May be a little off topic, but does anyone know where I could get a 1/24-1/25 figure of Steve McQueen as Bullitt. I am about to start the Bullitt Mustang & would like the figure to go along with it. I have seen lots of 1/18 scale but nothing close to the car scale.
A look at the re-popped (first time in 40 years) Stroker McGurk Surf rod kit. Awesome retro kit from the Hot Rod Magazine heyday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yR073CNj-I
So, in some dark future, they got a little more serious about the rules in the bumper-car attraction. That's where War Pig comes in. So I started with a 1/20 Laputa (Castle in the Sky) Flaptter. For those not well-versed in the animated works of Hayao Miyazaki, it's a little one-two man ornithopter (flapping-winged flying machine) that is nearly a snap kit - pretty simple. I cut the bottom away, and built a rubber "bumper" skirt from Super Sculpey. I also added some aluminum miniguns that were meant to upgrade some cartoony tank kits, and a leftover seat from a Wallace and Grommit sidecar. The rest was all paint and minor scratchbuilding.
