Here's the album for this build.

This based on the AMT 1941 Ford Woody with a few modifications :blink: . This is my second build for the TZH Post Apocaliptic CBP. I imagined this to be a vehicle used to retrieve water from various rivers and lakes and transport it to small pockets of humans. Onboard water treatment and minimal armour plus a couple of sensor operatoed guns to support the small arms used by the support staff. "Galaxium" (my first TZH buold) would provide the heavier artillery, clearing the way if needed and remote protection when collecting or delivering water.

The water tank was made from the packaging for an Xbox controller, the inset for the handles making the two halves. It is mounted in a Silverado pick up box. The wheels are aftermarket. The rest is parts box bits, pop can, sprue, shoe laces, rust and parts from a dead DVD player. A little imagination and weathering was added after that. Enjoy!

I've got some Ulrich Mini-Men and I plan to build up at least one or two to man Nemo.

Thanks for the nice comments. I had fun building it which was the main thing! The CBP thread is huge and has lots of builds that are great inspiration for this kind of build.
