Hi Folks

After a long time away, I've begun to build AFV Club's quad 50 guntruck, Nancy.
Keep it simple I thought.......so I didn't.....


The chassis is going together fairly well......it's a bit of a pain when you've not built a kit in a few years.....


I'm also planning on giving it a crew, mostly scratchbuilt I think, also some Bravo-6 parts may show up along the way


I've done plenty of research, one of the most useful being this site, especially when there have been a good number of builds of it already.

However.....

I have 2 questions right now (there will be more.....) as some of the old posts about Nancy and other guntrucks in general are missing photos and links are out of date...

1: the rear bumper of the kit is not correct for an M35A1? I can't quite figure out what it should look like. Any links to good photos?

2: The passenger seat is folded down in the Eduard set, yet I think Dave Willets on here (or maybe it was Jim Lewis) said the passenger seat was removed? Can this be confirmed?

any help would be appreciated.

I'm going to get this one done........

You might try looking at Jim Lewis' site Guntruck.

Cheers Gary. There's only the gallery there now. Pretty sure there used to be some WIP pictures at one point

I'm more of a figure modeller than anything else, and done some heavy conversions before.

I love seeing Vlad's in-progress sculpts for the Bravo-6 figures, and asked him if he could post a photo of the armature he uses, which he very kindly did, so thought I'd try it the same way.

Unlikely I'll be sculpting any heads......
