More work on it this week, with a couple of air horns and working on a platform on the back for the 50 cal.
thinking of a motorised turntable with a seat and pedals on a frame with the gun mounted to it as well...

That is so chrome it not true!

I love every speck of rust. I can see why the 32' ford coupe is so popular as a project car as it is an attractive shape.

Hi Gastanksian, thanks for your words but your quote on (Hetzer's Cranky Frank) page about gremlins and the MOJO fades is so true...
Things was not looking right with it so I walked away from it for a time (and at the end of the day it's just a kit bash...) so I did other things, then one day I pulled some of it apart and reworked it, so here it is.

That looks pretty cool, nice work. I have found that when I work with something for longer, like Cranky which requires loads of scrathbuilding, a slight setback can halt whole project. That's not necessarily a bad thing, when working with something very intensely you come bit blind for your own work so little break can do wonders. Once you return to that project, things look fresh and solution for problem causing setback is usually right there. And after all, model making should be fun and not forced.

That looks really awesome, I like to think that your kit is a vehicle built by ex members of the Humungus gang post MM2, long before MMBT. Mad Max 2.5 if you will.

The cross would be an indication it's been built by those guys since Humungus used nazi symbols and the car itself would be made of the Mack Coolpower that Max crashed.

I hear what you are saying and it's all true, model making should be fun and not forced. I could not not have said it any better than that...

The funny thing is that the chassis was left over from MM2 Mack build, it would make a good story because you don't know what happens to the marauding survivors.
