The Beast and Hero - and some other stuff too

Post by otherunicorn on Sat 28 Jan 2012, 11:18 pm

I have tried to build both of these cars at some point.

The Beast.
My build attempts with this one I totally failed. It didn't look like this - this version was done in a 3d package much later.
The original used parts of a 1/20 F1 and a Koenig Lambo.



Hero
Again the original version did not look like these much later 3D versions, though this time I did complete the build. I still have it.

WIP photos of Hero. Most radical 1982 Firebird mod ever. Pontiac Firebird Pro Street Machine 1/25 Revell #7129 (1986)
Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say, I used some of its front guards.
I'll upload a current picture when the glue dries. I had to do some repairs.

More pictures are at my fotki account, which I can't post here due to being a noob. Do you want me to saturate the ART section with them? I may post somewhere more relevant like the showroom.

The front half of the vehicle has 6 wheels - four that steer and two that drive. The front "bumper' steers with the wheels. Power is from 4 supercharged (magnacharger or similar) V-twin harley engines.
Above the rear wheels of the front section there is a pivot point to which the remainder of the vehicle is attached.




Crappy old pic which was the first image of Hero.
