    I've seen a few people use these on Prime repaints, and am wondering where to get one, or if they're just home made.

    I tried searching the forum, but that yielded nothing specific. Ebay seems very scant about 1/24 model kits as well.

    I saw how TFmaster made his....pretty much just flat styrene, with "edges" on the underside of it to keep it centered on the bed of the truck....

    That's what I figured. Shouldn't be too hard to do...

    Yeah, just use a piece of styrene for the bed cover. You can remove the rear spoilers/wings by unscrewing the screws and gluing it on to the bed covers so that you can open the bed covers. To have the bed covers remain attached in bot mode you’ll need to cut the bed cover in half. You can also add pseudo hydraulic openers (I used a hollow styrene rod and metal rod for that) to the bed cover as seen in the pics in the link

    The hydraulics are pretty spiffy! I won't need to cut it in half since I want to use it as a shield for the robot, but the hydraulic shafts would make a great touch to the truck mode. I'll have to give it a try...

    No, silly. Trucks don't sleep in beds. They make nests from leaves and other undergrowth.
