I was so inspired by Doubledealer's Springer, I had to do one myself. I am really happy with the results and that it required no paint. I took a slightly different approach though. I thought I'd share what I did with some extra detail to make it easy for others if they want to copy it.
All the additional parts are from a TF movie 1 Wreckage (i had two of them).
Parts from Wreckage:
- 4 Wheels
- 2 feet
- two shoulder ball joints (for Springer's new ankles). fyi, these were hell to extract and it ended up breaking Wreckage
The wheels turn wonderfully, are not wobbly, and seem to be very secure.
- To attach the wheels to the back I drilled tiny little holes in springer's original feet(lined up w/ the internal tube) and used regular screws that were pretty short (i think .5 in or less)
- To attach the wheels to the front, I put epoxy putty in the back of the missile launchers. Then I used the same screws to affix the wheels. Also, the missiles still work if you shorten the back of them!
