I will have to start scavenging the parts box for now because I will not have extra money unttil next month for the cab and chassis parts I need. Although I got a paystar that I am not a big fan of. It has an extended chassis so maybe I will start out with that. Anyone know of a Detroit 12v71 in 1:25th?

Here is some more inspiration:
This is a steam powered pete that would probably make a cool truck. It has steam train running gear:

Don't forget our soldier's hillbilly armor and gun trucks.

And then their was the Tonka Appocalypse trucks that I can not seem to find a pic of that will work.

Terry, that looks like a real monster, and I love the contrast between the red rims and the black body. Nice, go for it.

Good day, folks...seems I have some catch-up to do!! I've been MIA as I gave up Facebook and all forums for Lent.
My 1961 Ford Galaxie build called "Galaxium" is complete! Here is the entire Photobucket Album.
A few pics of the finished vehicle.

Tony, what a wonderful build. It's got lots of attitude and the perfect unified look. Excellent. I copied the pictures for the next YOUTUBE vid. Thanks for sharing.

Galaxium is the best.

Here's where I sit with my scout car.

This was a period NASCAR kit that was hopelessly warped and twisted in the box. Perfect for a warped and twisted build.

Thanks, Wayne...That is a great use of a warped and twisted kit for sure! The camo looks good, too!

Galaxium rocks. These builds are awesome. Hey, Doc, when is the convoy scheduled for? In December or sooner? I will send mine in for it but this will probably be a few month build. Anyone got info on 1:24/1;25 small arms like M16s, a deasert eagle and such online? I like realism? Scavenged the parts box last night and found lots of Diamond plate and a few other bits and pieces including a HD Frame from a DM600 and other parts from it. Anyone got a line on a 12v71? Hey Agent, what is the base model on the scout? One more question, on the Ertl abomination of the "Duck" mack, what rear axles are those? They almost look like rockwells or at least could be disguised to look like rockwells with a little work.

TJ the base kit is an old AMT NASCAR Pontiac Gran Prix. I cut away the offending roof section, and added the ring mount. I plan to use wheels and tires from a Revell Impala SS.

Awesome builds everyone! Ive been absent from the fray for a while (real life took a turn for the better and I got a nice full time job to go to 5 days a week) but rest assured I've got some stuff in store that you'll all love.

Once I finish the MG for the back of my technical on the other CBP I've got going :P

Wow, everyone's stuff is really coming along and looking great. I have been a little busy lately and didn't post the list this weekend. There wasn't much changed anyway. I have gotten some progress done on Ice Breaker though. The full album of all 42 pics that I have of it can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/zYzAE. Below are a few of the most recent. I need to finish painting the truck bed, and then I think I will move onto the M55 and finish that before I attach the bed to the truck permanently.

Here is some more inspiration:
This link is for when I was doing research on gun trucks so check these pics out.

Someone should also try doing a WW2 DCKW (think that is right)

A cool 53 Mack lowrider that would make a cool rig for this:

And since there was a Lego set on here here is a Vietnam gun truck I did called "Nancy" with a WW2 quad .50 setup:

I will design and find more inspiration while I am waiting on parts. Need to do some more research before I get the frame together.

Terry, your lego build, Nancy, looks exactly like what I have visioned for my build. Except I have a lot of ideas to add to it. Man, you even have the winch in the front and everything. Once I finish it, I am considering that my base model and building around it to make it much more dangerous and awesome.

Thanks for the inspiration, Terry.

And, Joe, I like the progress you are making. The pictures are coming through a little blurry. You probably need more light.
