The ongoing chronicle and my first attempt at posting Work In Progress shots, this is my entry for the Massive Voodoo Mad Max Car Competition. I'll list them all on my Step by Step page, or you can view the current WIP series.
|Hobby cars don't get put up on blocks.|
|and on the snowy base...|
The hood goes on, and I've propped it open with a toothpick. Super glue, obviously, since it's wood on plastic.
|decided to add more "ice"|
I decided not to glue the cab on. This way it's removable so that down the road (heh) you can pull it off and look at the detail inside. (That would otherwise be hidden by scratched and meshed windows.)
|I love how that ice looks|
It's not quite done as there's a few final touches I'm planning.
The snow isn't done yet - I want to build it up a little, drift it into the tires and perhaps add some rocks / plant life.
I'm torn about how much weathering I want to do to the vehicle itself. I was planning on dusting it with some grey/white paint as snow, maybe some fake snow here and there, but I really like how it all came together. It needs something, but I'm going to have to be careful.
