Excellent build, Neal. And from the looks of the pictures (I copied some) you are clearly having a blast!


Neal brought the Z.A.V. to our F.A.S.T. club meeting this morning...guys, the pics really don't do it justice. You can't see them in the pics but that Chevy even has maps on the inside walls....how 'bout them apples? Way to go Neal.

I haven't posted in a while... I have a bit more done on the Aerodyne gun platform but, nothing worth writing home about, yet. Hmm, I really need some help, I wonder when Sasha the Welding Girl will become available for hire?!? :rolleyes: ;)

I know I haven't been to sociable so far, been busy with work and fixing broken vehicles maintaining running vehicles. But I have got a little done on the engine for my truck.

Posted Image

This was made from two castings taken of the cat inline six originally in the kit. Something along the lines of "there's no replacement for displacement" I now have the world's first cat 6812 v-12 engine. I've still got to finish plumbing the turbos to the intake. This thing is so big I actually have to widen the truck to make it fit, which is why I haven't been able to start the body yet.

And I don't remember if I mentioned this before or not, but there is some crazy stuff going on in this thread. I sit in awe at some of what I've seen.

if anyone checks my fotki (link in sig) I've posted a couple other vehicles I've built in the past that match the theme.

Small update, got the upper cannon temporarly mounted. Im leaning towards the mobile lab once the trailer is done so I want it to have some futuristic style weapons as well as field applied bits. They started with the truck and trailer at the government facility they worked at, stole and mounted some experimental weapons and then took off cross country. Along the way they added armor and other defense weapons as they came across them.

OK so did some prelim planning with the sketchup so it will be a little easier to scale things out and this is what I came up with. The truck is called "Laviathan" and the driver is Rhiannon. Her uniform will ptobably change to my original design I got. The pics may not be totally accurate engine wise because I just spliced to 6v71s together. It has two rotary cannons off an A10 worthog, 2 20mm chain guns from an Apache, dual ma duece .50 cals in the top turret and a set of M134 mini guns on the back turret. All weapons are remotely operated from the cab so there would be a need of a TC to run them. Directly behind the cab is the extra weapon and ammo storage and inside is a dual weapon rack between the seats and a rack against the back wall. And a Kawasaki 250 enduro for a quick getaway vehicle if need be. (yes I know the one I used is only a 125 :) ) It also has the railroad running gear from a larger RR repair truck for quicker movement around the territory.

Wife also suggested to use something to deploy caltrops behind the truck. The aircleaners, windshield,bumper and mirrors are from an MRAP. It will have a winch on the front (forgot that). Maybe a few more auxillary lights.

So now it is time to get to the fun stuff. Good lookin builds on here, keep it up. Good Luck all.

WOW Hugh the tenderizer is looking awesome. I really like the box and the way the cab sets above the fenders. Keep it going man.

This is pretty good, and then you realize that those are monster truck tires and that is a semi truck cab, now its even better. I like the box and under cab/fender area. Almost like the repair truck for those backwoods logging/mining crews.

Here we go again! I bought the tractor at least a month ago, probably two. The Ford I bought the same day as the Henry J, in other words, on the day I got back into model building.

And inspired by Mad Max, obviously. Was gathering bits for this for a while too.
