COOL !! Very unique for sure, nice kit bash. It looks like a real world design that could be very useful in forest fire fighting.  :smiley: :smiley:

@ Old Wombat/Guy - Excellent back story to match your great model and mad skills.  :smiley:

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

Superb finish. I would love to seebmore of your build ( I've looked I can't findbthem

If you mean "WIP" photo's, I'm afraid there weren't that many done. Started off as a GB build & a lack of time meant I had to focus on trying to build it, not photograph it.

Didn't get it finished for the GB, either, & I was one of the moderators! :o

The build is, however, fairly basic; follow the instructions for the tank hull & Astaco Neo cabin & arms. LED spotlight units (2 x front, 1 x rear, with little black dots for cameras) were just vision ports from the spares box, water spray units (red rectangular-ish boxes) are some other vision blocks from something, headlights from one of the several Stryker carcasses I have in the spares box, the sirens are just some odd bits of Stryker (I have lots of Stryker bits in the spares box), clear sprue shaped & polished & painted for the red & blue light bars & the flashers on the rear of the arm unit, the LED light bar above the double-arm cabin mesh & the tiny front indicators, the rear light units are just rectangular styrene tube filled with Aves Apoxy sculpt & shaped to fit & under-painted silver so the lights would stand out a bit.

It's really just a case of build the main bits & stick bits on where they look right. :-[

That came out great! When I first looked at the first finished picture, I misread the name as Kalangadoq, wheich seemed like both a great name, and the sound it makes.  ;)

Kalangadoq certainly sounds like the noise it'd make ;) .... Not sure I could get Kalangadoo to change its name, though. ::)
