This was build for Dr Cranky's Post Apocalypse/Zombie Hunter Community build. My work in process is in with the amazingly creative builds there. Do visit there if you haven't!

The body for this was a mouse cover I have saved to be used for a hot rod just waiting for the right time .. this was it! The chassis and engine came from a glue bombed MPC Skorpion kit I acquired somewhere. Some trimming of the floor pan and it fit the mouse like it was made for it.

The gun I made from scratch using a Browning M1719 machine gun as a prototype.

Very cool. I'm not big into the zombie hunter/rat rod/post apocolyptic look, but the concept and execution is great. I've considered doing a mouse car, but never quite figured out how to pull it off. "Back to the drawing board", he says while eyeballing his mouse....

Nice job!

Interesting being the it a systems administrator at work it might be time to purge some old mice. It's cool to see what can be done with other items

I like what you have done ,vary cool. Im surprised that a model company don't come up with a show rod with a mouse as a bases. It would cool.

You guys are having way too much fun with this "Zombie Hunter" business, if that is possible. You are speaking my language with anything VW related. That's a cool little Bug Mike!

Thanks for all the overwhelming comments!

And to think, I'm the most non-Zombie person in the world ... I don't think I've sat through one Zombie movie in my life ... I avoid them like Zombies! :) This just shows how much fun we ARE having in the Zombie Hunter build!!!!
