Continuing on:













Still working on the body rust & had to take off the rear bumper to do some rust under it that I had forgotten to do earlier.

Before anyone gets too upset by all the rust, I did base it on a number of photo's of RW "working" T3 Transporter tray-top utes; although I will admit that there's more on this than any one of the RW examples.

Still, it is a Zombie Apocalypse vehicle; it's not like it gets stored in a garage overnight & washed & polished every other weekend. ;)

Cheers!  :icon_beer:

After years of kicking around wrecking yards, must say weathering is realistic.  :smiley:
Equipment and figures seem real too.  :smiley:

@Guy/Old Wombat - Great work so far both inside and out and that includes your figures too.  :smiley:

Man, has this build dragged on, or what!? :-\

Anyway, it's 3:45am here & I've finally finished the VW T3 Transporter (base still needs to be done), so there should be photo's tomor ... later today! ;)

I think it looks better in the plastic, the yellows (especially in the rust) seem to have been enhanced it the photo's.

Still, not too shabby! ;)

I hope to have a completed dio base done soon but I have to tidy the work bench first. :-X

This looks well worn, but still ready to keep going.  Nicely done!

looks great! The rust looks good and so does the gear. Is that a sheet of plywood they're carrying?

If you've checked the price of plywood over the last few months, can you only imagine what it'll be worth in Mad Max Times????????????????

Pure.
Laminated.
Gold.

Thank you all very much, gentlemen! :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza:

Yep! :smiley: Actually, there are two sheets of ply* (one is under the Marston mat panels), a sheet of cement fibre board & a sheet of steel, three wood planks, copper, galvanised & poly pipe, & a steel I/H beam.



[*: I really like how these came out, considering they're painted styrene sheet.]
