Hi All!

I posted up a step by step for putting together the GZG Grav Van using grav plates instead of the VTOL fans.

This is the completed conversion:

Please let me know what you think, since this is a new article style.

Thanks!

A good looking and relatively straight forward kit conversion thats been well thought out and put together, well done…

Looks like that works about as well as I'd expected it would. I'd still be tempted to leave the pins on the grav pads and drill holes in the body for them at a suitable angle just for extra durability, but I've got a rather good dremel to work with. Nice to see someone else who uses the "dab it on" approach to accelerants – never understood why anyone would want to breathe the fumes from pumping that stuff.

Much as I'm not a vast fan of grav vehicles much, that actually looks better with the grav plates than it does with the fans!

Well done!
