After playing some Dark Future scenarios, Keyan Sark made me a proposal I simply couldn't refuse, converting a car to make the last of the V8's Interceptors.
No bells ringing? Then, you are too young, I'm afraid. That's the car from the first Mad Max movie, the one Mel Gibson uses for his revenge (and uses again in Mad Max 2). Being the whole game a tribute to the movies, having this car looked not only a good idea, but even the logical step to take!
Well, no more disgressions. Keyan provided me the 'raw material', this 1/64 '73 Ford Falcon XB GT (the original car used in the movies) from Hot Wheels:
|Hmm there's some work to do here|
|I forgot the windshield piece for this photo|
These Hot Wheels cars arte insanely well built, it was a challenge taking the pieces apart and not destroying the whole plastic structure in the process.
After some green stuff work, the front part looked like that:
|Not exactly industrial, but it works|
I used an old toy scuba tank from my childhood that I had strangely kept over the years. Man, this car is really handcraft made!
|Well, this begins to look what we were aiming for|
