Freki Battlewagon by enc86 Freki Battlewagon by enc86
When the UC (United Colonies) decided to take back the wasteland, they knew they needed much more than just tanks.  The Freki Battlewagon was built upon old world wreckage/salvages as cost saving measures but has been upgraded to survive and dominate. Severing as an all-round utility vehicle, it's highly valuable in recon, salvage and Odin support. Highly mobile, fast, rugged and with ample stowage space, a single Freki can travel for days in the waste without resulpply. For the scrum that is encountered, a modified mounted rail gun, back dual mounted machine guns and smoke launchers can easily eliminate most threats. Working independently,in a pack or by Odin's side, the Freki are as deadly as a ravenous wolf.

This is my finished 1/35 kitbashed Humvee. Built up from an old and very crappy kit, with added kitbashed, photo etched, scratch built and resin stowage details. Painted with enamels and weathered with art acrylics and MIG pigments.
I built this Humvee to hopefully match my Odin tank for an upcoming diorama. While I am not 100% happy with it, it will need a bit more weathering and maybe a few more details (flag, forgot antenna too lol) I do like it allot more than the first time I built it. The kit was really crappy, so everything was a bit warped and off and details really lacking, while I feel like I upped the detail a bit, I'll have to buy a better Humvee kit someday and bash that too XD

Anyways sometime after the holidays Ill get to work on the diorama for this and the Odin tank. Should be a solid amount of work and fun, so I am a little excited to get it started. Thanks to everyone that helped me brainstorm names for this thing and BIG thanks to :iconcomcody336: for suggesting Freki.  As always questions comments and suggestions are welcome.

I always thought the smaller the kit, the less detail.  Is this not true?
Reply
:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014
yea it really depends on the scale and how big the real life counterpart is. like a massive 1/300 ship might have like 10x the detail as one of my 1/35 tanks or your 1/24 cars. sometimes it can even be easry depnding on the scale. thats why i like 1/35 its kinda in the middel of everything.
1/35 can be pretty easy to load up with detail, its big enough to make your own details and there are TONS of detail sets out there for it. so dispite the models size, i was able to give it alot of scale objects, and counting individual parts it would be vastly more detailed than some of the bigger tanks i have made.

Makes sense.  A ship is considerably larger than a plane, so I see where you're coming from.  I've always liked 1/24 scale for cars and 1/48 scale for planes.  I have build only one 1/35 plane before.  It was radically detailed, and I would definitely like to build one again someday.

Very nice Hummer. Was it the Italeri or Esci kit? What kit are the tires and rims from?

this was an older "Academy" release and the wheels/rims are from a Tamiya  German Sd.Kfz.232

Always good to be able to get yourself out of jams when you're working solo like Recon can do.

Also, it'd be good to get the Odin unstuck in certain situations with the rest of the Frekis attached to it.

it was alright back in the day, i really loved fallout growing up(and as an adult) would love to get my hands on the new wasteland, but i am not going to pay $60 for a beta.

$60 for a test version of the game?  I don't blame you.

Yeah, the Fallout series was pretty cool.  I wasted a lot of hours with Wasteland and the Fallout series.

:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013
yea, i dont mind supporting indie developers or trying out betas but $60 is steep for most AAA even IMO. shame tho, i am sure if they did a proper cheaper beta, they would get more money and a better finished product.

fallout was one of those games that blew my mind as a kid(up there with doom) and that i still love to play to this day.

Although i understand the American dollar is stronger and there for there is less of it but down here in Australia 60 bucks is cheap for a game. most are around $80 on release (CoD mw3 was 118 bucks pre-owned for about 6 months) but i still agree with you $60 for a beta is very steep even considering how expensive games are down here

ohhh yea, i kinda forget about that aspect, tho i do know of it(i lurk on Reddit and steam forums) really really sucks. there are some games that are worth that much(skyrim,fallout,gta) but most of the time(and seem more of the time) new AAA are just not worth the money especially with the $$+time played ratio.  i buy alot of my consoles games used for that reason and enjoy PC gaming so much. alot more better priced and incredible pc and steam games.
