Target Master Roller [shapeways]

Weapon: Battle Blades
Springing off of an idea inspired from Jozaeh's FANTASTIC looking Mini MP-10 project, I designed a legends scale Roller to go with it. Roller measures about 30mm long and is about 15mm tall. The original design that I came up with is hollowed out to make for a cheaper model and wheels were meant to roll. Unfortunately the plugs didn't turn out as I intended so I ended up having to glue them in place. It's kinda sad to have a Roller that can't roll, but there you have it.

I then took the idea and developed it further to make Roller into a target master. as I ordered these together, the wheel problem is here as well, but other than that I'm rather happy how it turned out. :)

Thanks, once I get the wheel issue fixed I might try ordering it in FUD

Interesting! I wonder what the gun mode would look like with the wheels flipped up on top of it?

I thought long and hard about doing that but there just isn't enough room at this scale to put any joints of that nature in. The total length of Roller is only ~1.25 inches. :/
