    I customized another titans Fortress Maximus to add a g1 tower and ramps. I had parts left over and decided to do another but this time I would use the leftover parts to make full ramps and tower. Check out the pics and let me know what you think. Also I'm going to add the hip guns to Shapeways if anyone is interested. This is the link for them:

    This is a link to my first Fort Max if you're interested in seeing what was done there.

    Good stuff, again. (I recognize those ramps) ;) 

    So, can you elaborate on what you did with the tower? I can't seem to follow based on the photos....

    Thanks for the ramps! I used the tower from the first Max and made adaptors to extend it and make it twice as tall.

    Where are the ramp extensions from? They really help the base mode.

    I got extra ramps from another Max that used g1 ramps. I then created adapters that would allow me to attach the extra ramps to the existing ramps making them longer.

    I'm sorry, but I don't follow you. Do you mean that you bought a G1 Fort Max and put the ramps from it on a Titans Return Fort Max?

    Yes. He created Shapeways adapters to allow for G1 Fort Max's ramps to be attached to TR Fort Max.

    I bought a set from him and did the same; it's dope.

    In THIS thread however, he took an EXTRA set of TR ramps and created ANOTHER type of adapter to allow connecting TWO pairs of ramps to each other; thusly elongating them.

    Creative indeed.

    Here's mine with his first set of adapters; this allows for the original G1 ramps to be attached:

    That's great. Thanks for explaining that. I'm surprised that no third party companies have released extra ramps yet...
