1:18 scale greenlight Fury Road conversion

Postby mahenoguy » Fri Dec 01, 2017 7:52 pm

I was trying to build an evolution of the interceptor diorama ( see thread of same name ) in 1:24 scale based on the Aoshima kits . The cost of the kits had me stalling until the new Greenlight 1:24 scale MM1 version came out , only to be sadly disappointed with the quality . The 1:18 scale Greenlight version look pretty awesome though and as i had already pre ordered the new Autoart tuned version I decided to buy the much cheaper model as well and convert it into the Fury Road edition .
first I stripped all the fittings and paint off and as the boot ( trunk ) doesn't open on this model i had to cut out the lid with a Dremel cutting tool . I molded on the poorly fitting roof spoiler with car putty then painted the whole thing a rust base colour . The lower panels where masked off as per the movie and the rest sprayed with a thick coat of satin black. this well represents the sun bleached finish of the original and when the masks are removed leaves a realistic raised edge around the chipped paint .The tank , drums and jerry cans are all metal , the Later being 4X4 RC accessories and the tanks being cut from various brass tubes with their ends soldered from brass sheet . I still have some clutter to add to the interior but the Interceptor evolution is now complete ( eerrr .... except for the razor cola , but that's a future post ) albeit it in a different scale to what i started in . will post more picks when i get around to a base and case for it

Thanks guys....I will build a razor cola version when my wife lets me buy another one , I've kind of blown my mad max budget for the time being . A bit off the mad max theme , but in the same vein i guess as it is all about decay and deterioration , check out these pics off a recent wreck model i built for exhibits i hold periodically of relics and photos of the same vessel . it depicts the wreck of the T.S.S Maheno , beached on Queensland's Fraser Island . It shows the wreck as it appeared in 1969 , with considerably less of the ship visible today .

I don't know what kind of job you have and what you earn, but if you did this with a "small" budget you should consider an other career.
that is so damn detailed, it could be used in a film about the ship.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.
