Anyone here ever made anything like this (with either wheels or blades/skis) for their post apocalyptic raiders?

Or for your aliens (Martians)?

QUESTIONS:

* If have made something like that, got pics of your work?
* And what design(s) did you use?
* Did you make it to ride a dry lake, an ice sheet, or something else?
* How many guys does it seat?
* Did you add any cool weapons to it?
* Or did you just add blades to cut down your prey?

Thanks,

Dan

Fun stuff…I thought the first image said Toe of the World which I thought was a really odd title :)

For a sand barge I would include an encapsulated front/top so the blown sand does not fill up the craft

I didn't know there was an Anime version (some show called "Secret of the Cerulean Sand"):

The Eldar bits I found would probably end up making stuff with this general look:

You could probably borrow the Thaniras Elves stuff from Uncharted Seas, too.

Tharinas Elves? I'll check it out.

Thanks!

Gorka Morka had the Grot Cutta.

Here is a scratch built version.

Wow. I think this whole non-water sail vehicle idea could be even more fun than I thought initially.

To Make that model from the first link Dan, Id be tempted to by a cheap ww2 bomber kit and use that, it would give most of the components I think.

Nice ideas

"Thread Rejuvenation"

I like that!

It beats starting a new thread and then transferring all the cool links to the new one. Plus, the valuable suggestions you guys have offered so far are absolutely timeless, so why make people repeat themselves?
