    I have gotten a few pms about this mod. Pretty easy if you have the right tools.

    Please note, this requires tools that are sharp and can cut you. Please be cautious if you try this:) 

    1st: Cut the sides off of the part that flips up and down:

    2nd. Trim off the insides of the two parts so can can be cemented together:

    3rd: Cut the hinges holding the death claw part and bring it down and glue it:

    [​IMG]


    4th: Glue the side pieces to the bottom of the gun:

    5th: Add extra parts to fill in the gaps and do some sanding:) 
    I hope it helps.

    I have the tools. How hard would it be to make those pieces utilize a hinge? That way they could fold down for murder arm mode, and remain open for vehicle mode.

    encline, do you have anything else you'd wish to add to this? Does anyone feel that there needs to be anything added? If not, we can go ahead and resource this :)

    Ack! I did just basically the same mod to my Megatron.... except I flattened the 2 halves to make it more sleek. I will post pictures tonight. It looks awesome when on Megs.

    Doesn't this basically get rid of any type of turret in tank mode? I might have to go and buy another Megatron. Then I will have three different changeable arms.

    Great mod for Murder Arm!

    This sound like the best way to go. Cause I'm not going to hack up Megs arm and lose his cannon.

    By the way, I am pretty sure it messes up the tank mode:)  I will cross that bridge when I get there.

    Take another leader Megs arm, or make a new type of cannon since his was not seen on the big screen clearly.... My Megs will have like 3 different arms.

    Wow. This is possibly the most useless post ever. If you do not know what you are looking at, then why are you even here. Take a gander at rotf megs and post something that is worth reading.

    Note:comments like this are never appreciated.

    Agreed. In the future, please simply use the "report bad post" feature. :wink: 

    Anyways, back on topic. encline, I am also just a tiny bit unclear as to everything surrounding this mod. Could you please post a photo of the completed result as well as a screen cap (or something similar) of your goal?

    Guys, I'd also like to reiterate that if you'd like to see something added, please speak now before we resource this article :)

    Awesome. After you post those, we'll see if anyone thinks there needs to be anything else added. If not, we can clean things up and move it to the tutorials section :)
