Japanese Apocalypse Police Car finished

All done, I have to say it was bloody good fun! Loads of scratch building and a sprinkling of imagination.

A few things;

I added a loud speaker (Plus Models) for psyops (what we call Psychological operations in the business).

Also added was a touch screen control for the remote machine gun and visual/IR search light. You may just be able to make that out in the co-driver's position. The camera is the small device above the search light.

The stowage was covered with a tarp, I thought about tying it down but then thought the chain might be more in keeping.

The Japanese writing says this is a vehicle belonging to the Tokushu Kysh Butai, (Tokyo Special Assault Team), this is sort of Police Special Forces counter terrorism organisation.

I hope you enjoy looking. A full article will appear in MIM next year.

Nice and fun!

Not usually my taste, but this fantasy mix half-way between Mad-Max and Akira really looks nice! Just a suggestion: maybe some paint splashed by an irate demonstrator would still add more flavour. Anyway, looks great just as it is!

I had thought of that Javier but I didn't want to spoil the finish if I got it wrong.

Thanks for the comments.

Interesting choice of number for the vehicle

Hi, Jamie:

You've done a great job on the vehicle. I enjoy seeing creative what-ifs. A nice blend of Mad Max and some of the Japanese post-apocalyptic manga. I noticed you chose number 731, perhaps a nod to the infamous Japanese Unit 731 that conducted biological warfare research including experiments on prisoners?

Cheers,

Chris

731

December 30 2011, 12:17 PM 

Hi Chris

731 comes from my Lynx helicopter, XZ 731. I'd better make sure I mention that in any article save any offence.
