Gladiator, Jeep Gladiator


Jeep Gladiator with James Bond.
Two fancy light weight motorcycles in the rear.  I may yet try to figure out how to remove them and uses them separately.
Dark underside.
Green top side.
Wheeled back side.

Do you like gladiator movies Billy?
What about the Jeep Gladiator?
It has two light motorcycles in the back.
Classic Jeep grill.
I considered cutting the two motorcycles out so they could be used separately, but the models have fuel cans between them and so no detail on that side of the bike.  Oh, well.

Aero Pod

This is the Hot Wheels Aero Pod.
Don't know why they call it that since it does not fly.
This one has a Tyrannosaurus skeleton head on the side.
I have a bunch of these already that have been disassembled and repainted.
This one will be part of my Adventure Team with the only changes being the AT logo and removing the Hot Wheels from the side.  Also a little more detail painting.
This new panto system of painting has fantastic detail but they only do the sides.
Front back and top suffer because of it.
I have a plan for this vehicle, my others are part of my Starship Troopers unit.
Matchbox made this Indiana Jones inspired figure and he will ride in this truck.

Matchbox Armored Car

Matchbox Armored Car.
I like armored cars.
I think they are great for playing cops and robbers games.
And even for playing terrorist games too.
This is a pretty cool looking vehicle.
In the old days it was not uncommon for armored cars to have two axles and 8 tires on the back wheels.
Carrying a truck load of coins was heavy work.

Adventure Team

Why would the Adventure Team need a paramedic ambulance?
I want to make the Adventure Team training site and so tough training leads to injuries.
Also the Public Health Service is one of the uniformed services of the United States.
So I think they could be included as part of the Adventure Team, at least as the medical personnel.
Here with James Bond.

Rescue Truck

This paramedic truck I got for use with my Adventure Team.
Since it's already yellow, I may not repaint it.
If I repaint it the rescue decals will be lost and they are pretty good I think.
I am considering maybe just repainting the hood and putting a big Adventure Team logo on that.
Or maybe each door too.

Hot Wheels Geoterra.
With James Bond.
Bottom view.
Top view.
It might make a nice sports car rather than off road vehicle.
Replace the undercarraige and give it tame tires.
Rear view, shows the thick underside.
It may end up being repainted yellow for Adventure team, but I like this sort of camouflage.
It's an interesting vehicle.

Guard Car


Mattel Global Security car.
Most guards don't get cars this nice.
It's a nice livery too.
The legal stuff.
I like that Matchbox do a wide variety of working vehicles, street sweepers, fire trucks, construction vehicles and such.
