Post apocalyptic chemical train
« on: May 07, 2020, 07:54:04 AM »
  Ok....it has been yet another long span since I posted a project here.....well here it is.
As usual, materials consist of cardboard,plastic bitz, foam core, and in this case parts of two toy milk trucks, and a toy battery operated Christmas train and a tin can. I also used a battery powered t-light for the leaking ooze car.

Excellent work.

By the way, have you read The Walking Dead novel with the train (I forgot the title - my local The Works has had two of the four packs of the books a while back).

You could add an alternative train of improvised protected flat cars and use the "rolling board"  style for the game.

That's a really great piece of scratch building. Well done.
Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.
