Thanks a ton!

They're 20mm, the vehicles are Hotwheels and the gear is some card, scrap and lead from Stan Johansen.

I goofed around trying to paint Gooses bike, but it seems too small a scale to get the Silver witha blue fade at the bottom....  So I went with the yellow striped.  Those are the plastic bikes from Dark Future, so not too much detail there, but good practice.

Cool. BTW I would say this post should go in the PA forum section, I saw your other post there.

I have found that magnetic tape makes wonderful armor plating. Plus, one can mount the weapons on steel washers and make them swappable. Cotton tufts can be glued to washers and painted as smoke or flames also.

I third that!  I assume you glue them down as normal?  I find rare earth mags do not stick to MB cars...

Oh WOW, Stan's weapons look awesome at that scale!  I have some from "eons ago" for my 25/28mm SF forces (past tense) and they looked good there but even better at this scale!

Garcias,

Glenn

Yes, I glue them with CA (super glue). The magnetic tape/sheet can be cut into shape, carved, and drilled for texture and battle damage.

This is one of the best tips yet!  Very clever idea.

I chopped up an old credit card, but i'm afraid someone may grab my car and try to 'swipe' it!  lol
