I got the idea from dim3's blaster, seen here.
He promised to post a writeup sometime in February, which came and past. I made a 3 turret version..
Here are the pictures:
I've had the templates in my notebook, with the intention of making them public. Soooo... Today, I transferred them to 'shoop, and I have them for you.
If you have everything for this, it should be pretty explanitory. There's no set way to make these, so I'll just tell you how I made mine, and the pros and cons of my version.
I cut these parts out of 1/4" polycarbonate, and drilled out the biggest circle parts about 1/8" deep via a spade bit, and drilled out the center holes (if you look at the templates, these should be pretty obvious). I then dremeled out the small holes to the sides of those bigger circles, and dremeled out the bridging area a good bit.
From here I set the turret's rotating cuff into the grooves I had just cut, and the three turrets could fit on there pretty well already. I ran the rotation rods through the back plate, through the turret and into the front plate (the three pronged looking piece), where it gets its cap. From there, you need a pivot for the whole turret assembly. I used a 1/8" diameter rod, to fit through the center of the assembly and into some well measured holes in the maverick shell.
It works, it looks bad ass etc, etc.
Cons for this method:
The assembly is a bit wobbly, and the pivot holes are a pain in the ass to get right in the shell
I'd recommend using a spacer that's a hair longer than the turret around the assembly's pivot rod, with lock nuts on the outside. Another option would be to add rods connecting the front and back plates of the assembly to make it less wobbly.
Edit: Man, I just wanted to mention the slew of shit I did to this mav. Before I did this mod to it (and would have had to redo the seal to the turrets had I not sold it), I had made the turret release button on the right and left sides, it was shooting about 55' flat with a Lt. Stefan spring replacement, it had a straw mod, the replaced petg barrels had 17/32" brass inserts, and a near perfect seal to the turret.
