Good morning everyone-

How's everyone coming along? I'd love to hear what ideas you've got for your build!

I want to find a good 1/24 or 1/25 scale kit of a pickup. Then I will take the top off the cab, add some mg's to the cowl, and put a recoiless rifle in the bed.

I've seen a few done this way and it just looks cool. I for one wouldn't go near the frikkin' thing, but it does look cool.

;)

This thread has warped my mind (more than it already was?). I was following a school bus today and the idea popped in my head of a bunch of third world crazies with AKs poking out of every window. That's just wrong! :P

I've decided on the next kit I want to use-

Unfortunately, I didn't see it at my LHS last trip.

Bugger, it'd make an awesome base for a technical.

I'll also add that I checked out the instruction book online- this kit looks like a lot of fun to build. Plenty of options and details!

Not much, just waiting on me to get the kit I can't seem to find anywhere but online, and for some of the other guys on here to get their stuff together too :P

You should try it out! I think you'd enjoy yourself immensely.

I have a few kits here that I can consider, but I might end up using the GMC Sonoma. I like that kit, but I have to find one and buy it.

Thanks to Olskoolrodder, I'll be able to start work on the next technical very soon.

This time around, I will do more in-depth posts with better step-by-step pics (don't worry, I won't post -every- step, just the basics and the stuff I modify) that way you all can get a better idea of how i do my builds.

Thanks again to Olskoolrodder!

I'm looking into the Toyotas that MIG PRODUCTIONS sells but they are in 1/35th scale. I might be able to use those as a guide for the rear weapons.

You can still build the 1:35, if you want- as long as you take some time to build the top half of the engine (since they already come with the bottom half molded :P )

I can't wait to start seeing the stuff you guys come up with :D

I did a Subaru a few years back, and I wish I had another gun like this one:

Cranky, that recoilless looks like a pretty simple affair to do with styrene tube and stuff from the junk box... i've built a couple of .30 cals from scratch to play with... tell ya what; drilling cooling holes in those barrel jackets is teeeedious.

There is a company that produces PE barrel jackets in 1/35th scale. You have to roll them into a cylinder, then mount them. I took one look at those and just shook my head no.

Curt, I plan do do exactly that, make it out of styrene, this way I can modernize it a bit. I just have to track down a GMC SONOMA kit and I should be good to go.

Getting the Syclone kit on Wednesday, but unfortunately I will be out of town for work training Monday til possibly Saturday- and I can't very well pack up my bench and take it with me to my hotel :P

Thanks again to Olskoolrodder for sending that kit to me.

Any progress from anyone? It's been a bit quiet for a day or two :P
