    Hi guys finally got myself a Inferno thnx to my man Joon aka Knockoff ur awesome buddy!!

    As with my Grapple who got a 100% basefigure harmless mod...
    So does this one :D  Donated parts are from Rid Prime and 2tiny pieces Lego!

    MODS: (to base figure Inferno NONE)
    Step1.1-used parts RID Optimus Prime inner ladder part with front weapon gimmick thingy attached as you can clearly see in the pictures
    Step1.2-unscrew everything! keep only the inner ladder part (in 1 piece for now) and the part/plate directly attached to it
    Step2.1-trim down part A so it will not tumble over to the side (check multiple times for alignment or else the final result will be unentered)
    Step3.1-first grab a Lego-bar slightly trim down every side of the "+" then make sure it just fits and has enough friction
    Step3.2-insert in B all the way (not attached to plate yet but into Inferno), then slide a Lego-ring all the way over it and glue it on (not Inferno)
    Step3.3-grind and/or level locations E and H
    Step3.4-put another drop of superglue on the Lego-bar&ring (still mounted in Inferno) than press on the plate (make 100% sure aligning is OK)
    Step4.1-grind/dremel/cut away positions C and D (fit multiple times for a tight fit as seen in picture1)
    Step4.2-gind/dremel/cut away positions F and G (this is by far the hardest needs to be superthight otherwise extended ladder will tumble)
    Step5.1-the ladder section that need to be cut first is the height, it consists of the 3 stages, cut of the top one and smooth the remains
    Step5.2-from the ladder halves you need to grind/dremel/cut away all mounting points except for the first and last and make it smooth
    Step5.3-cut the ladder in 2 pieces right down the middle and clean up the parts sticking out from the newly created front and rear section
    Step5.4-the back section that connects to the hinged part (mount the plate!) make sure it's aligned and top it with superglue 2times for strength
    Step5.5-from both sides of the front section halves, cut/saw/dremel 1-2mm and make 200% sure it barely slides (NOT GLUE IF YOU WANT TONFA'S)
    Step6.1-after all fits like it should :)  you could cut a halve cirkle in the front of the ladder(tonfa's) to have the default watergun held with friction to!


    C&C Welcome... enjoy ;) 

    UPDATE!
    added tutorial... this took me almost an extra hour so make sure you give me credits ;)

    I'm trying to figure out how you attached it so it doesn't need to partsform. That last pic is detailed, but without Inferno in front of me, I can't tell what I'm looking at.

    It does, but could be easily be fixed.. but then I need to mod the base figure (or think even futher for no damage) but I don't mind partsforming :) 
    Only this that partforms anyways is the ladderbase!

    Of course we do :dunce  thnx

    Your always welcome we had a great time "geeking out" right? ;) 
    Thnx for the complement and everything.. still need to change everything to make room for all the super cool goodies you brought :rock

    Well this was a very special visit, since I never met an American in person...
    Let alone met anyone since my illness in 2008... :rolleyes: 
    O and finally someone to talk with who also appreciates Transformers :D 
    But other than that no need to be jealous at me ;) 
    BTW if you ever visit The Netherlands, you're more than welcome :thumbs2:

    cool, but I thought "twisted" meant more along these lines.

    or the fire ant predacon, but in cybertronian/earth form.
