 HISS Scout update
So, I actually really like the HISS Scout. The only thing I didn't like was that it looked incomplete. Originally, I just threw an ASP canopy on it to make it look more complete, but it was not connected. Saw the Batpod for $6 the other day so I picked it up thinking I can do something with the cover to mount it onto the HISS Scout. Ended up only using the metal bar on the hinge. Basically drilled a hole in the side beside the headrest and shoved the rod through and drilled holes in the ASP canopy hinge part and put it over the rod.

The other thing I didn't like about the HISS Scout is there is a gunner's platform but no handles on the gun. Using parts from the spring loaded weapon from ROC Eel, I made a handle for the gunner to hold the gun.

What do you think?

I have not opened my Hiss Scout yet, but is it just the angle of the pics, or is the drivers view have him always looking to the sky?

this is really neat looking, I think yours is better than Hasbro's. I love that its in cobra blue, that just makes it look so much cooler.

Looks great. Only thing I would do is "weather" some metallic or silver on the gun barrels. It is totally okay if some red is showing through...it would look like the barrels were starting to overheat from an intense battle.

But how you have it looks factory fresh to me. I have not seen the factory one, but I'll check some links to compare.

Good custom. Hopefully this will get a nomination for a nod for a vehicle custom o' the month. Nicely done!

Thanks for the comment. I actually didn't notice your post until now. I might listen to your idea an weather the barrels a little now that I have started painting. I have to dig it out of the box again. This is how I have it displayed now with my Tread Ripper.
