I have sort of run out of steam on modeling for a while boys and girls. Got lots of stuff going on at work (odd shifts that keep changing) and at home (house hunting) and just keeps stealing my free time so I never really get into that zone where things get accomplished. I'll be back when things calm down. Keep building.

Also I won't be at the IPMS Nats in Orlando after all. I'm not an IPMS member and I'm not going to pay to join just to enter the show.

Thanks Dennis. This build is a first for me on quite a few parts and mods.


No prob, anything I can do to help other people enjoy this hobby as much as I do, just makes me enjoy it more. To tell you the truth, the Widow Maker was the first post apocalyptic vehicle I ever tried, and I think it came out looking really good, you just gotta go with you're gut, and let the creativity flow into the model. Keep the truck coming, it's gonna be one mean looking Mack that'll put the Rubber Duck's to shame

The Heartland Model Car Nationals will be on the 9th and 10th of June, I'll be getting as many photos as I can, and I'm trying to get my mud trucks ready for the show. My Widow Maker will be in it, I also have a 1984 Ford Bronco, 1991 lifted Ford F-250, 1975 Chevy K-5 Blazer, and a salvaged 1956 Ford pickup that'll be in the show. Can't wait to attend the show, and share the styrene beauties with you all!!!

Littl bit of mock up. Trying to figure out what to use for the top turret. I have a few of the lowboy electrical transformers that seem to be the right height. The bed is just a livestock trailer roof. Though the length and width are close.

I want to get the cab to set about this high and these tires.

I'm actually building this in another CBP, but I thought Cranky's Mad Gremlin couldn't be the only post-apoc Gremmie, so I'm whipping up a little somethin'.

So this would be for those that like their zombies well cooked?

Updates, Updates! Everything is looking good from you guys. Hopefully mine will turn out that good. I need to do some casting for a .50 cal ma duece and such. But this is where I am now. I took the big step and no turnin' back now. The turret looks a little off but is actually centered in the cab. Shaved a bit much off one side so I will need to infill.

I took the lowboy trailer kit and hacked the center section out which made it perfect lenth. Then I plan to hack apart some of the transformers to build the roof turret section. Got the tires and wheels figured out thanks to Dave at AITM. We also figured cab mounts need raised and possible suspension lift. We'll see.

I'm loving the look of that "boiler" inserted into the cab!

I'd like in in this if it's ok. But I been a little help. What can I use for guns? I'd like a quad 50 or twin minigun but would consider something else. The build would be in 1:25 scale.

I'm at a major point in this build .. the finicky engine is finally together! It just got a black wash which needs some q-tip cleanup ant some touch up but I can now move on! :) The sink marks on the carbs really jumps out at ya in these photos but will be more subdued as a whole and gonna just live with them. I originally thought they would end up on the inside. :(

The body is in salt .. decided that will be the look once I decide on a final color . :)

You could try to use small gage sprew, and drilling them out, as well as drilling the support structure for the muzzles so as the barrels can easily fit threw, iether that, or you may need to get some small copper pipe, and I mean really small.

Thanks, but I was hoping for something other than scratch building. The only thing I've seen for models is in1:32 I just don't know what's out there for military stuff, it could even be from a toy.
