First off, those look amazing. Second, any chance you'd post a breakdown picture?

Thank you :) although this was very heavily influenced by a combination of other designes that I saw.

Sure here's a breakdown, I chose the smaller of the two because it would be simpler to provide a breakdown, plus it pretty much the same as the larger one, except the larger one has more "flair" :lol: :

I might add that the left and right foot hold connectors are placed on top of the bottom foot hold connectors because the left and right connecting piece sits one plate high

I would like to mention how the white rod is very important (wow that doesn't sound right :lol: ). It holds the entire barrel together all the way through.

Any further questions please feel free to ask :)

These look great and incredibly realistic. I love what you did with the ski pieces as shields and I love the look of the four support struts. Great job!

I'm actually kind of jealous that you can make such authentic looking turrets! These would go wonderfully as stations to Skrob's Spodertonks. lol
I would love to recreate these but unfortunately, there are some key pieces in this build that I do not have (The minifig skis in particular)

The cool thing about making a kind of "generic" style station is that it can go with almost anything. So it can be used with several different companies. Need an extra station, or just wanna change up a station, the generic style station is where it's at :lol:

And don't be jealous, these turret builds were just a combo of a few ideas from other different builds I saw and from working with the pieces I had. By improvising a little I was able to come up with the Plate Shield, which is nothing special in itself. Try out different looks, combos, and ideas with what you have and you'll probably find our something even better. :D
