B.O.B. v.2.0

Postby highfatalityroad » Tue Apr 10, 2012 11:21 pm

I was handling my most recent B.O.B hotwheels model the other day and clumsily dropped it, breaking off the spoiler. so since I have obtained some epoxy putty, I disassembled and stripped it, and re-did it with fender flares and the nose cone lights.

I'm still getting used to working with the putty but this is a start.

it's shaping up, pardon the pun. Remember that that spoiler has softer, rounded edges. The BoB is two tone with matte black. Other than that it's looking pretty good.

good point about the spoiler, I'm doing that on my next round of builds in progress now.

as for the matte on the BoB from the MM movie car, I guess I missed that, do you have a pic of that?

It's probably easiest to see on some of the replicars. Here's a link to the main page fan carshttp://www.madmaxmovies.com/mad-max-fans/mad-max-replica-cars/mad-max-interceptors/index.htmlTake some time and check them out, you'll pick up a lot of ideas.
Here is a couple shot of mine (before I putter better wheels on it) to give you a rough idea of how it looks.

oh ok right, I see now. thanks.

I think the movie car was more a satin than a flat black, eh? cause the difference was not as noticable in the movie.

with as much trouble as gloss painting can be, I should make it all flat black. but I do that with my gas tank versions, some of them.

Yes, they used satin black on the movie car and the replicars. I used flat because, well, it's what I had on hand. The upside is that it shows up nicely in pictures. The 1:160 in my signature is done with just flat black.
