Ultimate Upgrade: Sentai Battle Tower
Here we have the second tower, this one is a bit more lax on the interiors, but I may go over it again in future. This tower sports two massive chaingun turrets and 2 diagonally mounted defense lasers, the turrets are controlled from the top of the tower, the lasers have small control chairs behind the windows. The central tower area is a storage facility for ammuntion, currently containing missile racks.
The chainguns do indeed spin, the turret can also rotate on 2 axis points and has room for a minifig to fit on top.
The lasers have 2 ball points of articulation, was a bit of a challenge to fit swivelling joints to the diagonal.
Here’s a bit of detailing and rocks thrown in for fun.
So in conclusion, this tower was a bit more rushed, hence the general lack of interior, I wasn’t sure what to add to it in terms of interior and the original model didn’t have much. Also to get this out of the way, the original sentai fortress tower this is based on is dumb, that massive wide turret looks so stupid in my opinion so I basically did away with that. The point of the UU series is mainly to increase piece counts ludicrously but in a way that is an improvement, keeping that turret would go against that, hence 2 individual turrets.
Now with that minirant over, comments and criticism are welcome!
