Hasbro Tread speeder Conversion to a 'Desert Hover Speeder'


Recommended Posts

This is the Hasbro tread speeder, that I modified to a desert speeder instead. I sawed off the treads, the toy-like missile launcher and it's mechanism, and other parts that I didn't want and replaced the opened areas with plasti-card and some minor scratch built and other small detail parts from 'box of tricks'. The result is what you see. I posed the figure that came along with the Hasbro tread speeder. I posted photos without the figure as well. Thanks for looking.

Fantastic conversion Tiking. I never really liked the concept of the tread speeder, but you've managed to turn it into something that looks far more Star Wars than the original.

Thank you kindly Andy. Agreed. though I thought it was cool at first, it just didn't fit right into the SW theme. I mean, won't a hover variation be more effective in every environment?
