The Caveirão ("Big Skull" BOPE Armored Troop Transport, got the nickname from the insignia of the troop) is in my plans. At least the geometry, I'll ask for help with the textures later, since I'm not good with them.
I want some criminal combatants for them. In Rio de Janeiro the Drug Lords are heavily armed but uncharacterized (no uniform or distinctive characteristics). Maybe I'll mod MMIP Showcase #3 Rebels by Lazarus. They are the closest thing, just more more dark skinned and with brighter clothes (we are in Brazil, after all).
I'm no designer, I just modded the minis (without backs) from shadowolf and the car from Marco Lallo. I would love to see some shadowolf minis with backs. His style is excelent and meshes very well with One monk minis (his art is at some point between Jim and Crusiau).

Frankly, there are only a couple of those figures that aren't facing sideways, so backs would only be helpful on a couple of them, unless you are concerned with whether they are right-handed or left-handed. I think they are fine as is.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
The old "Big Skull" was an adaptation of a valuables transport van. What we call here in Brazil as a "Strong Car". The new generation of the "Big Skull" was developed specifically to support urban combat:

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
