How's everyone coming along? I'd love to hear what ideas you've got for your build!

I've seen a few done this way and it just looks cool. I for one wouldn't go near the frikkin' thing, but it does look cool.

Unfortunately, I didn't see it at my LHS last trip.
Bugger, it'd make an awesome base for a technical.

Just got back from the Birmingham Classic and now will resume my forum activities beginning with a peek to see what is going on with this thread.
Not much, just waiting on me to get the kit I can't seem to find anywhere but online, and for some of the other guys on here to get their stuff together too
You should try it out! I think you'd enjoy yourself immensely.

This time around, I will do more in-depth posts with better step-by-step pics (don't worry, I won't post -every- step, just the basics and the stuff I modify) that way you all can get a better idea of how i do my builds.
Thanks again to Olskoolrodder!

You can still build the 1:35, if you want- as long as you take some time to build the top half of the engine (since they already come with the bottom half molded )
I'm looking into the Toyotas that MIG PRODUCTIONS sells but they are in 1/35th scale. I might be able to use those as a guide for the rear weapons.
I can't wait to start seeing the stuff you guys come up with

I wonder what you'll come up with this time!

Cranky, that recoilless looks like a pretty simple affair to do with styrene tube and stuff from the junk box... i've built a couple of .30 cals from scratch to play with... tell ya what; drilling cooling holes in those barrel jackets is teeeedious.
There is a company that produces PE barrel jackets in 1/35th scale. You have to roll them into a cylinder, then mount them. I took one look at those and just shook my head no.

Thanks again to Olskoolrodder for sending that kit to me.
Any progress from anyone? It's been a bit quiet for a day or two
