The Hellhound Truck is done! Just in time, right before my usual collapse of focus and interest, I might say. This thing came out OK and anyone wanting something fun to do, check out Dave Taylor's truck and this one, steal the plans and have at it. It's satisfying to say the least. Before showing you the last rundown of this truck, here is what I started with:
This is by no means a masterpiece of building and painting and nothing makes that more obvious then the following close up pictures. Sometimes I am shocked to see how bad a paintjob really is when I see a close up photo enlarged on the screen. Anyhow, here's a sideshot

The mech Rough Riders

Here are the snipers and a Priest:
