Default Magnets on Hammerheads

Being a tight walleted Tau player i'd like to multi role my Hammerhead for railgun and ion cannon roles. To save experimentation please can someone tell me have they done this before using rare earth magnets ? In addition are there any hints and tips you may pass on.

I magnetized mine using that thread. For the guns, I found that you can use a piece of sprue inside to mount the inner magnet on. You must add this piece of sprue before modding the gun, or it will be quite a pain to insert! It can be done though, I did it with a railgun.

The Ion Cannon pretty much works with just a nail head instead of a second magnet, it droops a little though. The railgun definitely needs two magnets.

I used 1'8" magnets, by the way. If you want to know more about what I did, let me know.
