    following in the idea of POSSESSED_DIGIT with their mod to siege crosshairs i decided to give it a go with lego. I had some lego wheels i wasnt using and some extra mixel joints and a little bit of hot glue and superglue and boom.

    i think i want to paint the grey lego black to blend in better.

    definitely want to paint the rims red to make it more G1

    And here is the assembly before pegged in.

    its a 2x1 with a single stud, a mixel 2x1 joint and a ball on friction peg with the friction points grinded down so the wheel rolls. I added a piece of styrene to extend the stud and then added a bit of hot glue to bulk it up so it would hold with friction. I glued the 2x1 to the mixel so they dont fall apart.

    Again its just held in with friction so i can take them off if i find something better or want to go back to the original wheels

    A big thank you to POSSESSED_DIGIT for the idea.

    and for anyone wanting to try this and they dont have styrene you can use a standard straw, just fill it with hotglue to give it substance so its not weak.
