I bought a Dollar store Montoy Tank for the treads of my custom Assault Tank. I decided to use the body to make a Hover Tank. It is smaller, faster and more maneuverable.

Here is Jai's refurbished ARC-170 from Era of Darkness. I assume he got it from a junkyard and has been working on it for a while...

There have been some pretty cool entries so far! I have been pretty busy as of late and haven't had the chance to really dive into some of the stuff I wanted to make. Anyway, I had some free time this week and decided it would probably be best to start off with something small, so I took a crack at my very first custom vehicle/mini rig. It is a 1 man Scout Recon Speeder or SRS-1. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for the kind words everybody!

Chewie: Yes, that is a Shipwreck figure. I sculpted the helmet except for the visor, which I cut from real thin plastic and glued in place before sculpting the helmet.

Also, I found that Shipwreck figure at Dollar General last week when I ran in to pick up some paper plates. They had the green version, the blue/gray version, and the blue/black Snake Eyes. The best part is that they were only $3 a piece, so I grabbed all 3! Anybody wanting some cheap Joes or some figures for customs might want to check their local Dollar General stores and see if any of these guys are still hanging around!

Also, the speeder was made from 1/4" thick sheets of plastic that I "laminated" together to get the thickness I wanted. I then sketched out the base shape of the speeder and cut it out. The larger (front half) pieces on the sides were made out of the arms of some broken generic transformer of my son's. The curved side pieces on the back half were some random parts from a broken snowmobile toy, also belonging to my son lol. The seat was cut and shaped from foam and the handlebars are Lego in origin. The silver "ion cannon" on the front is the inner portion of an agricultural sprayer tip. I tell you what, this was one odd and ugly looking "contraption" before a coat of primer and a couple coats of green paint lol.

Ok, I'm new to this, but I tried to attach the pictures, so I hope it worked.
Anyway, it's some random airspeeder I made out of cardboard, a tie advanced prototype small model, and some battle droid blasters
