Default Devilfish hatch assembly

Hi all! New to the boards, new to the Tau, new to Warhammer 40K in general...

I'm working on a Tau army and my son is building an Ork army. A nice wholesome father and son activity...

Anyway, I'm starting on my first Devilfish and I'm unsure about the hatches -- It seems obvious that the rear hatch opens and closes once the model is done, but I'm not clear on the side hatches. Are they just glued in place? It almost seems like they could be pinned to allow them to open and close.

Just curious what people out there do.

As I said, we're new players, so I'm looking forward to participating here.

Welcome to the forums!

To get the side hatchs to open and close, you will need to pin them. Here are two articles that describe advanced conversions you can do on the Devilfish, along with a few other pointers to make it work properly (magnets help).

Tael seems to have changed how his links work, but the original pdfs for his conversion guides are still on his site: http://www.eastern-empire.com/
