Gaslands Gangs



I've been rummaging about for various 'stuff' to use as conversion material for diecast toy cars, so that I can put together a second 'gang' for Gaslands and Axles and Alloys. I already have half a dozen Hotwheels and Matchbox conversions, all of which are based on supercar or muscle car models rather than Mad Max style post-apocalyptic off road wrecks. The new 'gang' or team will be much more along those lines, using 50's style pick ups and coupes with loads of added stowage, armour and improvised rams, roll bars and spiky bits, along with some serious offensive weaponry. In the meantime, I'm going to practice dismantling and rebuilding an old Matchbox AMX Pro Stocker racing car into a Mad Max style interceptor.

  1. Hi J,

    Is that a Dark Future weapon sprue I see before me? I like the metal bits and bobs - where did you get them? I rather fancy this as something a little different.

    All the best,

    DC

  2. Hi David,

    Yes it is...saved for a rainy day. The other bits include some Peter Pig tank stowage, a rocket launcher thing from The Scene and various Nick backs from the spares box. I've also ordered some cheap resin stowage from a seller on eBay to create a post-apocalyptic look.
