My skills are basic and would like to have kits. Lazy..lol I do enjoy seeing everyone's work and will strive to make my own. However have the powers here considered a line of small multi part vehicle kits for post apocalyptic. Not necessarily mad max style but a scavened type or light military/police riot truck. Just a newbie throwing out wishes...lol
They probably have as such sets have been proposed before (there was a custom cop car in the police thread and there have been quit a few different vehicles purposed over the years), however the last time the subject was touch upon by a WGF rep (I believe it was Paul, but it could have been Lonnnie), he stated quite clearly that WGF had no plans to do any vehicles in the foreseeable future (except for bikes apparently, although I suppose one could just call them iron horses
If you really want vehicles to play with for modern and apoc in 28mm, there are three easy things you can do right now:
1. keep an eye out in toy shops, other local stores (thrift and drug stores mostly), garage sales, and your friend's kids discarded trash toys. You would be amazed at what you can find (I have a broken toy tractor and some plans
2. keep an eye out for models in 1/56 to 1/48 scales, for instance there are quit a few 1/48 scale tanks some of which are perfect for modern and Revell has three easy to build 1/48 snap it tanks that are preprinted for apoc (although I will be the first to admit that two of them are rather unlikely contenders for that period, but hey its apoc, who cares
3. In conjunction with 1&2, when you find a vehicle or other toy you like or that works for 28mm (or you think works) be sure to get the manufacturer's name or better yet website if you can and at the very least make a note of who sold it to you, particularly in regards to the cheap plastic toys, because if you want more of them it really helps to know who makes them and sells them, plus it may help other people out cause it is real sad for everyone when things go like this:
"Hey, man. where did you get that cool robot?"
"I don't know man, just from random toy shop."
"Well, do you know who made it?"
"I don't know dude, somebody in China (or was it Mexico
) I threw the packaging away before really looking at the labels."
Meanwhile else where in the world a hole in the wall toy store closes and a Russian plastics company decides that making toilets seats is more profitable than those toy robots they where making (Yes, they weren't being made in China or Mexico at all
Another thing you can do is make stuff from scratch or use a 3D printer, but both have issues that involve time, money, and skill.
