Road warrior - End of the Road

Post by aussie muscle on Mon 21 Nov 2011, 10:33 pm

Since this model was fairly badly damaged i decided to make lemonade and make it into the crashed interceptor, just before it blows up. I dented it up a bit more and i removed the roof spoiler (i imagined that it'd get broken off when the car rolled, as it's only fibreglass), and also some of the LH wheel arch (as it definitely broke off). i cut off the front (which was broken earlier in the movie). i weathered it a bit more (to match my interceptor 2) but added some silver scratching. The 'stuff' from the interior was spread around the debris field. i made the display base for it from a photo frame and some plaster mixed with dirt, then painted and weathered.

Rod , when someone gives you lemons you can either suck lemons or make lemonade , or for your age group "always look on the briiiight side of life (insert whistling here) " tease rolf

Great build Aussie Muscle , the only thing is where is the bomb on the underside of the factory fuel tank ? Love the way you've weathered this and the general theme of the build (and use of a damaged kit) . bigthumbsup bigthumbsup bigthumbsup

Thanks for that Ian, now I get it.
Maybe checkmate might also read this (insert whistling Col. Bogie theme)
Cheers

in the bottom photo, behind the rear wheel closest to camera (passenger or LH side). i seem to have weathered away the red and silver colours that were on it.

now look at the middle picture... do you see the broken windscreen?

Geez that looks so real. Your weathering skills are fantastic, and the overall look of destruction is darn good too. Well done!
