Mad MAx Interceptors

Postby Night Stalker Customs » Mon Oct 04, 2010 8:38 am

Hello, my name is Chris Walker aka "Night Stalker". I am new here but been around the diecast toy car biz for a while.
A few pics of my work have been posted, and I thought I would share a few more of the Interceptors I built.

In the first pic the primered one is a HotWheels XB Falcon that is being converted to a 4-door to more accurate. Not the exact body used but close enough for what we can get. And of course the finished painted HotWheels Falcon with just the yellow paint job.
The fully detailed painted version is about as close as anyone is going to get to the Yellow MFP Interceptors from the movie. Since they don't make a Falcon XB 4-door in diecast at all. The next closest thing is the Falcon XY by Biant. The hood, grill, bumpers, etc are wrong and have to be modified.

I added a hood from a Falcon XB and added the hoodscoop. Then the roof spoiler was added along with the new bumper and spoiler. The front was lower and i added the chrome Sunraysia 6 spoke wheels just like MAX had on his car along with the graphics to reflect that. A custom siren was added to the top. The lights on the roof are only sitting there. I am not sure if I will go with the lights just glued to the roof or a custom roof mount with lights as seen on the primered version in the pic that is under construction. And also shown is a Road Warrior Interceptor version still in the WIP stages. I hope you like them

The old tail lights on the 4door bothered me. So I cut them off and modified them into more movie correct taillights. I added the more correct lights and lightbar on top as well. pics are crappy from my my cell phone. Will take better pics when I showcase the whole MadMax/Road Warrior collection. Hope you like.

This sounds familiar to me. Since posting photos of my Road Warrior Interceptor I have 'fine tuned' several details. It has even inspired me to improve elements of my Miniceptor in 1:160 scale.

Those are amazing! I just stripped and painted my Hot Wheels Falcon XB (my first HW project). I just did it in gloss black, and the chassis/wheels/tires in flat black. Looks sweet, if a little rough.

Here's a question maybe you can answer: Do spray paints for models (like Testor's) have smaller droplets, or will you get the same coverage as with regular spray paint?

UNless you use an airbrush, all the spray "droplets" will be the same size roughly between all the various cans. Airbrushes just atomize the paint a little better than cans.
But a tip you can use with those cans is, before you spray with them, soak them in warm water. It helps the paint come out smoother and better. I usually run the water in the kitchen sink until it is hot. Then fill up a bucket. put your can sin there for about 30mins and your good to go.
