Another tutorial to be tranfered. Not every kitbasher is comfortable with doing a reshell. Some may not know where to begin, others know the problems that arise make the effort more than they're willing to invest in a project. This tutorial is a quick reference on how I deal with issues as they come up. I've never done a build that just "fell in place". So, let's fit something rediculously large into something relatively small. Here, we plot out reshelling a Lamborghini Countach over the Alternators RAM mold. *Please note* The basic principles of re-shelling are the same, this guide is a reference on how to gauge a project and not necessarily intended for only building what you see pictured here. ^^First step is to remove any panels that are clipped on and screwed on that have nothing to do with the basic robot form. ^Set the shell beside/on the mold and view it from several angles over and over and go through a plan in your head (or on paper). This may need to be dragged out over several days if need be. You'd be amazed at how often a bigger better idea comes along. ^^Now that we're commited, we cut off all the plastic that is not a part of the core figure. ^^Test fit the car body on the figure over and over. You don't want to remove more than you have too. ^^Be sure to view from several angles. As you can see, the RAM is too long for the Lambo. Oh well, we tried. Throw it away and blame Wikkid for encouraging you to trash your Alternator Prime. ^^...or we can move on by altering the legs length. To do this, we reverse the famous "Alt Prime leg mod". By cutting off the truck box ahead of the thigh stop notch we gain the same leg articulation. To force a deeper compression, we hollow out the area below the alt mode notch. Be sure it's relatively smooth so it doesn't grab at the knee notches when transforming. ^^This is what the new leg mod looks like when extended..... ^^.....and here it is compressed ^^The RAM mold has a backbone type setup. This gets a 180 rotation from the legs as it's new standard transformation. Now unless you're going to make this Lambo a 4x4, we're going to need to get this thing lowered. ^^The RAM mold has the dash held to the center console with a screw. By drilling a new hole in the middle of the panel and dremeling out some plastic...... ^^......The shoulder mounts now sit lower on the chassis. ^^Seen above is the basic form ready for the shell. The RAM shoulder/dash panel has been filed down until the screws are exposed. This is as far as you want to cut so the original screws keep this panel in place. ^^Now fit that badboy on there.
