7TV Apocalypse – Modding Die Cast Vehicles Part 1

Continuing my forays into the post apocalypse!

I’ve build up a fairly sizeable collection of 1/43 to 1/48 scale diecast toy cars to mod up.  Using various bits and pieces including some very useful Tamiya plastic sand bags and some really old Gorkamorka sprues alongside the new range of resin bits from Crooked Dice.

The vehicles were sourced mainly from discount stores (Poundworld Plus, The Works etc.), but also from China via Ali-Express.cars1cars7cars8

The first one on the production line is intended for my cast/warband of PA militia.  The base toy here is a Teamsterz Mobile Police HQ truck (approx. 1/43 scale).

Relatively simple conversion, although I had to remove the ventilation fans and hatchway (now added to the bits box) from the roof before adding some resin stowage bits from Crooked Dice.  The turrent and gunner are also from the new 7TV Apocalypse range by CD.
