OK this was kind of a long time in the planning, wasn't sure if I could pull it off, but as usual once I got the parts together it went pretty fast. lots of stuff from the tool bin went on to this bad boy.

thanks guys.

the base is a HW Tow Jam with real rider tires. that wasn't cheap to start out with, but it was worth it, cause I got 6 rubber tires and didn't have to do any wheel work other than paint the hubs.

if you look close at the figures on the forks you may recognize them, they came with a cool JL movie car set (not MM) that you should be able to figure out.

those were the only human figures I could easily access in the right scale, I even bought some other people figures at Michaels, turned out to be too big. so I had to sacrifice these to the Humungus.

this is the first time I used modeling putty, actually it was pipe repair putty from Home Depot but same idea. that formed the mid-section/dash, as I had no other spare part or idea how to make that area and just went for it with the putty. I'll have to get some proper green stuff for future modeling but for now this did the trick.

and to build the upper base I had some plastic transparent card things laying around the garage that when cut and primered look like rusted steel plate, so that worked perfect.

one thing that worked really well was using picture hangers bent by pliers to form the front fenders and I was able to get them jbwelded on the middle chassis so they can float free over the wheels.
