Planet Terror - Wray's Wrecker

From the Grindhouse movie 'Planet Terror', this is a replica of Wray's International KB-8. It's a rough tow truck that's ideal in the zombie apocalypse. There are no 1/25 scale kits or diecast of the International available (ever) so i picked up one of NAPA's promotional 1/32 diecast trucks.

I discarded the stakes from the bed and stripped the truck to it's constituent parts and resprayed it in green and red, using the 'salt technique' to set the aggressive peeling paint effect. the tray was painted to look weather beaten wood and i built a tow mechanism and head rack from styrene and spare bits. The bullbar is styrene stock. The whole thing was heavily weathered with acrylic paints. the decals were home printed.

Killdozer!

Great job on modelling this.

The story behind the movie truck is great too. A production guy had been passing this old abandoned wrecker for ages, dreaming to get it into am movie. Planet Terror comes along and boom, his dream comes true.
