No, it should not have the warning lights.

    Oh 5-wide, very nice. Also very accurate, given the scale restraints.

    What is that thing going from the fender up the windscreen? Looks like an airhose or a periscope or something.

  3. J5N 106 months ago | reply

    It's a snorkel exhaust, found on many off-road vehicles.

    It looks like a snorkel. No, seriously.

    Aw, I was beaten to the punch. I was so proud, because I just learned about snorkels last week.

    This looks great!

    Butte... not to sound like a critic or anything... eh, but it looks like it can't hold a driver... Aft is roomy... but that's of little use when the thing aint going anywhere... :/

    looks great! I'm appreciating you train heads and your attention to detail more and more these days. The stripes are great!
    I get the snorkle, but whats with the droid arm on the fender? I cant tell from the ref pic,

  7. gambort 106 months ago | reply

    ^^ OK. This is to head off future comments of the sort. You were polite so you won't get mocked but...

    I don't care that it doesn't hold a driver. I really don't. I haven't since I was a child. If I can fit a driver and not sacrifice the look I will but I'm not a child and I rarely play with my toys.

    ^ The droid arm is suffering from brewers droop in the pic but it's meant to represent a radio antenna.

    Would a black droid arm not look better? Very nicely done, BTW. I really love the light bar that doesn't have lights, and the stripes going across, but I don't like the gap that the yellow cheese creates, could you use a 1x1 plate with a 1x1 tile on top?

  9. gambort 106 months ago | reply

    Black would be more confusing IMO. Tile and plate wouldn't give the clean surface that the cheese slope has. Which is why I used the cheese slope.

    This is so adorable. I'm assuming it's croc-proof?

  11. gambort 106 months ago | reply

    Maybe that's what the snorkle is for ;)

    It is no secret that I like ambulances and it's great to see one from down under. At a first glance it looked a bit odd to me, so I've taken a look at the reference picture. I should have known better. It's a bout as close to the real thing as you can get it on this scale. The red and white pattern on the sides is truly excellent.

    This looks really great, Tim. I love the front end, especially the bull bar and the snorkel.

  14. gambort 106 months ago | reply

    Thanks all.

    ^ The bullbar is actually some heavy SNOTwork. I challenge anyone to work it out.

  15. Obxcrew [deleted] 106 months ago | reply

    I'll take your word for it. ;-)

    Awesome, can't believe I missed this one, great representation
