Default Forgeworld Bit - Broadside

Anyone know where I can get my hands on a SMS for an XV88-2 broadside from forgeworld? I bought the entire model but the previous owner "lost" them however that occurs is beyond me. Anyways I have this epic model with only one weapon. I was thinking of canabalizing the SMS off of a hammerhead and using those but I'd prefer the SMS designed for the forgeworld model as they come with a ball that fits the socket on the model. And I prefer the SMS on my hammerhead over the burst cannon. Any ideas?

Sadly, trying to buy individual FW bits like that is next to impossible. Unless you know someone who has extras, your only option is probably buying another model or converting, since I doubt FW will send replacements for models you bought secondhand, especially if it was "lost" like that and the kit wasn't sent incomplete to begin with.

I've seen a convincing enough conversion using two crisis suit missile pods glued together and a burst cannon drum cut to look like a swiveling mount for it.

I agree with Sid, the best way would be to model it yourself with some missile pods from crisis suits or even the metal ones from the broadside. I've got some XV 88-2's that I haven't built yet. I could take some pics of the pieces if that would help.

Its probably a long shot, but try emailing forge world, they may be able to help you.

Otherwise....make it yourself =}

The missile pod is just down screen.
