...that I'd forgotten to take into account when planning to modify all those cars to create matching sets of four.
At the moment I only have two of most weapons/turrets. I do still have enough machine guns/gatlings/tribarrels to make up one set of four, probably the "Fast 4WD" cars. Speaking of which, I realised last night that the plastic windscreen/windows insert from the one white car was a smoky colour whereas for the other three they were blue. So, I decided to take a quick look in the Hotwheels bin I'd found the others in on the way home to see if I could find a fourth silver car.
Success! Another homeless Hotwheels car successfully rescued and adopted into a loving home.
I might have adopted one of his friends as well...
The new silver Fast 4WD has been disassembled and stripped. I took this pic of the nine cars that had already been stripped:
As I said earlier, I can probably do a matching set of four Fast 4WDs. I should also be able to do the fifth (with different armament) and the pick-up. That should actually be more manageable for a weekend of painting.
The rest (and future cars) will have to wait until my orders from Sgts Mess and GZG come in.
