Endor Bunker Bomb Kit

Bunker bomb kit from wanna wanga. Did it go the way I hoped? Not exactly, always rush painting. Does it fit in with the rest of my rushly painted props? Yes, yes it does!

This kit is amazing, any flaws in the build are 100% on me. For example the thumb screw, didn't bore the hole enough and sheered the screw. Then had to drill out and glue in the thumb screw.

When ordering, the correct photomultipliers were out of stock so I got the mirrorred ones. The spot welds on these are fairly weak and I was able to take them apart, flip the parts, and boom, correct photomultipliers. I do NOT recommend this if you don't know what you're doing, you'll end up breaking them. They're are very delicate.

Wiring was super easy, just make sure you add the right resistors or you'll burn out your leds from the 9v. I used red leds inside the red housings, white leds even with the red housings were not very red.

Added magnets to the base so it'll stick to metal surfaces as it should.

Lightly weathered to hide some mistakes, a lot of mistakes still visible but knowing how most of the originals were slapped together I'm happy with it. Like the yellow stripes, pretty roughly applied but not too far off. Might revisit this later on, sand back down and repaint but that'll be for another day.

Fun build!
