Hello all,

Im sorry to open a thread just to ask a single question, but i would much rather open a thread than trash my blaster!
(There really ought to be a thread for random questions like this.)

i am currently working on integrating my hornet onto the exterior of my titan. Instead of just slapping the entire rig on the side I would rather separate all the tanks so that they can be spaced out and mounted where i want them.

The problem is separating them. As most of you probably know, the tanks are very well glued to the frame.
So how do i separate them? Is there a way to do it without cutting through the stock barrels or tanks? And is it possible to do with a hacksaw?

if someone could give me detailed instructions on how to do this (most hornet mods leave out this useful tidbit) I would be very grateful!

Rest the hacksaw blade on the front black thing that slants down (rest meaning it being parallel as well). Cut all the shitty barrels off.

Go to the back and cut as high up on each tank as the hacksaw will allow (don't want to damage them).

Carefully cut the ridges holding each pair together.

Front meaning away from the tanks?

And by high up do you mean closer or farther away from the tanks?


Any chance someone could post a picture for me detailing where to cut?
