    So many people noticed that the sides of the vehicle fold in but they are in the way. HeiroftheDog has posted a tutorial on facebook about how to do this.
    Since nothing inspires confidence quite like a video.. I made one!

    T2RX6 Fixes: PP05W Weapon's Specialist with HeiroftheDog's Mods - YouTube

    Notably the chipmunk sweak type stuff was supposed to be silenced by windows movie maker.. but apparently when it crashed and reverted to my saved version I forgot to check and make sure it was down again.. lol.. oh well..
    I was talking and not saying anything important. haha

    This is more of an "option mod" rather than a "fix mod" TBH. Yes it possible to fold these flaps in without modding, I've done it myself a few times, but you will need to wiggle and waggle them a bit, and ease them past the molded "screw" structures that stick out either side of the mid torso. As it's not a "clean n easy" fold of the flaps without the mod, you could cause stress fractures or possible breakages later on (and there are some people showing up that have already busted their figures). I am aware in my pics, I have the mid split torso big belly hinge facing forward and that the correct transformation is to swivel this round the back. However, A) I prefer it in the front as you loose a split gap running through his body. B) If you do swivel it round, you can not close the side flaps in as flat as you could the other way round, mainly because the gap between the flaps when closed flat is smaller than the length of this belly hinge and so would prevent the flaps from laying flush. This was purely done for me and only went on FB after a few people asked. The choice is yours whether you do it or not. Play Safe, Mod Safe!

    I didn't know about this mod. I looked at it, saw the hinges and thought it was meant to fold despite it not being in the instructions. I broke the whole front bumper off Ratchet and had to glue it in place. I can't even do the mod now. Oh well, I'm glad I'm not the only one that broke it
