I wanted to experiment with vehicles in BattleTech but was not ready to commit to the expense of purchasing metal models. I roughed out a hull using foamcore and layered card. The SRM launcher was designed in Inkscape and printed out on cardstock.
The paint scheme was kept simple. I started with a base coat of black spraypaint (I used painters tape to cover the printed SRM "tubes" on the front of the launcher) and then used forest green and highlighted the panels by drybrushing a lighter shade of green.
These trucks are paper models available on the Gennet Models site. They come in either 15mm or 28mm, so I took the 15mm models and scaled them down to 40% of the size to hopefully get something close to 6mm. While they look pretty good next to the old Ral Partha figures, these models are a little big when compared to accurately scaled 1/285 miniatures (such as those from GHQ).
The scale difference is less noticable on the game table and they have already made their debut as background props to help add detail to a city.
