My Aoshima Interceptor

First of all, let me take this opportunity (for those few that may care) to officially say;
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack. :o
Saw the distant lights, and decided it was time to come home.


Now, to celebrate, I present pics of my Aoshima Interceptor build.
Not the "version II" with the corrected rear wheels (which still aren't correct!)
But pretty dang close to movie accurate. I lengthened the rear shackles for a proper stance,
Completely scratchbuilt the rear shelving area, and added many small details overall.
Enjoy!

Nice work - especially the interior.

Thanks!
The interior received (and needed) the most work.
I used a lot of pause on my DVD, and photos of Scott Smith's MM2 replica for reference.

Great work. I'm currently building this, and the interior really has me hung up. I think I found a source for the bolt cutters and ax I need.

Wish I could recall exactly where I got mine... I want to say it was in Tamiya's Garage/Tools kit, but it may have come from a 1/24 German Panzer kit. I can't recall. I scratchbuilt an axe from a bit of sheet plastic and a length of plastic rod.

Also, at the time I could not figure out exactly what was to the left of the strobe light mount.
Now, it would appear it is a dolls head / toy for Dog. (?) Still not sure if that is what appears onscreen, but I simulated the brown lump that I could discern from screen stills on DVD.) :?

Its a shrunken head, hanging by the hair.
I was gonna try to do the silly putty mold and cast some tools off a GI Joe Mobat. Which was made from a 1/24 Tamiya tank anyways.

Well, I can't take credit for the Dinki-Di can, it was part of the kit.
But nearly everything else in the back of the car was built or added by me. (including a cardboard box of Dinki-Di)

The version II kit has revised "bare" door panels.
As this is the version 1 kit, I made my own "bare door skins" and glued them over the existing door panels.

Also, the Max figure was a German tank commander from a 1/24 Jagdepanzer Kit (I'm sure I misspelled that :lol: )
