Vroom! Vroom! - finally, more cars are rolling!
After my last post (HERE), I was pretty excited about building and painting little cars again. Here's the painted version of my modern day ride, the Flammencruizer!
I painted the whole car in the polished silver first, and then added the rusty patches and rusty flames.
And at the same time I painted up the silver Interceptor, known to the Fury Road production crew as Razor Cola. I think it turned out pretty nicely. Once I've decided how I want to do the spike droppers I'll add those to the rear.
Having a handful of the parts I sculpted for Brigade Games on hand, all I had to do was trawl through my box of loose cars and pick out a few to glue stuff on. As I wanted some quick progress, I chose these two "Jurassic World" vehicles to get the minimal activity treatment. No cutting, drilling, or grinding, just gluing. The one on the left already has a very interesting profile; lots of lumps, bumps, and random stowage. The one on the right felt like a really solid beast, so it got the heavy ramplate, and armor plates all round. Both received machine guns, the one on the left a .50-cal style, the right a mini-gun style.
And I glued a harpoon launcher and a flamer onto my monster truck, my take on Bigfoot.
Until next time!
