    Sep 6, 2015, 9:43 PM - Boussh Tank build #1

    Just thought I would share this progress with everyone. I've never built anything Boussh so this should be interesting. Lol

    This Boussh is for my wife. While I have some downtime from painting Fett commissions and waiting on her soft parts to get here, I thought I would jump on these back tanks. I have no clue who this kit was made by. I got this from a friend who decided not to upgrade her current tanks.

    Pictures show the kit and the beginning stages of prepping and assembling the tanks. I hope you enjoy.

    Slowly but surely. I'm still in the long process of attaching everything before primer. I have to adjust some greebs so they fit flush.

    Nice work. Did you just trace the greeblies to size the cutouts in the PVC pipes?

    Thank you. I measured the greebs then stenciled the measurements on to the tanks before cutting. I cut a little short and then filed the openings to fit them snug.

    I wish I had a decent picture of the small round greeblie when I did my build. Now it's too late but looking at your kit, I think I came very close to what it's supposed to look like ^^
    Anyways this looks like a very good start!

    Slowly but surely. Masked silver damage on right tank, first layer of dark grey down.

    It's a very nice kit DS! Sorry my build is slow but I've been super slammed with work and my helmet isn't done yet so I'm really in no rush.
