Purchased some trucks and cars from Bluemoon Miniatures. Have to say, they need a lot of attention to detail when cleaning and assembling. A Lot. Pieces were not sent with the stake bed truck, wheels and the back stake walls had 2 right side pieces which meant customizing one to fit the other side. When assembled with scratch built wheels it came out pretty good.
Next up is the 4 door sedan. Still working on getting the resin cleaned up. Hats off to RRsize for his efforts in getting the Mechanized portion of the 1st Mechanized Precinct ready for the 2ndACW battles we will be fighting in June.
Got out the first piece of armored fighting vehicle for the Expeditionary force. Started with a Bulldozer and did the turn it around for a new front. An old Grant Tank, 1/48th scale provided bits and pieces, especially the armored vision ports.
Bull dozer blade removed and the set piece bogie's also. Refit the stock bogie piece with bogies from the Grant as well as trim fitting Drive sprocket gear teeth over the existing ones.
Gun turret added. Proved to difficult to cut into the upper chassis after I shortened the overall height of the tank by cutting away some of the under carriage. Next was cut and thin the gun port covers from the Grant tank.
Spare bogies put on the outboard back side. Primed and drying for color coat next.
RRsize was over and put in more work painting his rubbled building. Thought to post an updated set of pictures:
More work to go. The wooden floor sections are removable to add variety options for the building. Interior still to be worked up and of course more painting of exterior debris. Might ask him to mount some glass panes back into some of the windows, up to him though.
Playing around with some of the Mage Knights Technopriests, 3 mechanical legged, human top figures I have started assembling some pulp robots:
Here on the left picture are the basic parts from right to left: Technopriest whole figure, clipped at waist and then the bead collection package for 3 figures. On the right the beads have been stacked and a hole drilled into the base of the torso mount. A round top pin was cut and shortened to then allow all to be glued in a stack and pinned to the torso bottom / legs section. Arms are in the works, not sure what type of ends to them just yet. No painting yet, colors are what original parts cane as. Will be using a metallic color though, maybe a few small warning stripes, directional arrows or such!
