Post apocalyptic water merchant’s truck



I found this cool truck in toys r us from “Fast lane” for about $7 I painted it up as post apocalyptic water merchant’s truck straight out of the box. Toys are a great source for terrain and vehicles.

May I come with a small suggestion? Add some wear and tear. It looks great, no doubt there. But in my mind the post apoc vehichles are not exactly finetuned hehe.

New follower here and congrats on the nominations mate

Very nice toy bash there - have you got a photo of what it looked like beforehand?

As I already said, you've done a great job but I need to know something. You said you've painted it right out of the box but, have you disassembled it or you simply undercoated it and then painted the truck as a whole?

Gnotta (love the things you have done and I am going to steal some of your ideas for sure)
The truck comes apart very easily, and I did take it apart but ended up putting back together and painting it as it was so you could do in either way. The reason I took it apart was to take out the interior seats and dash to use for something else(I knew I was going to paint the windows black so why waste some good seats) Then I primed it and painted it i was attempting a new technique but it did not work so I think I did it wrong but it came out nice anyways.

@ Bandit86: When we talk about art it's not stealing, it's "taking inspiration"!!! ;)
Feel free to use all the ideas you want, I'm already stealing, ehm, I mean, taking inspiration of some yours!! :P
