my snow hogs back wheels don't work you aren't missing much, there is a l shaped stud preventing the wheels from turning if pressed down on too hard

I also extended the back of the warthog so that the gunner has more room to stand and to give it a more game accurate appearance (in my opinion). I kept the center console pieces fairly true to the original build but add a rear facing computer screen that is not visible in the pictures. I also rebuilt the bumper that was used in the original build so that it would work with the new body design, but it looks more or less the same. Overall, the original design for the warthog run set is more complicated and a bit more detailed, but the dimensions just looked a bit off to me.

Thanks @VinceHoffman. The original warthog shares the same design as the one from the Arctic Warthog set (I think. I do not own that particular set, but both builds look very similar). I'm not overly fond of the new design because of the shorter body and how wide the wheels are spaced apart. I followed the instructions for the older Flame Warthog pretty closely while rebuilding this and the most noticable difference between the two styles is in the axles and physical build of the frame. The frame of the original uses smaller more generic pieces, which was nice, but had new axle pieces that causes the wheels to be spaced further apart. On my reworked version, I left out the new axle pieces entirely and opted to use the 1x2 blocks with the hole in the middle and a connector piece, to attach the wheel assembly.

Hey @Sam2077 the build looks great but as I haven't acquired this set yet, I'm curious as to what aspects of the build you re-worked and why. Can you walk us through the specific changes you made and provide a little critique of the stock build?
