I also worked with Dylan Lambert to make a second version of the magnetic couplers.



It's going to get interesting.

I picked up these really inexpensive lead canon from the UK - 42mm war game stuff. Crude but I think I can make them work for captured or battle damaged background pieces. I will add a few details to them and paint. These are 3 of 9 different ones I bought.

Hey Bud, Heath is Thomas correct?

Howitzers will look great!

Not sure about the couplers. Kinda in the dark as to what your doing with them. I thought you were link and pin ops?

Anyhow drive on!

Hi Philip,
Heath is Thomas' nick name.
The couplers are what are called chopper couplers, kind of like link and pin. The 3d design holds a small magnet that will allow semi automatic coupling. So they look like working choppers without the challenge of inserting the pins in the coupler sides.
