After an extended period of not doing very much hobby-wise, inspiration came from watching the first season of "The Mandalorian."

I liked the idea of droid-operated vehicles, like the taxi in the first episode and the cargo skiff later on, and wondered if it would be possible to create one myself…

I now no longer need to wonder, as the answer is a resounding "Yes!" And it was kitbashed from a bunch of crap I had lying around.

See my latest blog post for details:

Nice work. I can just hear the guy in the back yelling, "This is not the way!! Take 5th Avenue!"

The first series of the Mandalorian has been an inspiration to me too, just not so physical!
I now sport an IG-11 in my figure collection!

Very cool, you remind me that I need to make some suitable SF vehicles.

Great stuff! Please post pictures when it's painted!

Thanks all. The vehicle has now had a spray undercoat, so now just requires a suitable paint scheme. As my not-Stormtroopers require transportation, after this is finished, I will need to address that. Going to go for a heavily armoured APC, but nothing so obvious as a Rhino knockoff. And already got my eye on the container that will be used.

Nice work. A well worn dull yellow would seem to be a good fit for a vehicle like this.
