Bubba's Toxic Waste Disposal

30 October 2013 - 08:46 AM

HI guys It's been awhile since I've posted anything in the forum because I have not been building anything lately. I started a project a few weeks ago though called Bubba's Toxic Waste Disposal its a redo of something I built back in the 80s in 1/24 scale. I went a little bigger this time I started with a 1/18 scale die cast 55 Chevy pickup added a scratch built  garbage truck back end and a slimy monster. I still have to finish the Bubba figure a trash can for the monster's tentacle and the base, here are a few progress pictures.

Flying Hummvee

I'm not sure if this project belongs here or not but you gotta admit it's cool as all get out, defiantly going on my future projects list. I see a motorized rotor blade in 1/25 scale with figures just like in the picture.

1/18 55 Chevy Dirt Track Car

01 April 2013 - 05:35 PM

Back in the early 70s when I was a teenager my dad used to take me to the Anderson Speedway here in Indiana on Saturdays. I loved to watch those nasty looking dirt track cars. There were a lot of 55 - 57 Chevys on the track back then. I've decided to take an old 1/18 scale die cast 55 Chevy Belair that I have had for a long time chop it up a bit and make a beat up old race car out of it. I'm going to grind the wheel wells out for bigger tires and fab up a roll cage. I'm thinking about painting it plum crazy purple I want it to end up looking something like this picture. I'll post some progress pictures as I go along.
