The high tech Rat Patrol

Found another of the Matchbox M-ATV toys. Now I've got two that will serve as the transports for the scout squad. Cramming a fire team into each truck does not seem too bad.

I've got to start gearing up for games at Cincy Con in March - its 'only' four months away!

Progress report on the RAH-66 conversion

Did a little more work with the RAH-66 Comanche toy I picked up at Wally Mart a couple of weeks ago.

The Comanche in the early stage of painting. Still has the landing gear!

The toy comes with die cast landing gear. Its okay, but to me, it makes the helo look a lot like an AH-64. The real Comanche has retractible gear. So I grabbed my trusty Dremel tool and hacked off the main gear and the tail wheel. 

Now's we're cooking with hydrogen!

Nice shot of the tail rotor inside the tail assembly.

The business end showing off the rocket pod, ATGM and nose cannon.      
I'm liking the mean look you get when the gear is removed.
