I just saw over at PMMS that DioPark is coming out with some very cool modern, Middle East guntrucks/rocket launchers. The trucks are what we called in Korea "Bongo trucks", minivan-style cab w/a bed. They look to be really nice. They also have rocket ammo sets to go with the trucks.

Check them out at PMMS.

I saw Terry's post on FB. All sorts of possibilities with them, hopefully they'll be decent kits!

Yes, lots of possibilities. I could imagine these even being used for Post-Apocalyptic, construction, or "Mad Max" guntrucks.

Would it be considered heresy to use them as actual garbage trucks?

Not at all, you can sue them for whatever you want. I was thinking about using one w/out weapons as well.

Well that's saved me doing a double rocket pod on the ancient Hasegawa Toyota Dyna at anything up to 75 in parts depending whose rocket pods are used (ET, Voyager, Meng)........
