Interceptor - End of the Road

Postby aussie muscle » Sun Nov 20, 2011 8:47 pm

Last year i was invited to the Bairnsdale car show to display my Mad Max and other TV/movie models. unfortunately in the afternoon, the sun got through the marquee onto my display case. they got so hot, that they all melted!
Since this model was fairly badly damaged i decided to make lemonade and build it into the crashed interceptor, just before it blows up. I dented it up a bit more and i removed the roof spoiler (i imagined that it'd get broken off when the car rolled, as it's only fibreglass), and also some of the LH wheel arch (as it definitely broke off). i cut off the front (which was broken earlier in the movie). i weathered it a bit more (to match my interceptor 2) but added some silver scratching. The 'stuff' from the interior was spread around the debris field. i'll make a better display base for it, so the stuff can be mounted permanently. I'm thinking i'll need 'max' hiding behind a rock and a bad guy with a crossbow.

That looks great!
In this way the model car isn't really wasted.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.
