Big Bopper's XB Pursuit

Post by Shoey on Sun 19 May 2013, 3:12 am

Thought I'd give this one a go. this is one of my scratch built Falcons.
it will eventually be a part of a diorama from the first Mad Max movie,
the scene with the Falcon flying through the caravan.

So you'll be scratchbuilding a Bongo van for your diorama?
Or is there an obscure jap kit I don't know about?

Dave, have you ever heard of sleep walking! it's kind of the same!
Deadly, only enough room for the ute and caravan
Would be an awesome diorama if I could fit everything
from the Bongo to the Nightrider!

Nearly finished the XB, A little more wiring and weathering to do.


The Facon ute and caravan is underway.
evergreen and plywood has come to my aid
for this one! the flying debris will be the hardest to get right.

I really love how they have removed the left hand
wheels to allow the car to get through.
One of my all time fave movies
and I still have the nerv to pick faults with it.

I can live with pretty much all the "faults" except that huge fuse hanging out of the back of the Monaro as it takes its last flight.

Checkmate - what happened to Max's panel van? Does it still exist in that form?
