    I have been on a Joes custom kick for a bit now. I got a PoC Fury a while back and really like the idea of the Cobra Metro Armored Dvision so I started creating vehicles for my Alley Vipers to go with the MAD idea. This little tank I call the Cobra Tantrum and imagined it would be ideal for clearing and securing small alleys to prevent the main force from being flanked as they advance in urban settings. This is made from one of the small vintage Empire Strikes Back laser tanks. It was yellowed badly and missing the bubble canopy so I trimmed the cockpit ring down to show a bit more of the driver and then painted it with Krylon Fusion satin burgundy and black and used Testors flat grey on the interior and undercarriage. Decals are mostly from a PoC Crimson HISS and a bit of whatever I had on hand.

    Thanks! The next project I have to post soon I finally tried some weathering on as you suggested once. It was fun to do and is something I may play around with more frequently. I also finally started back up on some TF projects at long last!

    For some reason, this reminds me of those Advance Wars games on the GBA and DS.

    I just looked that up and I can totally see why it would! I remember seeing those games years back but never got to try them.

    Thanks! I am really fond of small vehicles so I am always looking for ones I can convert to Joe vehicles.
