Hey guys. Some of you may remember this from the Post apocalyptic group build. A few things didn't quite set well with me. And one of them was the long wheelbase and the box. So I'm going to take care of that. I got this urge to throw on the back end of a Chevy II AWB body I had laying about. I like the tail lights. This may look odd now (it was meant to actually) but wait to see what happens.





I want to try to redo some of the paint as well. It's acrylic so the shouldn't be too hard.

Look what I done did ya'll. I went and got me rid of some paint. Simple green eats acrylic for breakfast. I'll have to wait to paint it when I get the back end sorted of course.

Thanks Scott. I had this idea the first time around but didn't go with it fir some reason. Should have, would've saved me some trouble. ::)

I've seen pictures of 1:1 vehicles with this set up. It must be just tension that keeps the track on. I suppose you could put the track on a flat tire, then pump it up? Anyway, now I have to decide if this is a rubber or metal track. I've seen both. What do you guys think?

Metal would probably be more fun to paint...rubber would probably make more sense.

Ya, I guess that is the dilemma. I must go with metal because it would look cooler. ;)

Everyone likes metal. Well this rig will have it's fair share,....if the turret isn't enough for ya. 8)

I was thinking of putting a gun on the back. Not a canon but just a good sized machine gun or something. I'm not knowledgeable about guns. I think a Gatling gun would be neat. Does anybody know of a gun that is simple in design therefore easy to scratch build?
