2012 POST APOCALYPSE/ZOMBIE HUNTER COMMUNITY BUILD


Recommended Posts

I got a permagrin today. Look what I got.

Can finally get around to accomplishing something. I also brought my Dad's Tyrone Malone Boss Truck and tore it completely apart last night. It came apart amazingly easy. Now to the reason I did this. I am going to cast some of the parts on the 12v71 for the one going it this truck. I plan to cast the superchargers with the intake hats and the tubing and twin turbos and intake box on it. So I guess it is time for some trial and error casting since I have never done it. Wish me luck. WIll post good update pics soon since I got me front drive axle and all the pieces to the chassis except rims and tires now.

Warhammer stuff -is- awesome...

Unfortunately it's costly. I've been wanting to get some for my collection, but just for one kit with a good bit of parts it's like...30 or 40 bucks. They should carry grab bags of random detail bits from WH40k for us oddball builders that enjoy the over-the-top-ness of arming our builds to the teeth! I'd buy plenty of those, if they were reasonably priced.

Rob I was thinking the same thing, some kits online are $66!!!! I would buy bits and pieces from some of the tank or imperial guard models

Alright so small update. Been workin away on the cabs. I am slowly but surely cutting my way through the hood of the B87 and I sanded all the unessesary flash and cast stuff from the B61. I also opened up the rear window on the B61.

I also found out with my design I did on sketchup and with the new parts for the chassis the chassis needs a 1.5" extension to get it to the right length.

OK so now the front has been trimmed, cut off the the hood and shaved the fenders. Realized I almost burned through one but stopped before doing so so it can be fixed. Still need to trim more resin out of the hood area and then cut it in half to hinge it. I chewed up the B87 cab mor then I had hoped so I am gonna cut the doors out of it so I can hinge them on the sleeper cab.

yes I ground down thw brackets at the back of the fender so they look better.

Wonderful progress everyone is making.

Brendan, that is some wonderful weathering. Keep 'em coming.

Not a problem! I did this car 3 times until I liked where it was at. Thanks for the compliment!

So more work on the parts. Shaved all the flash off the parts. Also cut the hood in half in prep for hinging it. I had to shave about an 1/8" of resin from the hood so it was closer to scale width. Also shaved the pedals off the floor since I plan to use the ones from the DM800. The winch is going on the front and then I shaved brackets into the air starter tank and hydraulic tank since the excess resin was about the perfect size. I am going to shave the pillow and bedding off the bunk and cut the wall between the seats and bunk out and then make the bed flush with the floor since my design has no bunk in it just flat floor.

Well here is my latest progress on the viper. The first few photos are of the car with stowage in primer. I cut a shell ejection port in the gun turret and made a spare ammo cartridge out of Panther stowage bins. The next photos are the car with a base coat of Yellow. Ive applied the salt method to add chips to the coming camo. Im thinking of a modified WWII British cantour camo scheme.

The tank kits come with multiple weapon options. I had leftovers from a 40k tank I built and I can't believe they found their way into the trash. I'm kicking myself.

Need to get back to work on my stuff, just got burnt out dealing with too many projects at once, and then dealing with wife aggro, and a recent funeral and the fallout from that.
