Did some ammo belt a while back, not my best work but did the trick. It is basically what Lindsay said, except I used a transparent plastic strip as a base. Then plasticard squares on both sides and greenstuff wiring alongside :

And another one in the bottom picture

Both of em could have been cleaner though, with small rectangular pieces to link the square together for example.

EDIT : missed your post about open ammo belts while redacting, my bad !

The models I showed aren't mine, just examples I found of armoured ammo feeds. For exposed belts, a paperclip rod bent to fit - it'd have to be quite precise in how it's curves fit the desired shape, little room to correct with the sculpt here - over which a sheath of GS is applied and worked into a thin diamond-shaped cross-section, roughly as wide and thick as the munitions will be long and wide.

Give it a half hour or so to lose its stickiness but still be workable, and then use an edged tool to press two lines along its length on both sides where the links would be. Then use the same to press in the rims of the cartridges, then use edged clippers to press in the bullets with a little snip near the tips to get them distinct, and use a blunt tool to press in indentations along the belt where each cartridge meets.

Fingerpainted example:

Barrels done. The dreadknight flamer fuel cells have come in very handy.

Just thought I'd sit down and try a few things on my robot ideas. 3 god dam hours later.

Slowly shaved down the imperial knight head, until it fitted nicley with orignal robot rear head bit.

Decided it needed a big engine on back. Then thought, I'll just bend some rod, en stick it on, easy. Bending rod easy!! cutting rod to lenght and sticking it on agggghhhh

And I've got to do again also need to get Ork another exhaust to much!!!

Sweet, it has something of an Iron Warrior feel with this head.
