I am saddened. I can't find the older hydra FW kit.

 :o you're right! That is sad. Though I must say I do like the new plastic model (complete with barrels that recoil), the Forgeworld one was nice too. I especially like the rear hull of the Forgeworld version. RIP FW Hydra  :'(

Oh yes, the new plastic kit is really nice. I still need to magnetize mine, though. That or continue my conversion process.

I just finished painting mine (except for it's camo netting, forgot that bit). Really enjoyed it. You can click thru to my blog if you want to see it. What conversion do you have in mind? Closed top?

I have a so-so conversion that is based on the ADL quad gun with lengthened barrels, but it didn't come out nice.

Since my dreadnought autocannon arm design turned out as nice as it did, I was thinking about using what I learned from that and roll my own, from model-up.
