This series was inspired by Chris Roe/Mel Ebbles Luna Base series of vehicles and paint scheme. I have always been fascinated by mars and colonizing other planets and I love Jim's Terra force minis, so I figured I could do my own paint scheme and storyline and voila! the "Canal Rats" were born.
The first thing I did was a Percheron recolor from Genet Models. This helped me work out the insignia and colors. I absolutely love the "Perchy" It has always been one of my favorite models and was fun to mod.
The next I did was a recolored Onager. I have to print and build one and photograph it as my last one was destroyed by Catzilla.
After that I started working on modding and recoloring the Basic Terra Force troops. It took awhile but I finally got them done.
Up next in the queue will be the Terra Force Heavy Weapons and Special Weapons guys. After that I'll work on some more vehicles like the Pinzgauer! Its huge, but anything worth doing...
I have also been working on an Umbrella Corp mod for the Pinzgauer for this years Papercuts. I still have to plan out the diorama, but that's half the fun. Here's a pic of the Perchy until next time.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.
