Thank you everyone for your kind comments! I have been working on sharpening some stuff and building the back turret. I also reuploaded some of the older pictures because photobucket is flaking out on me...

I will be working on the front cannons soon and I am a little stuck. I cannot find the right scratch build parts to represent the muzzles shown in red circle here. Does anyone have any suggestions? I looked through Masters gun and cannon catalog and could not find any suitable parts. I was thinking of scratching something up with styrene, but not sure i can pull something off at this scale. I tried looking through necklace beads catalog, no luck either.

It will have to be small. The muzzle piece is about 5 mm long.

Thanks , Kyp! Your knowledge of SW is deep! I checked it out and it is a good approximation. I would use it if I can get enough of them and if no better options show up.

Dude, you might try AMT's Corporate Alliance Tank Droid. The kit has 4 guns, 2 are smaller than the others. And they have the cone shape you need with the vent holes. All you would need to do is hollow them out.

Unreality, that’s a great suggestion. I am looking the kit up on ebay right now.

I may have some in my spares if you want them or need measurements.

Thanks, Unreality. I appreciate the offer. Fortunately, I was able to purchase one of the kits through Amazon for $20. I am very glad the kit isn't too scarce right now.
