Building new sails for my Raiders Empty
PostSubject: Building new sails for my Raiders   Building new sails for my Raiders I_icon_minitimeMon Oct 01 2012, 08:14

This weekend at a local Gaming convention's Bring and Buy I picked up 5 raiders for $15 each. They are all built but the only problem is they are missing the long spikey trophy racks and the sails. Now the spikes are easy enough to build but i am stumped on how to rebuild the sails. The originals are completely gone with only the boom left in place.
Any suggestions? Maybe something out of left field even!

Ask anybody you know if they have any in a spare bits box, Each new raider kit comes with 2 sets of sails and ravagers come with 3, there has to be someone at a local shop or something that would be willing to help you out! If not, well I can imagine them being a pain to scratch build. What might look cool would be to use acetate for the sails with some kind of pattern on them, semi-transparent with hexagons for example. But how to make the fins? That is tough. I would suggest creating a wire skeleton, attaching the acetate sails (or what ever else you want to use) to the wire with maybe ?superglue? then use greenstuff to bulk out the Wire and firmly hold the sails in place. I guess then either stick it on the boom with superglue or if your neat with greenstuff find a way to bond them together?
Its a lot of effort and personally I would just try to find repacements but if I couldn't, that would be how I would repair them!

I've got a few sails as well if you need more! Again, happy to provide to you for the price of postage. Smile
