Hey guys heres my take on a custom Armored steel conversion Humvee used for Zombie killing in a post apoc setting.

PS relatively new to model building so my first attempt at Kit bashing.I used two Academy M1025 kits for the project

Nice what-if HMMWV you have created.  I often wondered about making a 6X6 HMMWV so that it could perform roles similar to the 1.5t 6X6 used by the U.S. Army during and after WW2.  An ideal prime mover for a small howitzer, mortar, or perhaps an anti-aircraft gun system mounted in the back (like the M16 MGMC but with wheels). 


You should be able to hot-link the images from your flickr account to load and display in your post.  If you need assistance, I or any of the other moderators would be happy to assist you.  The other option would be to upload several of the images from your own PC to the forum but there are limits on the format, file size and number of images to attach to each post.

I built a 6-wheel humvee myself. I took a more Special Forces approach to mine, inspired by the Perentie. Love yours though, it looks a lot more armoured than my effort.

Awesome conversion - although the poor guy in the back is stuck out in the open during a zombie attack!

Where did you get the crates and supplies?

That looks really good! :smiley: :smiley:

As others have said, would work just as well as a Perentie-style Special Forces vehicle, too. ;)

I named it the Scorpion (two pincers at the front,six "legs" and a stinger at the back.The tail gun is to provide cover when loading supplies or doing recon or scavenging.The rear gunner can scoot over the metal mesh on the roll cage and enter the vehicle for cover through the front turret.The twin 50's is the Nemesis killer for the bigger mutated mofo's and anti vehicle defense against other threats.The rear gun is mounted on a spare wheel swinging jig that can be swung out of the way to open rear when loading bigger cargo.
