Still very much a WIP (only started it Monday night):

Mobile Lab & Command Centre for my Not-Umbrella Corporation.  Took the load off of a trailer, and rebuilt it with plasticard.  Its not quite square at the moment - only painted the equipment today, and the innards aren't stuck down yet, to give it some rigidity (once the glass dividing section is secured in, it should pull the side wall in a bit).

Haven't finished painting yet either - needs dirtying up on the outside, and general tidying.




The inside of the trailer is divided into 2 sections - sealed off from each other, by reinforced glass - the lab, and the "Command Centre" - both have their own external access - sliding doors (mounted on plasticard rails so they can open and close).




Also toying with the idea of some internal lighting - blue for normal operations, and red for when it all goes a bit pear-shaped....


Still more to do - need to add some weapons racks, more "stuff" in the lab etc....

The command centre units are the new copplestone resin - the lab table is an Ainsty desk, with the computer removed.  Figures are Hasslefree for scale purposes.

Awesome work Akula, how did you do the lighting? LED's? Argonor: I beleive the floor is "diamond plate" plasticard.

Floor is indeed diamond plate plasticard.

The lighting is very lowtech - the blue light is from a light pen, and the red one is from a key ring.  I would show the housing for them, but as this is still a WIP, they are currently stuck to the underside of the roof....with bluetac  Laugh

The base unit (ie the wheels), did come with the trailer, but the body that forms the Command Centre/Lab is made from plasticard - its longer, taller and wider than the original unit, which allows me to have figures inside without it being too crampt - one of the future occupants of the lab might be of above average height..... Wink

No guns, or additional armour, as its not designed to travel without its rather substantial escort of humvees, strykers, tanks, and a couple of platoons of troops.

Ooooooh... Tongue By all means, pull this through, good sir. Laugh

Looks very, very nice. Perfect use of those Copplestone scenery bits. And please keep the lighting effect, that´s a great idea, even if only for the dropping jaws when you first switch it on.

To be honest, i'm almost there (although there is of course, no fixed end...):

BioHazard Team
Are they looking for a cure, or did they start the plague?  Maybe they are testing a vaccine, a new weapon, or even looking for test subjects...
More of these guys to come.  Scientist & lab techie are Hasslefree - the suited guys are Euerka, with a Westwind SOTR conversion.


 
The vehicles
2 more Strykers to make/paint, plus another Abrams, and some more trucks for good measure.
Humvees are TAG (on the left), and Fenris (softtops on the right), Fuel Truck is a converted FOA, Abrams is Hobbymaster, Strykers are CompanyB.


1st Platoon (Biohazard)
Troops in Green are TAG, guys in Urban ACU are Eureka as are the bikes, Commander is TAG, as are the bereted troops (bereted heads are Westwind SOTR), female bodyguard is from Hasslefree - Kendra (my favourite figure).


2nd Platoon - National Guardsmen
Black Scorpion Marines, painted by Dagenhameast (who also paints a lot of UTI's minis).


Of course, this means i need more zombies.....  Laugh
