Just started playing about with some parts and used a deff kopta as a base model for a nob biker, and i hit a slight problem
the size of it means it will not fit onto a cav base (wheels and track sections are too wide for it) and the 40mm base is simply too small.
only bases i can find for it to fit on are the flying stand base (about 50mm?) and the large monster base (60mm)

any way of getting around this? want them to be legal and look half decent, however basing is an issue.
any ideas are welcome.


Also, pics of it will be added to my blog when i can find my cam.

I don't know how much you converted it, but I did the same for mine and they fit on the biker base pretty easy.

I had a similiar issue with my Wazdakka conversion. What I did was take a square 40mm WFB base and put the parts of a round 40mm base cut in half on the ends:

Nice Waz conversion green git. Could we see a pic showing how you made his power klaw?

I'd also recommend a square 40mm base with the two halves of a round bases added to the top and tail!

thanks for all the help everyone
seems like the square 40mm and round 40mm idea will be used
