Scratch built MRAP with full working suspension.
I have been working on this project for over a year off and on. So long I managed to blow out a headlight and loose the wiper blades along the way. So I am just going to post her up. This, except for the wheels and machine gun and crew is completely from scratch. There were a bunch of exterior bits from the scrap box. This is the first model that I sketched and cut out all of the body panels. The windows are from a plastic supply store. When I first saw them I said “oh cool MRAP windows”. This is what really got me going on this project. I also wanted to see if I could design a MRAP that was halfway a descent presentation of something that could have been. The interior is a basic transport. Soooo, here is the story. We had orders to pick up and insert this patrol deep into the badlands. We never could figure out what country they were from. They didn’t say a word. But they were well armed. After hours of driving across the desert we dropped them off at the designated location. We never saw or heard about them again. I hope they did well.
That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
I hope you enjoy the madness.
