Wargaming Tradecraft: Postapocalyptibuggy [part 5]


Postapocalyptibuggy [part 5]

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.

Going to have more spare time the next while, so expect many more updates on this, especially over the weekend.

Here's some of the stuff I worked with tonight:

We don't see a lot of this in miniature figure plastic sprues, but I've come across a few different parts working on this project like this. It seems for injection, these round dots are attached to a bunch of parts - pay attention so you don't miss removing them. (It's not always this obvious)
 I've glued the firewall on and a few bits to it as well. This was an awkward part to glue as for painting reasons I'm waiting until later to glue the sides on. To make sure everything was lined up, I had to tack the sides in place first.
 Here's the overhead console. Slicing the visor some, then a little bit more fire to make the plastic bendable and the visor flips down.
 Just piecing things together, no gluing, but this is how things are shaping up.
Since the overhead handles are so tiny, I put a couple drops of glue where they'll end up and used tweezers to attach the handles.
 The inside of the front grill with a few parts glued together.
 More inaccuracies with the instructions.

This part here doesn't have anywhere to connect to on the other side... so I've just glued it in place on one side and while everything is propped together, it'll dry.
This is another part that has no chance whatsoever of fitting where the diagram says it should... so I've glued it to another part it connects to, and will use that as the main supporting piece.
The hood with hinges glued on. Not much to say here, but I will return to the hood when it's time to create some more damage.

  1. Hi Dave, nice detail pics on your model, wish I had tutorials like this when I was 10! I like how you've broken the process down into steps instead of one huge post, that way we can load just the section we are looking for. Keep up the inspirational work!
