I picked up several of the First Corp jalopies at Historicon and plan to mix them in with the Eureka vehicles for Mad Max games. I am looking for weapons I can stick on them, like machine-guns and rocket launchers. The stuff I see easily available (other than the Eureka stuff, which I already have) seems to be for Matchbox-scale vehicles. I am looking for items that a close to 1:48 than 1:64. Are there any good sources out there?

Thanks,

Buck

Stan Johansen has some vehicle weapons and accessories, too.

Perhaps Ramshackle Games? Some of their stuff is 20mm, but some is and I quote "nominally about 1/64 scale."

Mind you, I have their 20mm car conversion pack, and I think it would be ok with a lot of 1:64 vehicles. The guns are fairly chunky and oversized.

More importantly, they sell a set of giant speakers to go on a truck. As we all know, giant speakers are an essential part of post apocalyptic road warfare.

They also sell 28mm weapons, if you really want to go big.

Quite helpfully, a lot of the photos have rulers besides the parts.

(Oh yeah, they also offer free worldwide shipping)

The Assault Group has a range of WWII and modern weapons available, though they usually come in packs with 10 of the same weapon, which is a bit problematic if you want diversity.

Thanks, all. I took a look at Company B, and they have some early machine-guns that will work. I checked out Assault Group before posting, but everything is WWII to the present. I was really looking for something more WWI or interwar. Thanks for the help.

Jedburgh:

Right. I have a bunch of the Eureka weapons on my cars. I was trying to find something just a little different for variety.

Sorry! I was thinking near future(?) Mad Max, the movie, not the 1934 Mad Maximilian alternative history.

Briiliant concept, but thus far I have resisted its siren call.
