For the Nickatron dials (which are amazing!) I just tapped some screws into them.
Same with the side rods. (Nickatron as well, you cant beat them)
Nickatron Resistor painted gold.
And now, a littering of pics that sum up the rest of it.
The wheels, I would suggest using 2 screws underneith to secure the tracks for the wheels, mine moves
With V hook
For the plate that the smoke kit comes through, I used a method I saw on Wiz's build that we also applied to Hoots build (Go check it out for more detail) I used a plastic elbow, some mini blind pieces and some hose.
I made it with a scratch built spinner lock kind of attachment.The name of this escapes me. The bolt on top turns to unlock it.
With a kenner trap for fun.
10 feet of acrylic tube under 10 feet of 1/4" splitloom for the hose. I also used magnets to hold the trap doors in place. The rear of the doors are held with pins and magnets (as seen earlier, and the front with only magnets.)
Since then there has been more weathering. This thing has been banged around harder than... Well never mind that, but its been used hard so it shows the wear. This trap has made its rounds, has been dropped, worn, poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered.... and led many a "hot trap" run. Its still going strong. I bought a holster from Franchesky for it that I bent to fit to perfectly. If I were to change anything would be the acrylic hose and split loom. I would do the reinforced hose and rubber line like GrimmyGB used. Every time I try and hold the trap by the hose, the splitloom pulls away and I dont trust its strength when holding it. So check that thread out for more details on it... Its the way to go. Otherwise, this trap has been a show stopper many times. just be sure to seal up the MDF and wipe it down after use of the smoke kit because I have has some swelling due to moisture.... Enjoy!
