A review of Civilian vehicles
This page is a recent batch of civilian vehicles I acquired and converted for my gaming. The gaming tables are getting quite
full now with trucks, buses and cars scattered everywhere!
Not everyone with want to try their hand at converting existing vehicles or scratch building them, so hopefully there is enough ideas on these pages to provide a good idea of the selection of civilian vehicles out there.

Heroics and Ros German Bus trailer
When I saw the bus and trailer from (H&R, formely Armstrong Models) I thought that the trailer would be useful on its own. I chopped off the trailer arm and added a radiator and bumper made from plasticard and a small piece of sandpaper. I think I could do better on the next one, but I happy how it came out and I like the paint job. Or if your feeling lazy you could j ust chop off the trailer arm and it will still look good.
H&R 18 wheeler truck conversion
Another conversion of the H&R Foden. It is meant to be an 18 wheeler but the back wheels are only singles and are a bit crooked. I think I'll replace the wheels one day but otherwise I'm pleased with the model. The trailer and the rest of the tractor were made from Plasticard offcuts and the fuel tanks are cut from round plastcard strips.
