    I made a little mod for Earthrise Hoist to store his gun underneath the hood of the truck

    Nice job! That huge open area under the hood could use some filler;)

    Sigh...

    I hate to have to post this, because I love when people show off their mods, and I don’t wanna poopoo on your work. But this morning I realized you can store the hand cannon without any mods at all. You just plug it into one of the forearms. 8862C368-A2E4-4945-A023-79FF686B2931.jpeg D6159288-0372-4ED1-BE06-0A4FD5F29666.jpeg

    I just tried this on my Hoist and it was to wide, did you sand yours down or am I doing it wrong?

    Mine fit fine. No mods whatsoever. I just plugged it into the 5mm hole in the forearm What’s too wide?

    edit- just got looked at it again. I does seem like it’s a smidge wide. And a little askew due to the width. It might benefit if the gun post was trimmed a little. And maybe shave a little off of the rounded ‘hand guard’ area so it fits. Totally up to anybody whether it’s worth it.

    Now it also has the added bonus of adding blast effects or 5mm weapons to the front of the truck

    This actually puts some pressure on the sides of the hood, which is entirely clear plastic.

    Good point. It’s not much pressure, but could easily stress and crack it due to the delicate nature of clear plastics
