Ken, what you can put your finger on is the neat idea that not all builds have to be TZH's, meaning Zombie Hunters. They can be for the other side, ZOMBIE CARS! Love the idea . . . and your build represents that kind of infection.

I hope a few more folks will build something from that angle as a way of keeping the fun going!

OK NO FAIR! I had this idea first! LOL Looking forward to seeing what you do to yours. I took mine to work with me tonite (Got it in the mail before I left for work) to see what I can see. I got a couple of ideas & will post pics once I make some progress.

Hey Joe it's OK! They will look totally different!! PK

For those of you looking for spikes, here are some options:

1. toothpics
2. nails/thumbtacs
3. plastic dart tips
4. stretched sprue bits
5. golf Tee, although they might be a bit off scale.

Hope you find this useful.

PAPAFO HERE, lots of cool stuff being built. The ZOMBIES don't have a chance in h#ll with the TZH caravan comming thru.
I'm thinking about talking with my TOLEDO NNL group about doing this for the 2013 NNL theme. We'll see how that goes over with the the group. will let you know as soon as I can.

I also use very small gauge nails. 3/4" long.

Both Robs are right on with those choices too.

Rick, I think if you do this THEME for your club, you'll get lots of people excited about building. And it's a great recruitment tool for younger builders.

I know a guy who does military airplane models, he will cut the lead our of penciles and sharpen the end of them in a sharpner...looks just like small short range missiles in a plastic tube barrel, or cluster.

Eelco, come on, we all start at the same place. Don't feel bad. Make your progress at your own pace, nobody is going to tell you otherwise. There's no hurry, buddy. Take it easy and enjoy the fact that his is going to be a STRESS FREE zone! :P ;) B)



thanks doc

i am building this car in the same manner the driver would, make it into a car first, then add the TZH stuff (if that makes sence?)

they wifey has been giving me 15 minute windows after work each day to build which isnt much but at least were moving

i cant wait to get some colour on her though, maybe i can look better in the next slideshow

You guys are great. Now, remember, keep the round of progress pictures coming so that I can add them to the next video, in particular those of you entering the primer stage.

You know the routine, post the best picture you can and I will copy it.

Unfortunately, I had a long day at work, so I'm crashing early tonight.

Hold the fort, my friends. See you tomorrow! Cheers, DC
