A small update on my project. Mainly I'm using a Mecredes Benz DTM from Revell and a M41 from Tamiya.

I'm going to officially call the "Nuke Boys" finished.
I have to say this is the worst kit I've ever had.
But that's not what this is about... Imagine your on the run, trying to beat the clock back to base camp before your stranded in the middle of no where, and a sitting shmogesboard for the living undead !! Well you didn't make it, you spot an old farm house and radio in for help.
Day breaks and your crew is there just in time, as you load up what's left of your scout rig, you spot something behind the barn, something you've only heard story's about, the infamous "HEMI Charger". Rumor has it, this particular one had belonged to a family of moonshine runners down south. Who ended up meeting their demise, at the end of a large caliber rifle in a good old fashion Dixie shoot out ... The rest is as they say, history.

The plug wires were made from beading rope, I think it does a good job of mimicking cloth plug wire insulation. The tunnel ram was from the parts box, already painted and grimy, ready to be slapped on. The stacks were cut from brake line and flared, then polished with a wire wheel and left to tarnish. Everything got a good heavy black wash.

The south shall rise again !!!! (In my best southern draw)

I thought the mix match wheels helped tell the story of a hastily resurrection, but it still had to have at least one western wheel to go with the theme.

Posted Image
The window screen was made from.. Well, window screen. Painted with a fogging of red primer, them washed with a little black to knock it back down some.
Posted Image
I took the advisee of a friend who does a lot of demo derby racing, and mounted the hood with the center cut out for easy repairs ( watch the edges..) and then welded on buckle plates to the fenders for.... You know, impact ..

Posted Image
.... It'll buff out !!!

I have to thank Dr. Cranky again, this is probably the funnest model I've ever built, and had it not been for this build thread, I probably never would have given it a second thought.

That Charger looks great, but I think it could use some drybrushing and dullcoat to town down the gloss. After all, if the graphics are worn down like that, you'd probably have pretty faded paint. :)

Yeah, I've been looking at getting some dry brushing stuff., it's not as bad in person, but the pictures do show a lot of the shine. If I do anymore like this, I would like to some better supply's

I think Cranky posted the link directly from his account, which is why it's trying to get you to sign in. Here's his channel, you can find it towards the top along with other videos:

actually, I think he posted a generic link to  "my videos" because it took me to MY videos, thus it would want you logged in to your own account so it could show you your own videos.

I guess it's up to me to save this from slipping to page 2.

Anyway, work is nearly complete on the Interceptor. The interior is alot more work that I imagined, it's missing a few elements, but it's so crowded in there now, only a replica builder would notice.

I need to do something about these jerry can lids:

Some interior shots before it gets sealed up:

I'm also working on a Ford 2.3 litre engine to transplant into this bug:

models013.jpg

 

 

Right now, its got an LS1? from a Camaro in it. It looks cool, but would be a wheelie poppin, tail draggin machine. The 2.3 Ford is a real-world engine swap, and a bit more practical.
