WIP War rig

Hi guys

This is my WIP war rig for all Post Apoc scenarios, sorry, forgot to take pics before I base coated it, I masked the flames of the original cab because they were just to cool to waste, the drivers cab actually looks like the bonnet of that car, it has a cage over the windows, the prime movers cab and engine are an amalgamation of 2 Matchbox/Hotwheels cars, the wheels and undercarriage of the cab and trailer is from a WWII 1/72nd Trumpeter Dragon Wagon, the trailer upper is from a cheap truck trailer and a Matchbox van cut in half for the fighting compartments, one of the pics has the seat area for the van with MG and gunner, I also have a couple of loose figures to man the trailer defences (that are among my survivor conversions in an earlier post)

    2. Yeah... sometimes you really shouldn't think about all the work a model still requires.

    1. I’d start with a chassis, I had a really good one with a Trumpeter Dragon wagon, but any good truck will do, then find something that will make a good cab, find the angles you want (I wanted the sloped cab) you’ll probably need to glue some support struts, then start adding details, lights, steps, ladders, chains etc.
