I hope to have a Kickstarter for some of these.

Nice models, what are the sources (the general direction of this thread is where you can source vehicles ^__^).

Spotted these today in the new Cars 3 toys in the local Big W, they're nice and banged up looking with chains and dents and trophies already on them.





Think I'll take along a mini for scale tomorrow to look again. With regular exhausts instead of those crazy exhaust horns, an armoured grill to cover the mouth on the front, maybe a ram over the bumper and of course ab properly rusty paintjob could be a great vehicle.

Was also the Rambulance

I always liked finding a good toy to convert

They could do with putting a better photograph of the basic bus, the roof does not fit due to warping.

Edited as noted below the roof is not warped, it is just a shadow.

That's not warping, that's a shadow. It looks like the bus is one piece, including the roof, but the light source is behind the model. Either way, they could do with a better photo.

I'm with Bandit - modify toys. Old Superkings cars with tougher cross country tyres look good - 3 examples below







Corgi 1/50 are also great, especially the trucks and buses



And I'm with UVS, I love the Grendel buggy, again particularly if you put some meaner tyres on and a decent bumper

It's not big, or clever, but let's do it anyway

That Corgi bus is great (I recognise the GW Ork front armour).

Nobody seems to have mentioned Airfix - their 1/48 Coyote, Land Rovers and quad bikes for Afghanistan would all be suitable as a basis for modification. They seem to be OOP at the moment but are still available on eBay.

Good point (other 1/48 scale vehicles are available).
Empress does a 28mm crew pack for the Airfix kits: Brit16.
