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.
