Our club, the Delaware Valley Scale Modelers, had a contest last night for zombie killer vehicles. My entry, a 1909 Stanley Steamer, won the contest. It’s based on Aurora’s 1/16th scale kit, with many modifications. The paint is American Accents Burnished Copper and was weathered with a grimy black wash. I broke the mounting bracket for the one headlight, so I mounted it on the fender and wrapped it with scale chain to simulate a repair. The gun consists of over 70 parts, ranging from HO scale train parts to a 1/8th scale fire extinguisher trigger. The radiophone is based on a toolkit box from a 1/6th scale Stutz and was modified with jewelry pieces, brass rod, and AMT dragstrip accessories parts.
I had a blast building it and specials thanks to DVSM members for voting it best in class!
