HOLY SHITBALLS that looks amazing!
I also picked up a Hiyah Predator... for reasons.
Also looking to do something like this...as I've found a reasonably priced humvee. Just waiting on shipping for everything.
I'll just need: the mine thingy on the front, a push bar, a spare tire, some gasoline cans, ammo cans, misc. equipment. No idea where to find any of that... and I don't have a 3D printer.
Looks like he's gonna get a DM. But isn't he up to his eyeballs in Hind parts? Or is that someone else?Pickelhaube makes the "mine thingy" as well. He can hook you up with most of what you need. Then source the gas cans, gear etc from various 1:18 toy lines, accessories, etc.
PTE makes a 4 seat buggy and an APV straight out of the PLA’s inventory.So I went with 1/18 Joy Toy Chinese Military PLA infantryman instead of OpFor. I need to find a moderately priced (not hundreds of dollars) vehicle that would fit the chinese military themes. I've checked ebay and they want $288+ for something like that in 1/18. Fucking nuts.
Pretty sexy. That one yours? The one I bought is missing the machine gun on top and the antennas. I'll have to find replacements...Yeah it cleans up nicely (or dirties up?)
It is definitely on the SMALL side though.
Anyone have a suggestion for quality 1/18 weapon slings?
Yeah I have one of those two.. really I feel like they're almost the same size. But that sucks that you were bamboozled.. was it on eBay or somewhere else where you can get your money back?So I had ordered a 1/18 tank...the seller sent me 1/18 armored vehicle. Not even remotely the same. I ended up keeping it, because a need a 1/18 enemy vehicle, but that pissed me off. I left him a bad review for showing one thing and shipping another. I'm in the process of repainting it now.

And it was missing pieces to boot!
I got the same set. This is the vehicle I grabbed to go with them. It fits beautifully with this team. I don’t know why the price keeps going up. I got the dongfeng for 70 bucks. I’m going to upgrade the turret and I need to grab some stickers from bad mother tattoos as well. But hope this helps
Yea all of a sudden the price exploded. That is evil bay tho. Front seats and rear troop carrier part are fine as is. You have to mod the 2 back seats though ( shave them down ) if you want to fit 2 guys sitting. Not much maybe 25 min of knife work and that thing is goldenThat Dongfeng does look cool.. $70 sounds good, $199.. yikes!!
I do need to get those Chiner soldiers though. I wish we'd get proper Russian figures, but these will have to do.
yea bro Ali express has em for 125. Still to high imo. It’s all die cast reminds me of the old 21st century Bradley’s and troop carriers. If I see another one for 80-100 bucks with shipping included I’m gonna pull the trigger myself. You won’t be disappointed. Their aren’t many companies who make legit vehicles in that old BBI /21st century style anymore, that’s why the prices are so dumb on after market. I’m still shocked no one has stepped up to fill the void.Will have to keep my eyes out for a drop in price...
Looking good brother. I’ve always wanted this one to make a sweet custom of ever since I saw diglers back in the day. Maybe I’ll make an order after covid dies down. I missed out on it back in the day
