Electronic Tinkering

So my project broke during the move. And broke once more after re-glued so keeping them separate for now.
Slot for battery stack and drilled a slot for on off mushroom. Became a bit askew so altered it a bit and will clean it up with some green stuff when finished.
Stripped down a USB cable for some wires.
Here is the on off latch. The third stub fell down into the carpet so had to remake so a bit different as you can see. It's main purpose is to hold the switch in place while gliding back and forth, so won't matter much.
This is the bit that connects the two lines and slides back and forth to break the connection. I greenstuffed a pin to it since it so small solder might have drowned it and glued didn't want to hold it.
A bit closer don't know if it is any better but included the to compensate for the poor quality.
A bit hard to see but here are the latch in place, (metal up) not glued in place but works with slot. Now only a thing to hold the batteries in place is missing. Didn't have time for that this time so the project continues.

Ironblaster / Scraplauncher

Dual plastic kit. A lot of bits as usual with Ogres. Bought this to convert into a Pump Wagon.

Front of the box showing of the Ironblaster
The back showing the Scraplauncher.
If you are interested in the old metal Scraplauncher I got an in the box for that over Here.
So haven't decided what to do with my spare ogres but they probably come handy when least expected.

You know the drill, front
Back
Here are the main body. Got a bit sad about it, with all the bits you get overwhelmed with detail but without any bits there isn't much to the wagon. Don't get me wrong There are loads of details and quite nifty what they used but it's quite flat.
I will probably build an extra floor too it may try to copy the really old Pump Wagon.
Got a bit carried away and tried to put the cannon together before I to the pictures.
The Sabertusk skin is really nice, don't know how easy it will be to use for something else though
Thorough instructions
And the other side.
