My most recent acquisitions were a Spetsnaz with boarding shotgun, an ADHL chasseur, and a spec ops model, which I wasn’t entirely sure at time of purchase what I’d be doing with. I’ve opted to give him the HMG and use him as a Spetsnaz for now. I decided to use the gun-free left arm, which almost backfired on me (more on that later), and add the included HMG to that.
Gluing the hand to the gun seemed a little underwhelming as an option, so I shaved the stock down a little (to get it to nestle a little better) and added a pin running from the stock to the wrist. Not completely invisible, but not at all obvious either. I may use green stuff to build up the stock a bit around the pin. That’s right, I recently used green stuff for the first time ever. Way less pliable than I expected; it’s going to take some practice, I expect…
Now the aforementioned near miss. The open hand is held at the Spec Ops’ side, in a downward position, which I completely forgot between cleaning the model last week and converting it this week.
It actually sits *exactly* level, which means a slightly thinner base (or no base at all) would have doomed it. Close call, that.
