    Combine Ceiling Turret: table mount - update 28/11/12

    To keep at least some element of intrigue, I will not specify which item from the world of Half Life 2 was the inspiration object

    Basic set of material
    [​IMG]

    … and a baby carriage ?!
    [​IMG]

    Not all of course, only covers from the wheels

    Cutting, sawing, drilling

    Combine Ceiling Turret: table mount - update 02/12/12

    Let's continue table mount making process…

    Since intrigue failed - just a screenshot

    I don’t really know what is it. Something links to the security screens in the Combine armory.

    Billets for "legs" from the aluminum angle

    Wow.

    I've never played half life, so have no idea what that is, but it looks cool. Nice work.

    Could it be the power source (battery) for the turret?

    It's really great idea to build UPS into the table mount. :thumb:
    Here a lot free space inside and UPS weight could make construction more stable :idea:
    Thank you so much for your idea :rock:

    This has been impressing me from the beginning. :)

    It's been a while since I played half life so I didn't know what it was on the guess game but I always love seeing grab anything that works type modding like using a pram wheel for instance. :idea::D:dremel::idea:
