Well it is 5am and I am having trouble sleeping, so it must be blogging time. Today is another car for "Gaslands" this time a Pick-up truck. Purchased new from Wilkos for £1 or a very little less.
Conversion wise I just added "Microstrip" which is thin machine cut plasticard to keep it all the same thickness. I did try to add it just about on all surfaces to help break up the factory finish, One thing I did not do was add a load to the flatbed.
I could so easily have done and indeed may do in the future but for now I craved the openness and carrying capacity. IF I do add a load I will go for loads that can also be removed as this will offer the greatest Possible variety. You never know we might have one game where a specific cargo... like fuel drums is required. So by keeping as many options as possible I hope to make it as versatile as possible.
It is a little more weathered than the last I make no excuses just to say I was heavy handed. The colours I have kept the same. It is not that I think in a post apocalypse only certain colours will be availiable but more that I know what players are like and they can more easily identify simple block colours. Imaging Keith saying "I have the Blue cars" it is just easier for all concerned.
The last pick shows them both together. It should make an easy cheap force for a game when I do indeed start making the blue ones. NO the red ones do not nessercarily go faster. Some one will ask if I did not say either at club level or on here.
That's it for today. With luck I get some house renovation done.... been without a stove or heating for 4 days. Living on Soup, take a ways and hot water bottles (but not eating the lkast ones!
But Oven was delivered last night so things may be looking up!
