slowly slogging my way through the track links. It's really not as bad as it sounds other than being a bit repetitious... if you've ever worked with Magic Tracks then you have a idea.

A little jig I made so both tracks end up uniform:


Adding links until one side is completed:




I definitely think I'll be including tracks on my EOD entry, though I want to make them much larger than this. It's going to be a monster - haha.

Adam, what's in the local water supply to give you insperation like this ? Nice tracks and it gives me too many ideas of my own, kinda like a song you get in your head and can not shut it off any way as Murphy stated you and Hermon are keeping the insanity going.

It's funny you mention that because our local water supply has radium levels above accepted norms. I drink bottled water though, so I can't blame that. Hermon and I have our own trucks going at the moment, but it's going to become a lot crazier once the campaign starts.

Finally got past "the stall" on this and finished! Some of the pictures are a little blurry, but I was in a hurry.

YES! Awesome. That color and painting/weathering makes it look like real steel plates welded together

Hey Adam, super job !! It's just got that veteran Zombie Killer look and feel about it, like it's seen a few campaigns. Maybe we need to come up with a "kills" marking scheme for the EOD campaign . . .

Can't wait to see what you have in store for that build mate.

Congrats and cheers, D

P.S. STRAT !!!

Adam, I've decided the only way I can top your truck is to scatter actual body parts all over mine. Hmm........guess I'll go set some traps now.

Damian: Funny, I thought about painting tick marks on the side to mark successful kills or missions, but got lazy and didn't!

Loobes: Definitely Les Paul!

Hermon: The gorier the better! This summer is going to be a totally zombie infested explosion of styrene.
