I have heard rumours spoken of vast model kit stashes from the before time...protected by all sorts of terrifying defence systems and guarded by the undead...but it's probably just a story.

 Not the undead - although moderately useful, they aren't cost effective in the long term. Mutant farm animals (Chickens, mainly) are far
 more useful overall. You do have to avoid raising them too far into sentience - one day you've given them thumbs, the next they're demanding maternity leave and paid vacations. (It's the apocalypse. Where do they think they're going to go?)

Is there some way we could get tiking's Suzuki Overload into the group build?
It is not a monster but something that is done out of necessity.

As inspiration it works terrific and as you all say in the thread, right on topic.
I have to say though that it was stated in was built 10 years ago, so as it stands, maybe a bit out of the spirit of things they way I see.
Now.. if he wanted to add to it, redo some of it.. different matter.

... built 10 years ago ...

I think tiking was saying that his new 'Suzuki Overload' build was a fresh take on that 10-year-old concept.

I did something like this over 10 years ago. I figured I can do again, but better. If it is better, I don’t know. but it is definitely better than the first one I did...

I stand fully corrected.
So if this is a new build, then may as well join the party. Does Tiking want it moved into the GB ?

Tiking says:
tiking,
would you like this to be included in the Post Apocalyptic Group Build?
'Buzzbomb' says that he can move the thread there if you like: http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=9896.0

Yep saw that.
Perfect opportunity to put the new build into the GB, we still have most of this month to go. Not sure if I can move things. See how we go.

Yeah, well, the VW Transporter ain't gonna make it.

RWS has ... not stopped the build but has delayed it to the point where there's no coming back for the GB.

Once the voting is done I'll request the mod's move it to the Land forum.

Well that is about it. Nothing added, no further requests anywhere so closing it off.
I will lock the Finished thread and get down to organising the polling process.

Thanks for your participation
