Rob, of course, this can stay open. I think that's a great idea. I don't mind at all. Your $.02 cents are always appreciated. ;)

I have been having fits trying to think of a good way to make the ammo chute/belt. Any ideas?

Maybe notching a strip of styrene, then sticking it to the backside of smooth painters or scotch tape, then snapping it like a candy bar to break the segments and give it flexibility. It works in my head.

I just got a semi truck trailer and have been trying to think it I could use it or not and I think I might convert it into some sort or hideout/ bunker and build a diorama with the other 2 vehicles I have planned. Not sure if I'll go that way yet, but could be cool. Still a ways off if I do it, but I like the idea...

So, I finally found the tires to use. Brought my Dad's Payhauler cornbinder dump truck and froze it before tearing it apart. So I am going to make molds of the tires and wheels and rear axles to use on my rig. I am going to change the tread pattern a little and see if I can fill the center section of the tire to fit regular truck wheels. This may take beyond our alloted time but I will keep posting as it gets more dome. They are pretty big but I figure madmax/post appoc means using what ever you got so this will be pretty bad ass.


Wow, some very cool tires you found there - I dont understand you will change them at all, they look very cool as they are, as you said yourself: anything goes because "madmax/post appoc means using what ever you got" and those wheels could have have been found on some military equipment and then used on the car (big rig) I think the very "business" look of them are perfect for a post apocalyptic/ Mad Max look. Just my 2 sence. (however, if you do resin cast them I would love to buy some, if you would let me) Just awesome!!
