Built this last year and have put up some random pics here and there, but none of great detail yet, so just took some. :D
It started life as a Cavalier Interceptor kit.
I read that Cameron used an F-100 for the rear suspension of the real Razor, so i found an F-100 kit and did the same for the rear of mine.
The rest of it - Spear gun, double blower, caltrop dropper etc, was all kit bashing from other muscle cars and bits n pieces round the house.

Your harpoon gun is the business ! Can't wait to see your new one . Do you already have a base model ? If not , could i recommend the DDA road legends MM1version .

( not my listing by the way )
Not only is it the cheapest 1:24 scale interceptor you can get , but being die-cast could be polished to almost a mirror then lacquered . It's a bit of grind to get the boot off and the metal in the quarter panels gets a bit thin grinding off the rear spoiler , but its a decent shape and nothing looks more like metal than ...metal . I too wish i didn't weather mine , it just kind of happened when i got Baker's soldering fluid on the body by accident and it made cool corrosion marks in the panel lines . I gave it to a mate for his Birthday so it's too late now .
Please Please post construction shots , keen as to see it . Your 1st version is the best I've seen on the Web .

That speargun was made up of lollypop sticks, notches cut up and down them.
Toothpicks for the spears, thread thin wire through the tips to make them barbed, like the real one in the film.
And a mixture of kit bashing for the rest.
Caltrop dropper - i bought some model railway tracks for that and the scale was absolutely perfect.
Caltrops themselves took an entire weekend to cut and bend tiny pieces of wire to make spikes, was a nightmare.


I'm gonna use the Cavalier kit again, to build the next one.
I bought 3 of these back in 2002, when they were like 50 bucks retail, so i have some spares.
Plus it's a light plastic, not the hard resin of the Planet x and it's really easy to carve up and customize, real durable and bends to your will.
Eventually i'll make the Fury Road Black on Black using the 3rd Cavalier, but till then, Razor is priority.

Working on Nux's chevy on and off too and a garage kit of Furiosa.
