Some cool finds D. I agree about the dome, perfect for a bunker and I hope you do plan a dio with it. Great idea about transforming the picture as well. Hadn't thought of that but I'll try and find a pic of my truck and do some transformation stuff to it as well. Great ideas man! You're getting it!

Welcome aboard Tony!
Ya know, I was OK thinking that I was the only sick, twisted freak around. Knowing there are 11 others kind of scares the brown stuff outta me.

Almost forgot.
Here is my idea for EOD. Replace the rear axles with tank treads and that'll be the platform for my long range recon/scavange truck.




Hey Bob........gonna need some help here ol' buddy pal bestest friend.

Yep.....if I can actually pull it off, you will all be allowed to officially worship me.
Just gotta figure out how to scratch some 1/24 scale tracks.

Don't give up on that one Justin. It's just too damn cool man.
From the first look.......I think you could take a 1/35 scale duece and a half, a bunch of plasticard and some styrene strips and scratchbuild it. Like I said, it's just too damn cool to pass on.
Besides, could you imagine that hydrolic arm with a big a** saw blade on the end? How sick is that?

Hopefully someone will release one of those in styrene soon. I can't see paying $160 for something like that.

I'd use a 5 ton truck rather than a duece and a half though. I've been thinking about scratching something like that too, and since it's mostly straight armor plates with no curves it shouldn't be too hard.

Start with this guy (about $20 retail) and work from there:

I'm happy with a copter spotter type thing. Being mobbed by zombies as it takes off.

But I'm thinking I'm just not "out there" enough.

It needs something more. What is bad? Zombies are! What else? Nazis are!
Zombie Nazis!

thats better. Zombie Nazis on the Moon?

Wonder how much Apollo moon landers are on ebay?

Nazi zombies on the moon with a moonlander.............you gotta build that moon dune buggy thing too. What an awsomoe idea John-Paul!
Mans last hope for the return of modern life lies with the secret nazi astronauts on the moon keeping the satelites maintained so that we can keep comunications, etc. The last resupply misson included an infected crewmember that no one noticed............

Holy hell man, that's good stuff.

Hehehe, I've just shown my wife (The Minister for War and Finance) this thread and explained to her what we are trying to accomplish. She just walked away giggling, shaking her head and mumbling something incomprehensible about "grown men or kids?"

Mission Accomplished !!

Cheers, D

D......tell me you didn't show a GIRL our private club? Man, after all these plans and hard work if we're gonna let girls in then I'm taking my toys somewhere else.

BTW, my wife is also minister of finance. I simpily reallocate funds from time to time.

Hermon, any idea what that truck in your pic is used for? Maybe a short haul truck for moving those big shipping containers? I wouldn't mind building that joker just like it is.

As for zombie Nazis, Warriors had a 1/35 SS corpse a while back. They've also got a set or two of skulls out there (Warriors).

Now here's a question...if we venture too far into the "nazi zombie" thing, will we be entering "Dust" territory at that point?...I've got a Gunther walker.......

John, I honestly have no idea what the truck was used for. If I had to guess I'd say your idea was close. 4 drive axles and 2 steering axles plus the offroad meats it's wearing would suggest to me that it's some kind of harsh terrain (Alaska) heavy transport made for staying in the ruts and steering around close corners. Dunno exactly but that's my guess. It should be a totally fun platform to build on though.

Bob, the Gunther Walker is one of my fav's. Save that one if you will though.......I sort of had an "alternate history" campaign swimming around in my head for later on. Unless one of you guys wants to start something like that in Sci-Fi for the upcoming year.......I'd for sure sign up for it.

BTW, if anyone wanted to start a Dust campaign or something....this would be my entry.

Yo Justin, if you're still itching to build this kit, here's something that could make your life a little bit easier. Fabbing up the body wouldn't be a big problem but this crane arm thing is pretty cool. A bit pricey but way cool. Check it out.

I have this Revell Willy Hot Rod kit laying around. I am thinking about doing some serious mods to it for this campaign.

Nice choice Tony. If ya can't roll over them, just out run em'.

So, what kind of mods youi got in mind? Stationary flamers on those big honkin' fenders would look cool....along with a weight reduction program.
