    Regarding the RotF Depthcharge Scout figure, i distinctly remember some rumors of a simple mod to fix/improve his legs. However, i have done a thorough search of the radicons tutorials and customs section, and the tf wiki, and i cannot even find any mention of this.

    Is my memory just [playing tricks on me, or does this mod really exist? Or is it just an idea that peolpe want, but haven't done? I'd appreciate a link to any existing mods for Depthcharge, so i can apply them before my next custom.

    Hey bud! The mod is super simple, just pop the legs off at the upper thigh swivel joint and reverse them. Left leg on right swivel, right leg on left swivel. Bingo! Doesn't affect TF and really makes the legs better, plus brings his height down more in line with other Scouts.

    I don't have any pics of the mod tutorial style, but you can see the results in my thread here:

    Go for it!:thumbs2:

    Oh, simple. Thanks a lot, Big Hank. I've done it now and it looks much better.

    Coincidentally, i was also gonna use that for a Seaspray...

    the mod thread is right here in this same forum, man. Radicons Discussion, but yeah it's simply popping the legs off the hip balls and swapping them.

    Go for it! We could use a more size-scaled Movie Seaspray, although I always swoon at Spurt Reynold's amazing custom Seaspray from an Energon Mirage: Seaspray (Movie) - Energon Customs - TFW2005.COM
