More WWII Vehicles!

Post by PhiMa on Tue Aug 11, 2009 4:01 pm

Well, as all of you know (I think) I'm in a WWII phase, and I've continued making more vehicles for the troops. After I finished my Deuce and a Half, I started on Axis vehicles, seeing as the Allies now have plentily.

Deuce and a half:

The one is a mod of the Indy Truck, and based off Ewok Masters.

BMW R75:

Not my best work, to be honest. Based off DP's.

Kubelwagen:

Turned out pretty good I think. Still WIP-ish, I still need to get rid of the old grey and other minor flaws. And, of course, based of RoA's.

Well, I'm now up to 5 vehicles and around 15 troops in total. Now for BF and BA...Enjoy! Comments are appreciated!

All look pretty cool, especially like the deuce and half. You've gotta make a Spitfire or Avenger now. Wink

I have 6 of them, 1 from a scout speeder and 5 from the BA Germans. I removed them because the Wehrmacht didn't use that large backpacks but they are very useful for these bikes! Smile

Kubelwagen For The Win!!!! That thing is EPIC!!! Hola Wow! I love how you did the front and the mud flaps! Also I like the face you used for the Nazi ridding in the sidecar of the motorcycle, Razz and the added spare tire lookes good too. As for the truck, at first I thought it was jus the Indy truck. Razz But I then saw you totally changed the front, and added a whinch! Overall great job Phima! Smile Fordo Yo!

The BMW is quite nice, but the Kubelwagen takes the iced confection. The window technique works just as well on German vehicles as does it on Jeeps. The vehicle's passenger area is splendidly designed, the room sunken into the chassis like a real automobile would be. The detail is exceptional, as well.

Bravo!

I love the side's greebles on the Kubelwagen! Perhaps make it a little more shapely? It looks a tad square, not to say it isn't well-done.

Brandon: Thanks, but remember I got the mudflap idea of RoA, so he gets credit of course. Not only did I change the front of the Indy Truck (but it did take a lot of work) but I also lengthened the back by using two of those cloth/paper covers.

Sial: Thanks! Although I can't fit four people into the passenger area, cause of the arms.

80-0: I'm not all to pleased with the side greebs, and I agree, it is a bit blocky, but that's very hard to fix, and the Kübelwagen was blocky.

ABL: Thanks!

Again, thanks for all the comments so far!

Cool! I like seeing new Kubelwagens because I don't see new ones often. Now, make a half track! Razz

Doing a BMW R75 from experience I know getting the wheel right is a B-I-T-C-H, that's my only complaint, your wheel is a bit too far up and the car isn't long enough. Look at some reference and you might see what I mean.

-Thanks LBR! And I might, I have to see what pieces I have left. I'm slowly having that feeling of taking some sets apart...

-Thanks again 80-0, that you have that much faith in me, but I'm running out of bricks.

-Yes, the Wheel was a bleep. I would've done it the way you did it, but I didn't have another one of those small tires. And how is the front not long enough?

-Thanks Gerrard!
