Wargaming Tradecraft: Postapocalyptibuggy [Part 21]


Postapocalyptibuggy [Part 21]

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.

The washed wood looks a lot better now that it's dried.
And a drybrush to the black wood of light grey and white creates coal.
For the stove!

Hobby cars don't get put up on blocks.

and on the snowy base...

Here's the rear tire, and the below shots are showing melted wax dripped on the snow in bulk. The bottom right photo is how the wax looks after taking my mini torch to it to thin it out and let it naturally spread and level across a larger area of the snow.


Don't forget to run your tire through the wax while it's drying. This will create some realistic looking tracks.
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.
