Back of Beyond Expedition 
I snatched some time during the day to finish off the second of the two improvised armoured cars. This one was originally going to have a turret mounted machine gun on the top but I thought this would have made it too tall alongside the other vehicles. I also ran out of ideas for suitable turret making bits, which didn't help. I've tried to make the end result similar but different to the other truck, which seems like a good idea.
As a result, I added a single side mounted machine gun which would (in reality) have a limited 180 degree arc of fire. In the rules an improvised armoured car is considered to fire in a full 360 degrees. I quite like the ad hoc look of the side mounted variant, so will just have to drive around in circles if my opponents question the effective arc of fire.
