Rusty Clunker

I'm packing all my models tomorrow, so I thought I would build one last thing. Instead of throwing out some old crap models, I cut them apart and into an improvised armoured truck. It's made with parts from Airfix, Pegasus, Dragon, Tamiya, and plasticard. It's from as varied a birth as what it represents. I don't have the time or materials to base it and crew it.

Hah! Not a truck...

Well, it seems that the Guild thinks pickups aren't trucks... I just made another pickup.

Welcome Commander Abdul Bashir, the mostest corruptest ANP commander in all of the 'Stan. He's rollin in on his pimped out ride! 

Bashir's been siphoning off funds to Mr. Taliban since 2001. He's a little disappointed he won't be getting any of that unicef money this year. Seriously though, you should see the luxury Jacuzzi he bought with that money last year!

SF Technical - "Truck" Fast Build Entry

That was fast!

I had all day so I went cracking when this Guild build theme was announced.

I already had been planning to do this so I had most of the bits ready. In the morning I built the roll bars out of steel and copper wire, swapped the ridiculous toy wheels for airfix ones, and mounted the machine gun. Later in the day I painted the guy (a total conversion of a Ceasar figure with an S&S head) and made the stowage. Then I undercoated and painted. At about ten at night I finished the painting and then based it. I just finished the flag and did the pictures. Sadly my camera is messed up and I had to use my mom's iPhone. I think the photos are terrible.

Thanks for looking
