  1. Looks good, you’re going to need a bigger shelf!
  2. Little bit more. Zombie 1-32 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-30 by phil da greek, on Flickr The Zombie screen installation complete, just needs some weathering, the end is getting closer. The screen is actually part of the armour from a Hobby Boss Canadian Leapord. Floodlights on, next step is the sump guard then the doors and the body. Thanks for looking.
  3. I agree & that might happen yet, thanks!
  4. Bit more……… Zombie 1-26 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-27 by phil da greek, on Flickr Cab roof box on & secure. Looks big, out of scale perhaps but when the shed / body / habitation pod is on it looks better, like a step up to it. Then something I was really keen to have on, a roll cage come brush guard affair to protect the cab. Made out of brass rod this was initially a stand alone project following some careful measuring & drawing. That didn’t work, not even close, so I’ve gone the route I suspected I would go, build it on the vehicle a piece at a time. Zombie 1-28 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-29 by phil da greek, on Flickr Happy to say in real life it’s much “squarer” & in line to the vehicle. Thanks for looking.
  5. Bit more…….. Zombie 1-22 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-23 by phil da greek, on Flickr The pod in place albeit temporary. It looks big but the overall height of the pod is 60mm, it gives a 54mm survivor some headroom & storage space. I was going to have storage on top but I think that will make it look far too top heavy. I’m thinking maybe a solar panel or two on top & leave it at that. The post apocalypse world will probably be pretty dark, so some lighting is called for. Zombie 1-24 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-25 by phil da greek, on Flickr 5 spots mounted on a bar on the cab roof facing forward for illumination. As always, thanks for looking.
  6. Bit more then, time to attach the crew cab to the chassis, throughout I’ve been careful (as always) to make sure everything touches where it should & I use a spirit level to make sure everything is plumb, square & level. The cab connects to the chassis with four mounting points or pins that sit on & not into the chassis. I was a bit naffed off to find the cab had a definite wobble when sitting it on the chassis. The cab has a separate floor pan that slips inside the cab, I suspect my fat fingers pushed this pan in to far in one corner creating said wobble. In my defence the fit is less than perfect and the destructions are a little confusing. The cab also sits low on the chassis causing the wheels to foul on the underside of the mud guards. So some shimming was called for, white plastic in the picture below. Zombie 1-14 by phil da greek, on Flickr Filling & filing. Sanding & swearing. Got there in the end, cab & chassis are connected. Zombie 1-15 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-16 by phil da greek, on Flickr Time to work on the habitation pod. Plastic card, rulers, pencil & a scribing tool that looks like a dentist’s torture tool. Zombie 1-18 by phil da greek, on Flickr Zombie 1-17 by phil da greek, on Flickr The rear window, scribed out & eventually painted a gloss smoky brown to simulate the glass. Better have a door to get in I guess….. Zombie 1-19 by phil da greek, on Flickr The story so far, thanks for looking in.
