Here's my vision about the Revell T3 Volkswagen. I wanted to create a real graffiti/skate vehicle so here we go! There's not much modifications but I concentrated on little details, interior and of course that huge graffiti. Most of the details are scratch built items and graffiti is painted with brushes.
Skateboards, cap and screens all scratch built. 8-balls as tire valve covers also scratch built.
I used Alan Johnson Signature Brush and one of my own designed brush to paint the graffiti.
At this time I want to introduce you something quite odd... This is totally scratch built model. This is totally fictive and based on a Finnish comic strip. Fingerpori is very popular daily strip here in Finland. I collected as many pictures of this car I managed to found from those strips. After that I decided the measurements and details. Now it only needed some serious work...
I scratch built all the polystyrene parts. Seats have been made with cad. I created 3D-models and then ordered those seats from Shapeways. I also designed photoetched sheet for this project.
Yes, it's quite ugly, but it was very fun project to build!
So this was quite quick project to do. This took about two weeks and this is built mainly using left over parts. I found a 1/16 engine and a 1/25 body from my storage and quite soon it was obvious what I was going to do with these...
That monster engine needed quite a lot room so I had to cut the body and other parts quite hard. There's no firewall at all. The whole front axle is scrathbuilt. Rust is made with primer-hairspray-final color -method.
