>How much do you generally spend in making one of those, op? And how much do you waste to build one item?
cost to make one, technically, nothing, I had the bits lying around.
but £2 / $2 worth of brass rod will do for about 20 guns, plus the bolter itself, which was sitting around in a bitsbox.
the bolter was used up in making the shotgun, but the magazine is intact, and I'm now looking at recycling that into autogun parts, which would use the same brass rod, and maybe a little bit of plastic card.
pretty efficient, in all.
waste, a few little bits of plastic, maybe a few mm of brass from filing the ends clean. nothing else lost. maybe one sawblade for 10 models too.
