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!

That is too cool.  Great attention to details and that PA system is off the chart.  I love it!

Just a Stanley Steamer would have been cool enough- but you really knocked this one out of the park!

I can see a lot of hard work went into the build, and it's so worthy of the award you got with it ...

A fanciful, fun creation. The parts look like they have purpose.

We need at least one or two new Stanleys in plastic....preferably in 1/25.

 

Nicely done.

This is awesome Keith! Great imagination! Jules Vern would have written an entire story around this car!

Very cool, indeed. Great from conceptualization to realization. 

 

How did you make the vacuum tubes?

The vaccum tubes are HO scale light bulbs - back in the day they were called "grain of wheat bulbs".  They were the same kind of bulbs found in the AMT '64 Ford & Chevies.
