Hot Rod Battlewagon 3 on hold. Hot Rod Battlewagon 4 on the production line

So as I was building this guy I realized I'm just not happy with it, at least as a battlewagon.  A bit too small, and the general direction isn't as pleasing as I'd like.  So I'm placing the project on hold.  Instead I'm spinning up another wagon.
This wagon will be 'Ard Cased, but the same look as the previous two.  Here's the hull so far:

Hot Rod Battlewagon 3 Part 2

Right.

More utility today than anything.  I wanted to incorporate the copious numbers of extra trukk axles I have, mostly to use them up.  The differential does look cool though, so no worries there.  The only issue they are designed for the trukk chassis, and mine is a bit wider.  So choppy chop!

Hot Rod Battlewagon 3 Part 1

No rest for the weary.  I'm going to OFCC in July so I now have a deadline.  I have a rough list and I need at least one more Battlewagon.  So today I layed down the frame:
This wagon will be a little bit shorter than the last, mainly because that's the room I have in my foam tray for my bag.  This guy will have an offset chassis to accommodate the larger back wheels.
The frame itself is some Evergreen rectangular tube.

Holy crap!  After being mocked by a barely started chassis for two months I'm finally finished.

Hot Rod Battlewagon 2 part 5

I'm still fairly new to magnetizing my stuff, but I'm really liking it on my battlewagons so far.  I can change up loadouts, easily show destroyed weapons and most importantly store my stuff easier.

Let me show how I built this iteration of mag-gunz.

My goal is to get a post like this:
and a mount like this:

Hot Rod Battlewagon 2 part 4

So I got on a run of building and didn't really get in any WIP shots.  All I really did though was lay out parts from my loose bits box that looked like they'd work together, then cut, mashed, forced, glued and swore my way into this point in the build:
