Evil minded are we?  Where did you get the idea of putting a soldier, dressed for battle,  at the wheel?

Watching the show "Orville" I thought an alien figure would make a cool driver.

I looked at action figures at WalMart. Most are too big, or cost more than I want to spend just to get the torso.

 

When walking my dog, I find lost abandoned toys. I found the Lego and instantly thought, Bingo, hot rod driver for my H Power Monster :D. The price was right :dance3:

 

His flak jacket held a grenade, has night vision DVR mounted on his helmet, an MP-5 in one hand and a fish in the other. What the fish is used for, I'm not sure. Maybe a dust buster-type vacuum?

He lost both legs in a "training incident" because they got in the way of the lead wires :laugh2:

Driver is secured to the motor with mounting tape

Windows will be cut out for weapons access.

No steering wheel needed, as both driver and vehicle have fly-by-thought control technology.

If the driver fails to survive a mission, we can continue to operate the vehicle via remote from The Wolcott Ranch :laugh2: :crazy:

I think someone may need to pay Pablo a visit, just to make sure everything is OK!  Love the effect.  Is that the body in the pic?

Yes, that is "the body" :)

I'd show it, but the red Testors enamel I used for the tail lights is taking forever to dry.

 

As far as a "welfare check visit", don't bother, John, I've been certifiable for years :D

It's snowing here so you'd biff en-route anyway :laugh2:

I can't have my driver running around waving a tan colored MP-5 and grenade -

people would be laughing at him. So I painted them, and the pins, Tamiya NATO Black

Yeah!  I'm pretty sure that people will take him seriously now!  Good job, on the chassis, body, and the driver!  Thanks for posting the build!

Thanks for the kudos :)

The Mop-n-Glo polish wasn't working well on the body, so I tried Lemon Pledge - much better.

Second track test #2 January 6, 2018.

Nerf you into the wall, shoot your tires flat with the MP-5, or a grenade tumbling at you, take your pick :diablo:
