Doomsday-prepped Hudson, Part II

After a mishap with the body, this one got shelved. But now it's back, and I'm taking it in a slightly different direction.

To recap...

The completed chassis.

The in-progress spares for the roof rack.

And the new body...

I wasn't fond of the Jimmy Flintstone phantom wagon body when it first came out, but it grew on me the more I saw it so I finally pulled the trigger on one. That roof rack is from the Ecto 1a kit- it'll need to be shortened and have the legs modified to fit better against the roof, but I think it'll work well enough.

That's a rare zombie Hunter. Good idea I will be watching this one!

No zombies, thanks. That whole genre is beyond worn out. I'm throwing a 'The Walking Dead is getting canceled' party next weekend. B)

You have my attention for this Chuck. Would it be a "Ghostbuster Ecto 0.5"? hmmmm.... :blink:

I'm with you. I love the build but can't handle the theme. I'd rather see it built as a hotel shuttle car from the 50's.

Later-

I don't mind zombies, but I don't mix them in MY apocalypse. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Are there still zombies on the walking dead?

I like the wagon body - let's see where it goes...

Paint and weathering has begun, and the roof rack has been modified to fit the Hudson's roof.

The tank is weathered and decaled, and the roof rack is permanently in place.

Spare tire rack is ready to go.

Robbed some decals from an AMT C-600 and Revell '77 GMC.

For whatever reason, I feel compelled to add a ton of auxillary lights to this thing. So that's exactly what I'm doing...
