Go take some pictures Tim.

As for the Turret DF it wouldnt be possible due to the low roof of the vehical half your body would be over the roof so whatever turret you designed would look way out of perportion to the rest of the vehical. So instead we are making a twin gun mount that will be operated from inside the vehical. It will only be used durring insertion or extraction of team members to lay cover fire. I wish I could put a 360* turret on like I have on my tank but it just wont work this time.

I thought about puting an adjustable seat in there the the person could sit down. You could controle the hight and have something that looked ok. But then there wouldnt be ebough room to transport personal.

I actually thought it looked badass with all the rust and scars etc. Are you planning on bondoing the whole thing and painting it?

slim and shady

It's mostly fiberglass, just a little bondo to smooth over the roughness of the matt. I am doing the whole thing, not right up to par though but enough to be respectable. Then painting it.

with all the steel and bondo/body fill, mount a winch on the front RR tie...er um...I mean...bumper...........you'll need it to pull it up the field :D:D


Looks pretty good so far. You going to mount tank treads on it?

Not much bondo, but a heck of alot of fiberglass! At least that wont punch out when the paint starts flyin like the bondo would have.

08-30-2010, 03:33 PM
fiberglass will do wonders lol

08-30-2010, 05:22 PM
