Vrooom vroom!!!!

Hi all,

Decided to make a few RT civilian cars out of 1:43 scale toys. I found a few cheap from a local guy and set about converting them for tabletop use. Read along if this is your sort of thing.

Group shot of how they were when I bought them.

Pulled to bits.


Filing the wheel arches.

Carving and stuff.

Yeah, and more of the stuff.

Added some headphone doodads for engine pods.

Yes, can see.

Added some greeblies.

More of the greeblies and undercoat.

Base coat and black in wash.

Highlights and then details.......

I decided that I was getting a little bored with my beach backdrop so I had a think about it and came up with another one. Not sure if it's got the same impact as the beach one, and I think it might be a little too dark, but it's a changer nonetheless, what do you guys think?

I actually used these as a bit of a test for a windscreen effect. I wanted something a bit cartoony and easy to replicate. Stumbled across an old tutorial online and copied it. I'm pretty happy with the results and I'll be using it on my spaceship.....when I eventually get off my arse and finish it that is.

Forgot to mention that I mounted them on horsey bases.

Anyway, that's it for now guys.

Cheers :)
