I have too much time on my hands and glue. While waiting for all of the glue to dry I ran across this. ENJOY! It has some really sweet ideas.

"...TreadHead, I have no idea what you just said. However, feel free to jump in and contribute. For my sake though, please use words with less than two sylables and keep your sentences shorter.

Hermon..."



...My o' my Hermon, your syllabic restrictions would limit me to {apparently} only one syllable per word...I'm afraid even attempting such self-imposed verbal castration would, in effect, be a garrote the creative side of my 'Id' could not navigate with any confidence....of course, you would all then be spared my self-indulgent prosaicism's...........count yourself lucky


Hey!....I'm just kiddin' ya mate. After all, I'm an old Marine, and I'm not quite sure I can even spell the word 'sillabill' .......


@ Keeper:

That is a superb example of a 'Zombie' vehicle! I'm sure you won't hold it against me when I say, your interpretation of the basic 'Aliens' configuration is SUPERB! And, your scratching of the wheels is exceptional to say the least.........nice work pard'
I can't wait to see what your choices will be in regards to armament............



Semper Fi!!

That looks cool.....thick glass = armored glass! Am I remembering correctly - didn't that{or a vehicle like it} have a turret that could traverse from side{for overhead clearance} to top? Not sure if it was aliens or what movie I saw that in so long ago?

LOL...waaaay too much time on one's hands I see! Also, this is why I like flame throwers....a shotgun is fine for toying around but torch the turkey and there's nothing left to get up!

Hey! Justin, I keep looking at your pretty apocolypse car and it is either too pretty or it is just mean as hell I am still waiting for OD to post some more photos of his awsome vehicle. I am at an impasse, I really could use Clint's or OD's suspension to help both of my builds

Ya know...for a sec' there I got the impression you were "hinting" you were going to incorporate the A-10's 30 mike-mike GAU-8's into your vehicles load-out, but being they weigh a serious ton and require something quite similar to the Abrams gas turbine powerplant to move down the road considering the weapon's weight, ammo storage, and feed mechanism's, etc, etc, I can only assume I am going wayyyyyyyyyy out on a limb with my daydreams.................right?



...sounds mega cool tho' ; - )

Had a 4 day weekend and totally relaxed, but that's over{bummer}. Hit a minor snag on how to do the side ribs so the wheel openings look like they could open and still retain structural strength for the build itself...got a plan!

The Justin/OD tires turned out OK. The GATOR glue held after massive amounts being applied initially with two successive apps. that covered and penetrated down through the track cracks. PICS to follow later, I am working on the turret and will install the gun from an Italeri Puma. Looks pretty cool, even if I am the one to say so . Hey Damian what's happening down under havent heard from you in awhile.

Don't worry RIP, I'm still here and keeping a close eye on things !! I am keen to get a couple of other Campaign builds tidied up before I launch into this one as I have big plans here. I'm assembling my goodies and getting my designs straight before I hit the kits. I'm sure there will be a few "field modifications" as I progress, but my basic plan is a dio with the M4 Tractor and a GAZ truck sitting close-by a fortified bunker/command post. I have conferred with our glorious leader and I think I will be starting a dedicated Build Log for my efforts on this one.

You guys are putting in some awesome work already, I'm very jealous and just itching to get going.

Cheers, D

I am just happy to hear that you are still kicking and that you had not fallen to the evil ghoulish horde.

"...The GAU-8 itself weighs 620 pounds (280 kg), but the complete weapon, with feed system and drum, weighs 4,029 pounds (1,828 kg) with a maximum ammunition load. It measures 19 ft 5 in (5.931 m) from the muzzle to the rearmost point of the ammunition system, and the ammunition drum alone is 34.5 inches (88 cm) in diameter and 71.5 inches (1.82 m) long.[5] The magazine can hold 1,174 rounds, although 1,150 is the typical load-out..."


Hey pard'. never mind all that techno' crapola.......I just wanna see some 'GUNS' in that mutha of yours



Oh, BTW....since your using gas turbines as propulsion, you can actually use the exhaust of those babies to fry up some 'Zombie' taters!
