Based on the Italeri Hemtt I added scratch build armor around the truck bed, wire mesh screens on all the windows, "home made" bull-bars and lots of guns & storage. And flood lights along the sides for when stuck out overnight on a scavaging run.

Always interesting to see the post-apocalypse builds and this one is really well done.  I had a go at making a similar gun truck out of the M939 5-ton but it wound up scrapped.

Very cool looking and a great build.

Maybe the Zombie apocalypse isn't here but the road version is. I'd like one of these bad boys for the downtown commute. This would put a few blanky-blanky drivers in their rightful place.

Nice work.

Nah, too awkward to park at the office. You need an M-ATV or up armoured Humvee for that :)

Love it!  Especially all those pintel-mounts  :)  Can't help thinking that the rear hydraulic arm should have some nasty great claw on its business end, though  ;)
