    Hey guys, just wanted to share up what I've been working on recently. This is one of the scratchbuilt spoilers I finished, installed on RTS Jazz for my pal Xhairs (this is his Jazz figure). I'm still working on hiding the hinges with some very thin sheet styrene, so they don't show as much. Here are some shots showing alt mode, bot mode, and where it all fits in with the articulation and all. Wrapping up a few other spoilers as well, before shipping them out soon. This is still a WIP, but it's nearly DONE. Also, I added some attachments showing some references for the Jazz spoiler that I used.

    This looks great! By the way, where did you get the hinges that attach to the spoiler?

    It looks good but it needs something that I just can't quite put my finger on. Something so it doesn't look so obvious. Maybe a small prop from under the new spoiler that just rest on the back of the car.

    This really turned out nicely! I can't wait to see how it'll look with finished off (labels, paint, etc.). :thumb

    The hinges are made of nylon and can be found in R/C shops. They're typically used in R/C aircraft and such. They make varying sizes, some even smaller than the ones Brian used. Here's a link from a quick Google search that may help you:

    Thanks, man! I ordered the hinges online at Tower Hobbies.

    Already got something under there, man. I may jack it up a slight bit though, if it still looks ok. I think it could be the hinges throwing it off since they show.

    Glad you like it, my friend! I'll shoot you an update on him soon--I've been sick as hell the last couple of days and haven't done much, other than the Wheeljack mods (in bed, no less). lol

    Thanks, Allen! This bad boy belongs to Xhairs, so once I'm done with it, I'll shoot it back to him for all the detail work and reprolabels. But yes, I'm looking forward to seeing what all he does to it when he gets it back.

    Thanks, man! Ordered 'em from Tower Hobbies (check out the link that Alty posted).

    That would be the hinges--thanks for the link, Alty!

    Tower Hobbies has them--picked up a couple of packs in January for these things.

    Thanks, Z!

    Thanks, Jason! Can't wait to see yours completed, man! Anytime! Glad I could build something cool for your custom, my friend.

    Thanks, man! Hit me with a PM for details. I have a handful of these I'm still working on right now. You can also check out this thread here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commissioner-listing-feedback/352664-rts-jazz-custom-g1-spoiler.html
