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.
