2. Destruction Buggy & Trebuchet

To survive in this post-apocalyptic wasteland I decided to mount a huge shovel on top of my buggy that's capable of getting rid of everybody on my way. A secondary weapon is a trailer mounted trebuchet. The extra weight of the shovel as well as towing the trebuchet required some extra power, so the buggy was fit with a massive V8.


A small wheel on the back of the buggy allows you to play around with the shovel (see video).

3. Zil The Peacemaker

This time Mad Max came to post-apocalyptic Russia. In the wilderness of Siberia, you can find gangs with universal vehicles that are good at rough terrain. These groups are involved in finding the remains of planes, rockets and helicopters shot down during the nuclear war.

4. FrankenBase

It has been years after the unspeakable and the survivers used whatever machinery they found to make a new start.

The last bit of civilization was rebuilt in a form of the mobile base nicknamed the FrankenBase due to the nature of it's design.

Frankenbase was assembled from the following leftovers:

  • Buckets and bogies from a pair of tracked loaders
  • Front frame, suspension and axles from a monster truck
  • Command bridge and helipad from a stranded ship
  • Crane and two containers were salvaged from a dried up port

The base also features three support vehicles, a quick buggy, a small bulldozer and a helicopter:

11. Apocalypse Scrambler

"In this broken world where nobody should be trusted and gas has more value than life, my ride has to be a motorcycle."

Two-wheelers are a Mad Max classic. All episodes feature some, in a vast variety of style and purpose. Mine is a scout and interceptor, with enough punch to outrun anything on the road, and should that not be the case, the ability to escape off-road.

It features steering, side stand, full suspension with lengthened single swing arm, shaft transmission, compressed twin flat four fake engine and a mine layer device.
It equips a nitro tank, explosive and smoke grenades, a jerrycan, a luggage bag, a sniper rifle and a dashboard with speedometer and compass.

16. Heavy Metal

I've been working on this for 2 months, and pretty much ran out of time (and IR receivers..). 
Please excuse the poor quality video. Something broke inside whilst filming and I was unable to show it driving.

-Piston engine
-Front mower
-Side arms with rotating blades. These arms come down, rotate, and a gearbox inside the cab allows drive to connect to the blades at the end of each arm
-Trailer has shutters which open and close
-2 mini guns come out either side, and rotate independently
-1 mini gun is operated by a scissor lift and also rotates

17. Aardvark

So, roaming around the wasteland is dangerous, but sometimes you find treasures. This time it came in the form of an old army base, which had mostly been thoroughly looted with all the weapons and such long gone, but there was something that the previous looters didn't understand: an Aardvark Area Mine Clearing System vehicle. It's not fast and it's not armed, but it's heavily armored and equipped with a device to force through almost any kind of obstacle you can find in the wasteland: a mine flail. While it's originally meant for clearing minefields, it can also be used to plow through a fortifications and such, while the crew are protected inside the armored cabin from almost any weapon the marauders of the wasteland might carry.


- Flail spinning and height adjustment

- Drive with tracks

- Steering, with independent double wishbone suspension

Sorry for the poor quality video, it's the first I've ever made and I had very little time to film it.

19. Mad Nomad

Shortly before the apocalypse a fully electric concept vehicle was developed, which carried the name Rocky II. It was ready to be taken in production, but the apocalypse crossed out that ambition...

After the apocalypse, survivors found the remains of the Rocky II prototype. The batteries had turned useless because there were no charging points anymore, but an old 7.8L (478 cubic-inch) GMC V6 engine was installed to drive the vehicle and charge the batteries at the same time. Mad Nomad saw its first daylight...


  • Control+ controlled 4-wheel steering and rear wheel drive
  • 2 working guns operated from within the cabin under the hood
  • Fake V6 engine with working pistons and working valves

21. TTT - The Tracked Trike

Mr Obi's mighty machine gun tracked trike, or... TTT - The Tracked Trike!
A big machine gun is always useful in the Wastelands. And a mobile one even more!

This is a tracked trike with a big machine gun on top of it. The machine gun has 4 barrels that are moved forward and backward by an orange rotary selector.
As a bonus, the barrels also rotate themselfs doing a lot of noise :-)


RC Features (two PF IR Receivers):

  1. Driven by two L motors 4
  2.  speed @Didumos69 simple 4 speed based gearbox, modified to use a torsion bar for the 90 degree delimiter and an embbebed 4th to 1st blocking mechanism.
  3. Servo for speed change using a @charbel 90 degree stepper
  4. Servo for steering
  5. Secondary distribution gearbox, with 4 exits, commanded by the same shaft used to command the speed gearbox, driven by an M motor.
  6. 1st speed: Tracks enlarge for stability
  7. 2nd speed: tilting machine gun
  8. 3rd speed: rotating machine gun
  9. 4th speed: firing machine gun

Other functions:

  1. Tracks with a suspension
  2. Tracks always under tension, front sprockets shares shock absorbers with first boogy
  3. Foldable chair on the machine gun







And a video... (one day I'll learn how to edit them...).

23. Gator Mayhem

Functions-wise, I think it's pretty packed, as I managed to squeeze in 6 motorized functions, a working V24 fake engine, working steering wheel and fully openable doors, so you can exit the truck in a flash.

Technical specs & functions:

- 4x4 Drive (XL motor)
- Steering (L motor)
- Open/close gator jaw (M motor)
- Swipe gator tail left/right (M motor)
- Rotating turret (M motor)
- Firing the turret (M motor)
- Turret capacity: 5 missiles
- controlled by: 2 BuWizz bricks
- a functional V24 fake engine
- working steering wheel
- openable doors
- Length: 72 cm
- Width: 30 cm
- Height: 30 cm
- Weight: 2.8 kg




Good luck y'all! :sweet:

24. Law and Disorder

In my post apocalyptic world disorder will not be tolerated. The Police fight back. There is no room in the vehicles for prisoners so they are tied to the outside.


Hog steering and manual drive

Sliding side door

RC controlled side crane arm and winch

RC controlled roof mounted rotating gun

Escape hatch on roof

Front spiked ram

Rear doors and space to chain prisoners.





Video of RC functions


Thanks and good luck all.
