I think a suitable subtitle to this one would be, "Go on, Sir, You tell 'im!" 

This is a scratchbuild which has taxed the spares boxes, but it has been rather enjoyable. The idea is that after the battle is over, there needs to be a period of tidying up.

So, a vehicle of some sort, a trailer for the recovered scrap/salvage, and, in this case, a means of finding said salvage.

Hence, a drone to overfly the scene and spot the goodies.

I was pressured by persons anonymous to put this lot into a small diorama. So without further adoodoo's here we go.

First off, a birds eye view of the scene. A lot of the kreiger action takes place in Australia. So here we are in the desert, next to a water purification plant.

Not quite a moisture farm on Tatooine, but not far off and somewhat derelict to boot.

And here's why I said it's, "Go on, Sir, You tell 'im!" I bought the Fighting suit ready finished from the bay. 

I have some others, but they are in snow camouflage. Not really suitable in this case.

This vehicle is totally scratchbuilt. Bits of various tanks, Humvee etc, and the crane was HO scale.

The round tanks in the background were Hugo Boss Orange aftershave. The RH one was originally in my old Misfit build from Saudi.

I'm not sure how this would tow both trailers, but it could probably happen.

The drone was a small scale Transall. Both trailers are scratchbuilt too. The mudguards are Airfix Tiger tank turret parts .

The settling tank? seen here was a ship display stand. The springs are brushes for electric motors. 

The cones in the middle were from torches and the centre thing is an upsidedown 1/24th Pillar drill.

I also took pictures outside in case it made them sharper.

The drone landing gear should be removed for transport. Someone will be on a fizzer! Will it hit the trailer?

A better view of the motor brushes here. Perhaps if the tank was full of water, they'd help with heat dissipation?

And an eye level view.

From the other end. I wonder what the outcome will be?

Thanks for looking and your comments are always welcome. As are offers of money or chocolate.

Have a look in the Work in Progress section for build details.

Cheers, Pete

Stonking piece of whimsy Pete - this view in daylight looking weirdly 'real':
