Ghostkeel options

Post#1 » Dec 02 2017 10:01

Afternoon all,

I couldn’t help but get my hands on a battle force box. I’ve been wandering about the build options for the ghostkeel. You can have an open or closed cockpit, is it possible to magnetise it so you can have it open or closed. Also can you have an empty cockpit? I’ve enough spare bits to cobble together a pilot that could stand at its feet (I’m sure you’ve all seen the Titanfall kit bash) cheers in advance! :D

You don't need to magnetise - it will friction grip with no issue and you can easily leave out the pilot if you want. In my opinion it will be necessary to magnetise the helmet to the cockpit lid (not great to have it glued to the cockpit when you open it) .

Hopefully the first three photos here viewtopic.php?t=26860#p340618 will show you what I mean.

I did a 'TitanFall' one too.
