Anarchy/Bedlam road sign

Postby MFP 2020 » Tue Nov 24, 2009 12:11 pm

For my next project... :)

Are (or were) the Anarchie Road and Anarchy/Bedlam Road signs in MM1 a standard type of sign in Australia? Obviously they were made for the movie, but do they look as if they were based on actual signs in use at the time?

Most importantly, does anyone know what the measurements would be? (Ball park would be fine.) And finally, screencaps welcomed!

Remember, they use metric, so when you see 4", think 10cm. ;)

Very Cool.
If you need any help I work at a signshop and have already begun working on those particular signs, along with the Stop Prohibited area and skull sign, and even the "Fatalties" signs (to add to the Mad Max Cars "Signs & Props" area). If you are wanting to do them on your own more power to you as well, I just have all the stuff at hand to fabricate them as actual aluminum or Wood roadsigns.

Well, heck. I'm down for making my own wood signs, but I'd rather just buy the metal ones.

How about a Give Way sign that's been blasted with a shotgun?

Digging up this old thread again...

How does the sign attach to the post?

Thanks.

The 4x4 is notched on the back for the pointer I would be willing to bet based on this nice clear image. 1/2" plywood for the pointer, white paint and black paint. Lettered by hand but quite well by the looks of it. Ohter option as a movie prop is a cheap bracket to hold them together.

A notch. So simple I'mma smack myself. :)

Would it go all the way across the post, do you think, or just halfway?

The nicest finish is to notch all the way, paint the whole thing and assemble with stout woodscrews.
