Wonderful progress everyone is making.

Brendan, that is some wonderful weathering. Keep 'em coming.


Not a problem! I did this car 3 times until I liked where it was at. Thanks for the compliment!

So more work on the parts. Shaved all the flash off the parts. Also cut the hood in half in prep for hinging it. I had to shave about an 1/8" of resin from the hood so it was closer to scale width. Also shaved the pedals off the floor since I plan to use the ones from the DM800. The winch is going on the front and then I shaved brackets into the air starter tank and hydraulic tank since the excess resin was about the perfect size. I am going to shave the pillow and bedding off the bunk and cut the wall between the seats and bunk out and then make the bed flush with the floor since my design has no bunk in it just flat floor.

Well here is my latest progress on the viper. The first few photos are of the car with stowage in primer. I cut a shell ejection port in the gun turret and made a spare ammo cartridge out of Panther stowage bins. The next photos are the car with a base coat of Yellow. Ive applied the salt method to add chips to the coming camo. Im thinking of a modified WWII British cantour camo scheme.

Warhammer stuff -is- awesome...

Unfortunately it's costly. I've been wanting to get some for my collection, but just for one kit with a good bit of parts it's like...30 or 40 bucks. They should carry grab bags of random detail bits from WH40k for us oddball builders that enjoy the over-the-top-ness of arming our builds to the teeth! I'd buy plenty of those, if they were reasonably priced.


The tank kits come with multiple weapon options. I had leftovers from a 40k tank I built and I can't believe they found their way into the trash. I'm kicking myself.

Need to get back to work on my stuff, just got burnt out dealing with too many projects at once, and then dealing with wife aggro, and a recent funeral and the fallout from that.

I cut the frame in half and made a couple extensions. Now I need to figure out the best way of piecing it back together. Any suggestions?

Looking real good. It loos like many of you are making excellent progress . . . and although clock is not ticking down yet, it's definitely time to hunker down and build your heart out.

I would try to fit some scale C channel into the rails, and then some larger channel for the extensions, from what I have seen of the over all design, the frame wouldn't be too visible on the truck to begin with, and it's easy to explain that the frame was " reinforced " for better durability in a possible impact
