As you try to fold the hood/suspenders part over, you will see some squared plastic reinforcement stopping it. Just get some clippers or [an] X-Acto and trim it. [This] won't change [the] transformation. Itís still tight on the back of his head, but [it] easily swings down. The hinges I trimmed. If I didnít trim those, it was stressing the hinges WAY too much for my taste:
Cram the slider as far forward you can get, and push the door hinges up to hold it.
What I have now, is about as good a mix between accuracy, playability, and ease of modification that makes me happy enough to get back on the side of Leadfoot:
Another nice mod is the front wheel wells. There is a grey hinge with a square on the rotator to stop it from folding more to allow it to tuck in closer to the body. This is a really easy shave; when you look, youíll see.
I went from complete buyerís remorse, this thing is not worth a pinch of rat shit, to LOVING the mold.
I WILL say....I could NOT have made that transition without straying from the instructions, and making a few mods.
