TMA's resident mad scientist is at it again. And this time he's really outdone himself by creating a true TimMee Frankenstein. Included with the photos are his laboratory notes...
I wanted to make a six-wheel APC. I had a broken XM177, and one missing its wheels. I sawed the rear panel off one, a the other in two in front of the rear wheel well, and spliced them together with sheet styrene and hot glue.
I was stumped for a long time on armament. None of the available turrets looked right. Looking at real world APCs, I noticed that a lot of them have a remote-operated heavy machine gun instead of a turret. So, I added a pintle-mounted gun looted from a PP jeep.
I capped the 2nd turret hole with a piece of 1/16 inch sheet styrene, cut to fit. I think it turned out pretty well.
Indeed it did. Reminds ya of the Stryker, doesn't it? This blogger wants a dozen of them...AT LEAST!!!
Thank you, Mr. Mad Scientist.
