Very nice model Pete. I've mine based and undercoated with crew and just waiting for some paint. Not long now.
Best wishes,
Helen

10 or so GHQ N scale "transition era" vehicles to convert for a retro Car Wars look and feel. I got rockets and such from various micro armour kits to ease the conversion. :)

Sounds interesting - make sure to start a thread (and stick with it :P). Even if it's slow burn.

Thanks! I will. I really love those models, and have great plans. Halfway through my current batch of GHQ catalogue models, and then I can start them.   Delivery truck first!

More a vessel really. 2 LCM Mk I, 1 LCS and a Vietnam river boat, all 28mm, all in resin from Barrage Miniatures. Very nice. :)

The LCMs are the result of a suggestion to them that they produce one to match their existing range and they agreed. Just a few months later I have my Landing Craft for Norway or Western Desert action. :-*

Picked up a couple of vehicles in Hamleys at lunchtime. Both are pictured with a Hasslefree figure for scale

There's a submersible from the new Jurassic Park movie



and an odd bus from the "Pull back London collection" which has the Hamleys brand on it




I figure the submersible will be useful for an SF EVA type vehicle and the bus looks usable and should fit in with some of my other oddly shaped SF vehicles ;D

The "bus" is actually loosely based on, and painted like a Tube (underground/subway/metro) train

That makes a lot more sense. I thought they were taking liberties with London buses, but I haven't been in the place in years so wasn't sure if it was some weird tourist thing ;D

1:43 diecast model from GMP found on eBay.  Will serve as a Car (3 Ratings) in 7TV2e.  Of course, it's going to need a lot of weathering before it really looks like the POS Murphy was driving in the movie.

Blimey, no-one's posted in here for so long I've got a warning!

It wasn't very recently, but my eldest, who I used to call 'Orc Junior' on here 10 years ago when I used to talk about our Warhammer/LotR/40K games and has now grown up and moved out and is living with his fiance, came home for a visit sometime before lockdown started, and brought me a bag with some parts from a Mini kit that he'd found at a charity shop - no box, instructions, transfers, paint or glue, just some sprues in a bag. A couple of the pieces were cracked but nothing too egregious. He thought I could use for parts, and probably build some kind of Ork warmachine from it.

He's right of course. It's (I've since found out) a 1:32 scale Airfix Mini Cooper S (I found a thread about this kit on a blog from 2012 here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234916642-airfix-mini-cooper-132/). I have no particular interest in modern cars, and it's completely the wrong scale for anything I might want to do anyway - but the floor pan is a similar size the old Ork Trukks (by 'old', I probably mean the '90s-'00s ones). So, now I'm going to try to make an Ork Trukk out of it... there will perhaps be sporadic updates over in the 'Workbench' forum, and eventually it may even turn up in 'Future Wars'.
