The ones sold by GW are very outdated, meh-looking, and overpriced. Many other companies do a version, but they're often solid resin blocks which puts them even more expensive. I wanted to see if I could craft one out of basswood, partly to test my ability to make 3d objects, but also partly in case gorkamorka starts up again!
After a mis-step with scale, and an outcome that looked more trukk than buggy, I managed this:
|Proper mad, proper orky!|
I went for a typical looking roadster: tombstone front, enclosed engine until I can work out the V8 look in card, and funky custom wheels that worked way better than I could have hoped.
|Sorry for the blur, pretend they're speed lines!|
On this you can see the driver's step, which is essentially just the plug to make the side plate stay on, expanded slightly to hide its original purpose. Right behind is a plate without that, and I'll have to look for a way to make it make more sense.
Soon, painted pics, and my second attempt at a buggy. Also, Mad Max style cars!
