Cheap robot kit that led to....

Recommended Posts

Probably 30 years ago now I bought a robot kit from a pound shop.

I believe it was a Revell kit. 

What to do with it? Well, why not make it a logging scout?

But then, what about that war in the Amazon?

Not brilliant but I was happy with it back then. But, surely it needs a back up/service truck.

So I scratchbuilt one. The wheels are resin copies of a Dinky truck wheel.

Looks like this wheel is splitting in two.

The wheels are better on this side.

All a bit rough and ready but I kept it all that time so I must like it! Oh, scale is 1/48th.

That's excellent! The scratch built truck is particularly impressive and the design and the camo have a very dystopian, sci-fi look to it.

Two great builds Pete. I love the design of the support truck.

Thanks guys. This was very early days in my scratchbuilding skills,

so it's a bit basic, but, it does the job.

The wheels were made in the glass fibre shop at Odiham BTW!
