Mad Max II Mack & tanker

Postby Wozza » Mon Oct 04, 2010 10:28 am

Hi all I am new here this has been posted on other forums, it's great to see other vehicles other than the black falcon interceptor which I am a big fan of as you can see.

they are 1/18 biante models.

The Mack & tanker was a big project for me about 10 months off & on (I'm lucky too make one model a year).
Armed with a blu-ray version of MadMax 2 & fifty odd screen shots and a deep breath the build was on.
The truck was made from two kits cutting into caps and swapping chassis around making more work for myself I think, but it was worth it at the end.
The stacks were stainless steel straws from a homewares shop cut down & the recovery ramps are laser cut from 1mm polycarb with vinyl cut and placed on it to give it a 3D look.
I have that build on photobucket .

The tanker was scratch build from hi density foam routed out then wrapped in sheet styrene with resin wheels and axels and this is the build.

And this is the finished model.

Some really good detail and nicely weathered. The welds look convincing. :)

That is hard core. Great work! I've given a lot of thought to tackling the same project in another scale and am inspired to start chopping stuff up.

Those are AMAZING. I never thought I'd see another tanker, especially one so well done. Do you have any problem with me adding your models to my site?

Thanks all for your comments Its a good feeling just to a finish model for once.
HUMVEE you are more than welcome to add my model to your website, if it helps inspire more people to do Mad Mad vehicles then thats my job done.
You have done a great job on your site, keep up the good work!
I'm looking at doing that old rusty chopped FX ute from Sky News for MM4 next.

Only a handful of these have been attempted with the tanker. This is hands down the best one. No fair using autocad, though ;) . Excellent job.

Yes I agree unless Cagman "wheres he at anyway?" comes up with something better I say Wozza's model is hands down the most detailed!

Thanks again for your comments guys, I had a look at Cagman's models and wow he's good!
It's got me motivated on my next project, here is a sneak preview so far.
I saw this on ebay

I think you know where I'm going with this

The rear guards look quite flared on the ute, sill needs more work.

I'll start a new post on the FX ute as I get more done.

Hey Wozza
Your tanker is a true masterpiece . I Have built the Mack but with the flatbed from the opening scene of MM2 . If you scroll through old posts on the " General Movie Disscussion " section and open the thread "Mundi Mundi Lookout "for pics . Also Humvee Driver has posted pics on his MadMax.Models.com website in the Diorama section . Unfortunately My model was destroyed when my Workshop burned down about 6 months ago , but your Tanker has inspired me to re-build it . I have weathered a 1/18 Interceptor ( Nose Clip intact ) which I will post soon + work on my Hotweels Interceptor . Once again ,Thanks for the inspiration wozza , keep up the truly excellent work.

Hi Mahenoguy
I just had a look at your diorama, what a great job your mad! But I can't believe it's gone!
I was glad to read no one was hurt but still to lose so much I don't know what to say.
One day I'm going to try to build the HMAS Diamantina for my dad, I must come see it next time I'm in QLD
he was Lt. Commander then, he was (handed the keys) to her in Sydney it was (mothballed at the time)
and sailed to Fremantle to replace HMAS Fremantle were I still live today. a friend had a 1/72 ship of the HMAS Junee he's dad was the CO.
Getting a bit off track here, all the best on the rebuilds can't wait to see the photo's, did you molded in the top spoiler on your 1/18 Interceptor?
It can be fiddly but makes it look a lot better.
