Yo. Been looking for a subject for this GB for a while and I think I've found one. I have not bought this yet...gonna sleep on it. What do you think? Does it fit the theme?



and maybe with this:



There is this version too...but I kinda like all the extras stuff you get with the other truck:


There are a few other pickups...but the price of the resin kits is nuts.

Cool. I'll just have to find reference. This kit has no damage...no dents etc....

I'll practice denting on scrap...bit of heat etc... Can't believe I'm gonna get another kit, start yet another project. Man, I sure am good at starting.

This has definitely peaked my interest since seeing the Meng kit in FSM a couple issues ago. But I hear it's hard to find in N America. If you're willing to wait.... ;D

Scott, the freedom in the painting and finishing you are 'allowed' on this one is reason enough to do it. They come in all sorts of shapes, styles, colors, and conditions.

Image searches using the word 'technical' can find you countless different looking vehicles.

Love the camo'd truck second from bottom.

Are you thinking of putting it on a base Scott? Could have a good little diorama setting with that model subject. See enough footage of those things whizzing about in the news.

Some kind of a base/diorama for sure. I looked at the MasterBox Iraq 1 figures too.



But Lord knows I wouldn't want to get carried away..... ;D

Suggestions/pics for a base? Feel free to post em.

I was just thinking that perhaps there could be a few crates/ammo boxes like this around the pickup.

Yeah, after the war in Libya, there are tons of pictures of these floating around (not that there wasn't before). They even have a pick up that they mounted a rocket pod you would normally see on helo gunships.





Or there is this one:



The rocket pod in the back is essentially the rocket pack on the trailer of this kit:



Or something like this:



More

Wow. Nice pics! That last shot looks like the gun from the first, white truck kit.

I ended up ordering the second, red truck with all the stowage. Hard to choose between the 2. That BFG is nice too.

++++

I'm gonna order a couple figures for this. I'm thinking either the MasterBox kit:



or maybe something from Verlinden. They have a few good looking sets:




Open to suggestions.


++++


Any kits out there for a BFG on a trailer? Something that this pickup would/could be hauling?

I ordered the red one. The one with all the stowage....

LOL. You got me second guessing my choice...a BFG would've been cool.

Maybe I should get both....gulp

Nah...

just make your own mount and stick a machine gun in it, it's no different than how any of those other weapons were mounted.

Jury rigged.

These kind of makeshift gun trucks really interest me. You may not see so much rust on the trucks in the desert but you could still have alot of chipping with bare metal, primer or previous paint jobs underneath. Lots of weathering possibilities.
