So what did I do to have this you may ask, conversion is the answer! This has been a somewhat involved project lasting a few evenings and most of yesterday afternoon.
Next up was the Objective Gunner Protection Kit, or (O-GPK). This is an extra armored little turret on top of the truck with a heavier weapon on it. I built this specific model with a roof on it which is just one of tha many options and variations with HMMWV turrets.
I made these with the original TOW turret ring (with the controls and all shaved off) with a card floor on it, like the below picture.
Next up were the walls. These are somewhat thin steel plates with very thick, framed bulletproof windows. decided that I would make the walls from the same card I used earlier, then cut window slots in that then add the clear sheet plastic after it was solid. This resulted in the part seen below the white bit of paper in the picture below.
Here are some pictures of different angles. Note, I sill had not framed the windows in on the sides.
|A test fit.|
I then painted the entire model in Khaki with the usual highlights etc.
