Recommended Posts

Joe, I guess you missed my revelation...

"Tony Turnbull - ideas rattling around in his hat rack" can be changed to AMT '61 Galaxie named "Galaxium".

Update:

Moving today, gonna be a few days before I get back into the building swing.

Hopefully the internet folks don't take their S.A.T. gettin' out to our new humble abode.

....But we all know they will. They always do.

I went back and re-read the guidelines that Doc set down in post one. He had mentioned that it was 'sposed to be a new or recently started build but also said the rules could be bent a tad.

I am still doing the Pete 359 and a stripped down Huey on a low boy trailer.......here's where I'd like to bend the rules a little.

I'd like to also include my previously built '57 Caddy in tow.

Virgil set the theme but my build is going to have a story behind it as well........in short my build isn't taking on the boiler plate, bailing wire and rust approach.

Out of the survivors there were a few that were car nut hot rodders, some mercenaries and so on. Well, these guys knowing that the only way to survive zombies and mutants was to band together improvise.

Bring it on, Don, you are welcome to think outside the box and stretch the guideliness as much as you want.

As long as the eye candy keeps rolling, that's fine with me.

Rob, I texted you. Let me know when and if you get it!

Steven, go to the WANTED section and post and I am sure you will get a more general traffic, perhaps someone will have the kit and is willing to trade.

Keep us posted.

Here are some more pics of the zibblefritzer.

The plow is made from .005" copper foil. All of the struts are heavy copper wire. It is soldered together with resin cored solder. Inspiriation was the U.K. Robot Wars house robot "Shunt".

The bug itself is some drag race/2 in 1 VW kit that came in a brown box. I forget the manufacturer, but it wasn't one of the American ones. The engine/power train and lower floor pan were taken from some glue bomb Tamia F1 car I picked up second hand. Rear wheels are obviously Revell truck front wheels. Probably off my Peterbuilt that got squished when my shelves collapsed.

Edit: It was the IMC Union #MC05-1500 VW Gasser - Thanks Tony. Unfortunately the sprue for the drag car version interior etc. was missing from the box, and as I bought it from a dealer at a car show, I was stuffed.

That bug is too cool. I have been leaning towards doing the same type of front treatment for my Zombie Cruiser.

Ken-The Bug is originally the IMC kit repopped by Union. I have the same kit in a brown box! (Cool kit!)

I got my package from Trevor's Toy Box today...the 3 sets of off-road wheels/tires I ordered (not bad, 1 week exactly from the US to my door!).
