Default Converting gun drones into shield drones

This is a simple conversion, making gun drones into shield drones.
What you need(tools not included):

1x gun drone
1xshield generator
2x pulse rifle
1x extra aerial (if you bought a shield drone you should have one spare, as it is not used on the shield drone)
some kind of slim round bits, I used the barrels from a burst cannon, but sprue plastic should work, allthuogh that would require some major cutting.

Step one(shield):
The little round thingy (witch the pusle carbines mounts on) is cut into half just over the the two "plugs" (the ones that goes into the holes in the pulse carbines) the bit that´s used in the conversion is the "cog wheel" part. Cut the the "plug" (that goes into the arm of the crisis suit) of the shield generator, and glue the "cog part on", glueing it cut to cut. Make sure that the plug that goes into the drone main body is at the center. When dry, make small antennas(the ones on the shield dish, compare to a shield drone) out of the barrels of a burstcannon. Glue on in a spread pattern on the shield dish(but not in the middle), let the glue dry. Make a hole for the plastic rod in the middle of the shield, with a pinvise or similar.

Step two(Aerials):
Cut of the two little antennas sticking out on the end of the aerials, but cut clean as you need them later (well I suppose that burst cannon barrels could work fine to). Cut the tip of the pulse rifles , just after the big round thing. Glue the tip of the pulse rifle on to the aerials were the antennas was before, when the glue has dried glue the antennas on the two little barrels on the pulse rifles.

Step three:
Assemble your home-made shield drone!!!

Heres some pics of mine and a "real" shield drone to campare with:



I photoshopped the pics so the details show better.

Happy converting!!/slai
