    I was pretty excited when I first saw the pictures of the Target Exclusive DOTM Jazz because I thought with very little effort he could make a great movie style Ricochet!

    Here's my (very) humble attempt to make that happen. Not a whole lot to discuss here, honestly. I added some gold highlights to the wheels, grill, face and feet. Print out some flame decals and it's a wrap! I'm not entirely happy with the decals to be honest, so if anyone can point me in the direction of where I could get some others that would work I would certainly appreciate it!

    The only down side to this project was that I needed to remove paint from the doors and hood. I decided to soak the doors and the passenger side hood panel in 90% alcohol which is NOT a good idea for this type of plastic! I knew better, but I honestly wasn't thinking. The result is that I now have a broken hinge on the hood panel. It will still stay in place in both modes, but it's still a bit of a disappointment...

    Anyway, comments and critique are always welcome! I would love to get some advice on the decals as well!

    Thanks,
    Nightwind

    I had the same idea when I saw/bought him. Good work!
    Have you tried modding Pinpointer that comes with HA Tailpipe into his targetmaster yet?

    Thanks for the comments, everyone! Much appreciated! :) 

    KowBot, I am thinking about a Targetmaster but I'm not sure about the direction yet. I have an extra Pinpointer that I was trying to find a place, so this could work! I'll give it a try! Thanks! :thumb
