The shields I made from the ROC battlestands are explained thusly:

Hotglue those forearm shield things from POC Firefly onto the back of the painted stand. You could glue anything that will attach to the figures arm onto the stand. I glued it on at this angle by putting the shield and figure in the desired pose and matching up the arm and the attachment.

The weathering on the front of the red sigil shield was done with a little flathead screwdriver. I painted in the scratches with silver after the base coat, then apply the top coat and finally a little more silver in the scratches. The only red I have right now is a red fine point Sharpie. I think it looks ok. A little drybrush of silver around the edges and that's the weathering.

A Team Van- to the Chop Shop!

After completely dismantling, stripping and repositioning of that back wall with hot glue, it was all washed, primer painted and then painted again. Added parts are hotglued in place.

from another angle

all interior parts were painted detailed and weathered. The very top part of the seats were cut off to make them look more a match to the figures. The door interior is from a 1/18 Chrysler 300.

Milliput was used to fill in the holes from the light rack and the other various holes that came about from the strip down.

This stuff is great. After the Milliput dries, you can sand it, cut it, whatever and then paint over it.

I made a rear seat from the van's tail fin thing along with part of a hull from a cheap and small toy tank. The "fabric" is attached with hot glue.

The back seat installed. Unfortunately, once I sealed everything up, its hard to get a shot of the interior without taking it apart again.

A headliner was also added. It was cut to fit. This material is shelving liner from the housewares department.

a shot of the headliner in place, glued down, then cut out with an exacto to the fit of the van. .
