This 'Thing' was borne out of a completley failed tamiya Porsche 962c kit. Nothing went right on the build and it seemed like everytime I touched it, something else went wrong. So I tossed it back in the box and chalked it up to experience.

Then, an idea was spawned and this is the result.

It's a wacky sort of Mad Max meets Dick Dastardly, in the wake of a nuclear apocolypse, 'defend' your self against the mutants' vehicle.

Nothing was measured, everything was 'imagineered' and left a little 'rough around the edges' to get the effect I wanted.

Anyay, Just thought I'd share it with you guys too and give you a laugh or heart attack.

'They're coming to take me away, ho, ho, ha, ha, he he, to funny farm, where life is beautiful ALL the time'

I'd go back in the Army if they would let me drive one of those. Nice job Al.

Um, Al! I think your straight jacket is a bit too tight. LoL Great work! I love the insanity of this build. Anything is totally possible when it's plastic. :)

Well, Porsche, the man was involved in tank design in WW2. A competitor against what we know as the Tiger.

Back on topic. COOL!

Very inventive, Al. A great way to clear abandoned projects off the shelf and cleanse the accumulation in the parts stash box.

Great work.
