    Those are just the wheel backs from the stock kit with the spindles poking through. I'll probably just use weathered hub caps eventually.

    I was a little more conservative with my saws Here's where I'm at after a little scratch building and kit bashing:



    Oh, the saws are off of Speed Racer's Mach 5 if anyone is curious.

    Hi Rob,

    Yeah, you're right. It does look 'kinda spindly up there. I'll add some reinforcing.

    Thanks!

    I had a little time the past few days to get the gun assembled and a gun mount fabricated. The gun still needs some fine details but I was worried about handling it so I left them off for now. I'm hoping that the mount is strong gnough so I can fire my rounds into the zombie barricades without damaging the truck.

    Now I can start concentrating on protection for the cab.

    Here's the start of my build. I was going to do a van with treads but I changed my mind when I found this Chevy truck kit. I started with a 1:35 armored personnel carrier, widened the frame and grafted it to the truck frame. Now I have to fabricate the flatbed, gun mount, mody mods, etc, etc.

    Thanks!

    Here's my toy:





    But our everyday drivers are pretty boring: She drives a Civic and I drive an Odyssey.

    Hey Kevin,

    Nice build. I dropped a 302 into my wife's Miata. If you have any technical questions, just drop me a line.
