Nice additions to the Gyro box. I like the look of the cab with out the arms sticking out but either way you have a very interesting build going here. Thanks for sharing.

X-Wing Things!

I found these Engine Halves in the Parts Box. They are also from the old 12" MPC X-Wing Fighter.

With a little Cutting & Fitting they should fit the Gyro Box just right.

Here are the Engine Halves in place on the Gyro Box.

Battlestar Galactica!

I found these Engine End Caps, left over from a vintage Monogram Colonial Viper Kit Bash. They will be the covers for the Electric Engines in each Wheel.

I could have glued the Engine Ends on the outside of the Rims, but I thought they would look better recessed into the Rims. So I marked off some plastic to be removed.

After a lot of Grinding and Fitting and Sanding I got one of the Ends to fit inside!

Thanks Carl!

You wre right of course....the inset wheel centers are much cooler.

That new rear panel is perfect for that spot.Just complicated enough to look right.As for the arms...If they were articulated just right it could change it's own tires!

Thanks Tom!

That's a good idea... B)

Electric Wheels!

First I sprayed the Wheels with DupliColor Grey Filler/Primer. Next I sprayed a couple of coats of Tamiya Silver Leaf.

Then I brushed a Black Wash on the center ribbed section.

Great start. However I think the arms are just too strange. I vote against them.

Thanks for your Vote Bob!

The Dodger is so much Fun as it is, I think I will probably save the Arms for another project... B)

Only from the uber-creative mind of Ira. Love it.

How's about one of those arms to act as a "kick-stand" when you shut the gyros down? Sure gonna need something to keep from falling over. ;)

Thanks Bill!

Good Idea... B)

This is a really cool build. How about a sat dish or other kinda of antenae on the roof. And maybe the Italeri crane behind the cab???

GYRO Box Pipes!

I cut 2 lengths of Aluminum Tubing and glued them to the ends of the Tanks with Zap-A-Gap, as a shown.

Then I added a little White Glue and filled in the holes and gaps.
