Ok so my internet is down so posting photos is unable to happen til further notice...

But I have gotten some progress on the gmc done. Pretty much fully built, just waiting until I get the weapon built and the finishing touches on the weathering.

...anyone else got something done to share?

It's been a few days, and we finally got internet back up- I'll be taking pictures this weekend when I'm off again. My dad moved one of the sheds in the back yard so I've got a real nice dirt plot photo op I can stick some scenery in and take some pics of the new Syclone build and the other two technicals in "action". unfortunately, it won't looks as realistic, seeing as how there's no figures in them. :mellow:

This is one I'll be watching...I've been wanting to do a duo of gun Jeeps a la "Rat Patrol" TV show. Got too much on the bench right now! Not to mention some spring cleaning in the yard etc etc...

Ok so No pictures just yet, but I do have a quick update.

I went with a WW3 approach on the Syclone technical- the drivers are some good ol' boys from the south, who decided to join the fight and defend their land from the enemy forces. The basic Idea is a converted farm work truck- it will still have some tools and whatnot laying in the bed, as well as a bench for the gunner that was built using "redneck ingenuity". It is armed with a tripod mounted .50cal MG. I printed up a confederate flag for the "flying colors" on this rig- I'm also in the process of finding some way to scratch some crumpled beer cans, spent .50 casings, and some small arms to lay in the passenger seat of the cab.

...what I wouldn't give for some appropriately themed 1:25 scale figures for this one....

Anywho, I'm also thinking up spray paint "tags" and redneck type stickers/decals for the truck... If anyone's got some ideas, shoot 'em my way!

Another update before bed-

I've got the gun, bench, and flag all painted up and installed, along with the loose tools and spent casings in the bed- Now I'm jst working on figuring out how to scratch up some crumpled beer cans, and working on mapping out some bumper stickers that would be appropriate for the build. I'm scratching myhead on how I'm gonna make the cans look like PBR cans after I make 'em... and I'm also thinking about throwing a grain bag or soil bag somewhere in the back too... this WAS a farm truck at one point, so I'm trying to throw in elements of that as well as make it look believable as a militant vehicle from the deep south.

Toss out some ideas, maybe I'll use 'em!

Ok folks!

It's officially the weekend- and that means I'll be taking some pictures tomorrow at some point, and you'll get to see some more progress on my builds.

Speaking of progress, has anyone started on their build just yet?

Ok, I didn't finish up what I wanted on this build, so I will just give you some progress on it.

It's mostly done, just needs some more 'personality' details before I call it done-

Notice the tools and spent casings in the bed- I'm still working on the ammo box, bumper stickers, spray paint tags, and some farm chemical bags or sand bags.... and the beer cans.

I might also throw in a grenade box somewhere. I've got a Navy Colt revolver and a sawed off 12 gauge scratched up as well, but they're waiting on a paint job before i place them in the truck somewhere.

More progress as it comes!

I was going to say the same thing, Austin. Good mud spatter on there too.

Thanks fellas.

I'm still trying to figure out how to do the other finishing touches, once I get 'em done this will be yet another technical to add to the wall!

I'll be hopefully making a video post sometime this weekend for this CBP.

That is, if my health permits. I've been battling a migraine for the past 8 hours, so I hope at some point it clears up before tomorrow.

Anway, I'll keep you posted.

Ok so I've taken a short hiatus from the technicals to crank out some PAZH CBP builds (I've let them go long enough without something from me :P)

But you guys are welcome to start throwing some of your technicals into the thread!


I'll be back on this side before too long.
