I want to show you a model that I made in 2017 for a Facebook model competition (won it). The theme was post-apocalypse. I used a Chinese toy car: Chevy Camaro '67 in 1:34 scale and a 1:35 WWII figure from Tamiya (with a WH40K helmet). I also used accessories for WWII Tamiya military models. The base is made of styrene foam, the billboard is a vintage advertisement print and glued to the styrene frame. The bundle on the roof is a tissue soaked in wood glue, placed on polystyrene cubes
Hi, Had a few weeks off from modelling, needed a bit of down time after the last project had idea of doing a Model T ford or other rusted vehicle, but remembered that I had already started a VW Samba Bus. So what to do with it. Well it will be rusted and a bit run down. Whilst at IPMS Avon Model Show I picked up a couple of figures from Nuts Planet, Overwatcher and Vagabond. This project will feature Vagabond who has come across a broken down Samba Bus, but where is everyone... I already had a base which was going to be used for something else that never materialised, so halfway there with this project. Going to have bus stuffed with stowage and stuff scattered on the floor around the bus, as if whoever owned the bus has fled or worse turned... Figure is well cast, no seam lines to clear up, cast in grey resin, comes with a rucksack,jerry can, sawn off shotgun plus some pouches to go on his belt. This will be my second Samba Bus, the other was a Post Apocalyptic Battle Bus. More tomorrow. Cheers Richard
