Week 95  This week we get the batteries

The bits we received

And what we did with them

I've started by painting the batteries.  I've painted the main battery body black, and the connectors have been painted steel.  They would be lead in reality and need to be a little darker, but I didn't want them gunmetal as that is used quite extensively already.  I'll darken them down with a wash.

The connectors are glued in, and the filler caps have been painted red.  Again, I've no reference for this, but red is a likely colour.

I've glued the boxes together, but the edges still need filling.  I've left the lids off, but they will just snap in after painting.

Finally, here are the batteries in the battery boxes.
