While I waited for the tissue paper tarp on the back of the second truck to dry, I ended up building a Grav Ambulance for my medic to hoon around in. The ambulance uses basically the same techniques as the normal truck, but obviously it's a different shape. The anti-grav pods are made from rectangular section plastruct tubes and 1mm plasticard, the flashing light is a small googly eye.
I intend to design and print decals for these vehicles, but I won't have access to a high quality colour printer until next week when I got back to work, so that'll have to wait.
Anyway, here are some pics of the three completed 15mm scratch built trucks. Paint is a mix of Vallejo, Citadel and Tamiya. Part of the plan is to have the trucks colour coded to their squads; Green Squad drives a green truck, red squad a red and so forth.
Why not have a go at building your own trucks? It's really not very hard, and it's terribly rewarding!
Next time, Hippo fans!
