The Colonel's New Armoured Staff Car
« on: October 17, 2019, 10:42:32 PM »
A proud Colonel Philpot with his New Guard Batman view his new Armoured staff car outside of his Bellevue Hill property...


Here's the armoured box made from 0.5mm and 1.0mm sheet styrene, washers, wire, toothbrush head coloured ring and a Vickers from my spare parts box (can't remember the maker)...


The finished vehicle...


Some 'historical' fluff and more pictures are on the TSOG blog...

Cheers!

I like it. Never thought of using washers for armoured vision ports, good idea!
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

You're not expecting the colonel to fire his own Vickers are you?

Thanks Again Guys!

Fastolfrus Colonel Philpots favourite firearm after his Elephant Gun is the Vickers...he felt there was nothing better in the morning than mowing down some Marxists is the streets of Sydney with his Vickers...
