So I've been watching this threat closely... and decided to join. Actualy, thanks to this topic, I have 3 new models on my shelf. Starting my own little collection of zombie patrol vehichles.
I want to build a scene to display the cars with, and I need people to complete it.
Anyone know where I can get 1/24th or 1/25th scale figures?


That's a dilemma we all face- lack of g-scale or 1:24 figures. try ulrich mini-men, they're basics and need putty filling on the joints, but it's a start. also, Sixx is working on some zombie figs to start casting.dunno how long he's gonna be on that though :P

We can always use more builders in this thread! More people building means more awesome pics to look at. You should post the vehicles you've built so far thanks to the thread, Kyle!

Here are two builds inspired by this thread.
First is my '55 Chevy pick up. I added a flame thrower to the passanger side, a gun in the box, a blade up up front to mow down what ever zombie get sin the way. the missing gas cap got replaced with a red rag and added asheet metal door to replace the rusted shut door.
The second is part toyota and part I dont even know what. Gull wing style zombie-proof doors and a escape hatch were instealled along with swiviling chairs. Some sort of monstrous bladeds on the front to cut down the undead along with massive spikes to impale.
I've had alot more fun build these lately and still have afew more to go. I'll post the next one I start.Attached File  DSC00848.JPG   2.41MB   50 downloads

I can certainly do that. Thanks again for all the inspiration guy's, your all doin some really great work. And thank you Dr. Cranky for comming up with the idea.
Here's the Chev again, it's also been converted to 4x4, a winch mounted to the roof and the air cleaner was made from an oil pan. Also added a sheet of steel behind the cab that moves up and down, to stop any stray bullets from hitting the driver or passanger

The Toyota's windsheild was made to look like the safety glass on a bank truck.
The gun in the box of the Chevy is the only weapen I have sadly. So all my vehicles are getting outfitted with sharp edges and saw/chain wheel blades.

Kyle, I love those builds. Thanks for sharing them, I copied some of the pics over to the next PROGRESS VIDEO.

Joe, thanks for the revised list. We are holding steady at 123 builders so far. That's a great response indeed.

And to think we have about 6 months to go! :wub:

I'll give a shot at making a few more guns. Could use a few more vehicles up front with some fire power.

Thus the '?' by your name. Thank you for letting me know. You have been removed from the list. Although I have a similar process and thinking to Ken's. You're now involved! You may not be building, but you're enjoying. And that is always a good thing. There is still plenty of time left. If you decide that you do want to build, just let me know and I will add you back on.

I started another build. Pics tomorrow as I have been taken quite ill this evening.

I had a NASCAR kit which suffered horrendous damage I assume in packaging as the box was intact and factory wrapped. Well, a sawcut here, sanding there, new wheels and a primer coat have begun what should be a interesting road car.

Stay tuned.

"Jason Smith - finally registered after two weeks of lurking" How could you tell that? :o
Anyhow, Dr. Cranky said I should share these here, Although they're more finalized rebuilds, and not entirely new. I tend to build cars as they could have appeared in The Road Warrior, not overly armored, or armed, no zombie protection... Mostly dangerous looking hot rods.
First is the Wasteland 57 Chevy. Built from 3 different cars, 2 Chevy Bel-Airs and a Corvette. It offers front and rear crash protection/anti-personell bumpers.

Next, I have a early 80's Toyota Soarer. Overseas, this was Toyota's competitor to Nissan's Skyline. It has a straight-6 turbocharged engine, salvaged Russian machine gun, protective armor bumper and wheel arches, handholds for the gunnere, radio equipment and storage racks.

Next I have my re-rebuild of Fujimi's Mad Police Destroyer. I got this kit when I was probably 12 or 13. The kit makes no mention of what the cars are, but I have researched it and have found this to be a Nissan Cedric 430, they were a semi-luxury car, often used as police cars or taxis. I've tried to restore this kit to resemble the boxart.
