Alright! I finally got around to making instructions! Yeah! Enjoy, and if you post yours online, please give me (Henry Pease) some credit.
These instructions will be divided into three parts:
1. The Body
2. The Front
3. The Back
Let's begin with part one, shall we?
A side view of the parts you'll need.
It puts the tires on the wheels . . .
Then put the pins in the side of the wheels with the holes.
Then attach those pieces to the studs created by the pins.
Then look at the damn picture . . .
Then look at the picture again, do the same thing with the other two wheels, and put them together like so.
And now, part two!
Now, was 'bout dis time I realized that the camera wasn't set for close-ups, so I pressed the flower button, and you might notice a slight increase in photo quality.
Get another sand-green slope.
Get two more and attach them with the dark-gray piece.
Put on the windshield and headlights.
Don't be distracted by this worthless text.
Put the next piece and bend it into position.
Go forth, and gather these bricks!
Put them together like shown, with the black clippy square sandwiched between the two regular black squares.
Assemble the parts like that.
And put them on the hood.
Then, class, procure what you made in part one.
Attach the front to the body, PAYING CAREFUL ATTENTION THAT YOU ATTACH THE FRONT TO THE LOWER BLACK PIECE. Otherwise the minifig will be forced to sit backwards.
On to part three! These are the pieces you should have left.
Get these two pieces.
Then put them together.
And make sure they're right in the center of the rod.
Make sure the two dark-gray pieces on the same side as black pieces are exactly two studs apart. Of course, everything should be centered.
Now get two more of those dark-gray clippy pieces and the rear lighting.
The one with the stud should go on the left side.
Put them together and attach the antenna and rear handlebars.
Simple, yet I feel the urge to type a caption for every picture.
Yeah, you could do that.
You're mostly done, mostly . . .
Attach the rear platform directly below the dark-gray pieces below the rear handlebars.
This is the hardest part, getting the back attached to the body and everything lined up. You'll probably brake it a couple of times, but once you get it . . .
. . . The result is awesome!
And fragile. Really fragile.
Heh, very good. My one complaint is with that the one that I made, the suspension system often sank under the weight of the rest of the vehicle. But maybe that was my fault. Anyway, thanks for posting.
Amazing! It looks so cool and accurate that I just want to drive it right here and now! (*groveling sighs*) anyway, that has got to be the best looking mongoose I have ever seen in lego! (no offence scorp) Just awesome!
the wheels are very good, I like how you attached them to the carrosery
seeing the instructions makes me interested, the design is better than it looks (weird to say actually) great job, it's very interesting but I won't use it for in my elephant because it is too big..or my elephant is too small...
Hey Henry, remember me? We met at BrickWorld. Anyway, very nice detailed instructions! And Pyf, I bet Henry could pwn you at Halo, and I bet YOU couldn't stick a sleeping grunt. And I bet Henry could stick you from the other side of Sandtrap.
