Several people have asked where I got the Plastic Jesus and Madonna that I used in my Unsafe @ Any Speed build.

 

http://www.modelcars...topic=68807&hl=

 

Here is how I did it:

 

They are modified Z scale railroad figures. They make good hula girls and tikis also.

1. I glue on a base. These were two layers of 0.0145" styrene.

2. Reshape or add arms.

3. I used CA to make the robe arms and fill in between legs, or glue on brush bristles, to make grass skirt.

4. Paint as desired.

I don't care if it rains or freezes, long as I got my plastic Jesus settin' on the dash board of my car

Comes in a color pink and pleasant, glows in the dark 'cause its irridescent, take it with you when you travel far.

Oh man, I gotta have some religion in some of my builds. Too cool. I just never would have thought of Z-scale figures. Genius.

I can go a hundred miles an hour as long as I've got the almighty power glued up there by my pair of fuzzy dice...!!!

 

I used to LOVE listening to Don Imus....  Imus in the Morning...  he and his buddy Charles McCord...  He was one irreverent SOB, but VERY funny.
