The White Scout car is a favorite of mine. This will be good. Are you going to slap wings and rockets on the torpedoes to make them "aerial" torpedoes?

PT conversion kit looks like perfect source for air defense parts.  Switching PT boat intended parts to land use is resourceful.

OK, my mojo's slipped a bit & this build is dragging its @r$e but I've got it sectioned into modules & most of them are built.

Here they are sitting it the box waiting for a small mojo boost & paint.

If all else fails, trial-fit the Bofors onto the back of the Scout Car. If that doesn't get your mojo juices flowing, consult a physician immediately  :o

Nah, it's general life issues getting in the way of being able to sit down & focus, maybe in the next couple of days ... with luck. ;)

Hi, guys! :D

Just to let you know this is still happening I've provided pic's of where I'm at now. :))





The Oerlikon is only sitting there, for now. It's slow going, in dribs & drabs but I'm getting there. :)

However, if there isn't an extension (Hello, mod's! ;) ) there's no way it's going to be finished before the end of the GB. :(

Without adding to your woes, what about having fold down sides like a German Mobelwagen? Raise up the Oerlikon base a bit, fold down the sides and back as an additional platform and then jacks to stabilise the whole thing. Those 20mms need a bit more swing room than the back of a Scout car can really provide.

Passenger seat well could hold ammo drums instead.

Just injecting a little mojo...

You're absolutely correct but this is a field mod using a salvaged weapon on an available platform.

It's extremely imperfect & awkward, which is part of its charm.

Also, this is Phase 2 of what was a 3 phase adaptation (Phase 3 involves losing the skate-rail & the front windscreen).
