Not me. I've never assembled a Texas Longhorn SPG and have only seen photos. From the photos they appear to have the gun, shield and trunnions from the Anti-tripod gun. The gun mount appears to have been glued inside the tank's crew compartment, leaving no room to stoke the boiler and blocking the side access doors (great design concept ).
The tanks have an angled shield (?) forward on each side that looks like a bigger version of their side doors. I suspect those parts are metal and are glued in position with ca glue.
Old thread I know, but I'm working on mine right now. I've sent messages to ICG, and am looking up everything similar. The angled shields are easily glued, I use Gorilla Glue's Superglue, the gel. Works fine, give them some time to lie on their side with a little support. I use clothes pins and dice of different sizes.
I promise pictures of assembly once I have it ferreted out. ICG needs to get good pics, the boxes and website pics are rubbish.
OK, Joe says he'll try to get me decent pics. I promised him assembly instructions and a video in return.
RE stoking the boiler - it looks like the Texicans use gas or diesel? Their armor has an extra bit that fits on the coal chute, rounded top with what looks like a fuel cap. If so, no need for a stoker. The extra shields are asbestos to compensate? Dunno, is there official fluff anywhere?
My solution was to mount the gun on top of the superstructure. Makes it look more like an ungainly ad hoc field improvisation. I thought mounting the gun in the well of the tank was silly.
I like your shield , I am beginning to think the shop and the box art are wrong, and you are right, the small shield pieces go on the sides of the large piece, on this and the tanks.
Has anyone seen fluff on the Texas Units? Why wouldn't the shield pieces go together on top? What is the rationale for placing them on the sides of the tank body?
The shield pieces were meant to be on the sides as some sort of Texas home brew heat ablating armor. The back pages of the main rule book features a Texas tank with an unique overhead shield and forward side skirts.
