometimes, but it's so good to know so generous people too.

    Best regards
