I was thinking, and thinking, aaand thinking... about the Stryker stretcher design i made. You all know that i'm very ambitious when i try a new design and so i changed many things on the stretcher because i had some really nice ideas to get it more functional and realistic lookin. Changed the stretcher carriage and used minifig arms for the new one. The wheels are made of the technic rubber tubes which i cutted in small pieces. And i changed the adjustable footboard and headboard to get it more like the original one. So that's the result, i hope you like it :)
About this creation
Here are two new pics of the stretcher how it fits in an ambulance and how it looks with a figure on it.
Here a new update of my Stryker :) Added a second set of rubber tubes to get bigger wheels and added the fall protection on the right and left side. Now it's finished till i have new ideas XD (first pic below)
Here you can see the stretcher carriage with the minifig arms and technic rubber tube wheels.
Btw, now the stretcher fits well in all my ambulances because of the new adjustable parts. And another nice side effect. It fits much better to the normal minifig size ;)
Hi Frank my friend, thank you again for your nice comment! I really appreciate it. I'll do new pics of the stretcher in the ambulance and with a figure on it. Never noticed that i forgot that XD I'll let you know on one of your latest creations when the pics are up. Greets, Sven
I wanted to see how good it looks with a fig, then found that you did nt include one pic of it, but, by itself it looks fab, one pic to see it fit the ambulance would have been great too, I m pretty sure you ll do it someday, an incident perhaps? xd.
Thank you very much for your nice comment. I agree with you, like the minifig arms too. Btw, it fits only in the ambulances when they have no interior like the drug cabinets on the sides because the stretcher is nearly four wide.
Oh Jimmie, i feel really flattered by your great comment and compliment. From you this means a lot to me. Thank you so much my friend!! Oh no, what happened with your station/work? Hope you could solve the problem you have. I wish you all the best and good luck for your project. I'm really curious and can't wait to see it my friend. Thank you for your nice wishes. Stay safe too! :) Greets back, Sven
Yeah i cut minfig arms off from older ones XD Thank you very very much my friend. I'm glad that you like it so much. Btw, thinking about using a second set of rubber tubes to get the wheels a bit bigger.
100/100 WOW If anyone can improve on a fantastic model it has to be you. To me this is an ingenious masterpiece. The wheels are dead on ringers for the real thing. Your out of the box thinking really shows through on this one with the minifig arms. Stay safe my friend I have to go solve some of my own problems with Station 51. It has gone from project to nightmare in about 2 hours. Greets
Even better than version 1, I did not think that was possible. I'm not much of a stretcher guy, but looks very realistic. Like you stated, I also think it fits minifigure size better than your other one.
Ja manchmal kommen mir ganz spontan neue Ideen, besonders wenn ich der Meinung bin es passt noch nicht so ganz. Lässt mir dann keine Ruhe. Diese hab ich dann noch schnell vorm schlafengehen umgesetzt weil ich nicht mehr bis Morgen warten konnt. Hab vielen Dank mein lieber, bin auch echt happy mit der neuen Version. Viele Grüße, Sven
