Vroom! Vroom! - Nux car under construction.
Obviously, one of the coolest Fury Road cars is the Nux car. It is generally noted as being a '32 five-window Ford coupe, but it turns out that it's actually a '33 or '34 Chevy. Anyway, tracking down something suitable in 1:64 scale is a pain in the butt.
I was incredibly lucky to stumble upon this beauty while I was away in Europe (in a cool toy shop in Florence). It's not the same (the roof has been lowered for a start) but it's the closest I've come to the original, so it's the one I'm going with : )
I've just started messing around with the thundersticks, so they are currently blu-tacked in. I'll adjust their lengths to match the top picture and glue them in once the car is painted.
The fleet continues to grow!
