I think I'm one of 5 people that have posted updates in the last two months. But anyways, I made some updates to my interceptor. I cut out the door windows and added the damage to the left front fender, and right rear flare. You can now see all the junk on the floor, even though the movie car had much more in there.

I've also done some OCD corrections to my Destroyer involving the engine, and started a second one. Right after these photos my camera died and the batteries won't recharge.

Greetings, you Zombie Hunters . . . I think you will love this, although every single vehicle built in scale on this thread looks better than this:

This is my lates update, my OCD fix for the Destroyer. The engine was placed too far forward, and would probably make for an understeering, nose heavy pig.

After:

Although in person you can see traces of the patch panel, the photo hides it. I've always said about photos of show cars, after seeing them in person, "a picture tells 1,000 lies."

 

and my Ford 2.3 engine swap for the Beetle. Again, this was for my own OCD to correct a car that would  handle badly, or possibly be a suicide machine. Engine is from an old Revell fox body Mustang. Weber side draft carbs are from a Tamiya Lamborghini, with scratch built aircleaners & pre-filters.

The sun finally came out, (you'd think I lived in Seattle, it's been cloudy or rainy every weekend for a month) so I took some better pictures. Natural light is much better than the two lightbulb dungeon lamps.
You can actually see the patch panel in these pics:
102_1945.jpg
102_19462.jpg
Here, I fixed the placement of the tail lamps. Looked kinda goofy with them hanging over the fender.

I bought a kit for a few parts (a snow plow and some 8 bolt wheels), so I figured I'd have a little fun with it. Post-apoc it is. No zombie hunting for this one, though. ;)

I used to feel that way when I got to consecutive posts a day apart. All things considered, this CB lasted very well. It was meant to end in August or September from memory. That it has any life at all now is amazing.

Okay, so about a year ago, I got this idea...

2012-02-14-buildupdates004_zps42be4c09.j

So, finally this week I got some work done! Got a rolling chassis up on wheels and got a coat of flat black on what I got together. There will be some colour, gunk, rust and weathering added as we go...plus some weaponry for protection and pumps to fill the tank with and a way to get the water out as it comes across thirsty TZHers out on the road!

2013-02-08003_zps03b1f8e7.jpg

That is a Peterbilt bumper and front springs...

2013-02-08004_zpsd98cb2a3.jpg

Rear springs are from the remnants of an Autocar truck

Will make a nice companion for "Galaxium"...have to come up with a name for this one...maybe 'Nemo'...

Tony, this ride is WILD.  Love it.  For a minute I though that strange appendage in the back was a shoe form.
