could indeed... but as they are packet by 4 and I need 10, means I need 3 pack (with 2 unused and won't be used as this scale isn't my scale) ... so about 18 US + shipping... that's more than the price of the kit and only for 1 type of guns, ... I'll make them

you are under the 10% tolerance for scale so the 3D quad mounts could be still used on that model. can still use the 2nd link & this http://archive.hnsa.org/doc/guncat/cat-0018.htm to get your gun mounts somewhat more realistic as I think your gun barrels are more then 9.5 scale inches center to center.
