Rob, I love it.  Between gizmology and scratch-building, you've got yourself a great vehicle in the works.  Keep it going, please.

Now I realize that this is still a work in progress . I really like what you have so far , my question is how do you plan on protecting the cockpit and it's driver ?

Seeing you getting your ear chewed on by a zombie would certainly put a dent in our day ! Lmao ! Great work , looking forward to the finished product !

Donn............I was sort of just shooting for a science fiction theme more than anything zombie related. Like something you'd see in one of those campy post-apoc movies from the 80's.

So i finished that red car and the police toy. Never found out which car it is. And that police toy, i don't even know if it's based  for real vehicle or  just imagination. Not so important.Took these pictures today. This first one i shall call Rolling Blades. This time i did better with salt and sugar than before.

Those came out really good. I like the "lawn mower".  Good for anti-personell, or clearing traps.

Teh armored car is nice, the only thing that gives it away as a toy is the gun still looks a little plain.

This is sitting outside my local Shooter's World. Guessing from the wheelbase, it looks like it's built on a armored truck chassis. It is not just for show. The sides are 5/8" plate steel. The round things on the side below the windows open from the inside only and are meant to have weapons fired through it. Lots of lights. It's for sale if anyone's interested. Only $120,000.

These show the sort of wheelbase you need for heavy armor. Most of the armored zombie hunters here would collapse under their own weight!

I guess my Destroyer II is wrapped up. Could use some more weatehring, but looks like it just needs a wash as-is.

I took some side by side photos with the first Destroyer, and it kinda makes the weathing on that one look bad. :unsure:

The British racing green one, I originally bought at a LHS when I was probably 13. I restored it about 3 years ago, and found some suitable decals last year.

The olive drab one I got off ebay last year with Christmas monies. New in box from China.

I built this awhile ago for another GB on an armor forum and thought you all might want a glimpse. It's an after the fall/post apocalypse/new world type of build. I used a 1/35th scale Hobby Boss armored car, added all the additional armor, and scratched the radar dish and mount. The desert camo fit into my plan for a wasteland scenario. UANA stands for Utah Arizona Nevada Alliance.

Here it is prior to paint. Everything that's not gray plastic is something I added or built.

not exactly, the vehicles based off of a heavy road truck, like the Petes have frames that are capable of withstanding well over 100,000 lbs, but, the tires, unless you wish to place more axles under the vehicle to spread the weight more evenly among the tires as many heavy haulers do, you may blow out a few of the tires.

That's a very nice armoured car, Wayne. It's stuff like this why I'm still hanging on to all my 1/35 armor junk and accesories. It should be compatible with a 1/32 car without too much fuss, but its way off for 1/24-1/25 for my taste...

Currently, all I have 1/32 is 3 different funny cars, which I'm not sure how that would work out . I used to have an awesome mid 70's Trans Am, I think it was a Monogram. had opening hood, rubber tires and such. One of the best 1/32 cars I can recall. I still have the wheels.
