    I just got 404 error messages when I tried to open your links :-/ do you use Photobucket? I find that works well enough

    Sorry ’bout that… Here is what I was trying to show, in one image.

    Right okay 😉 Well the top left image looks solid, but the other two are pretty warped ^^; honestly, separate them out and upload them individually 🙂 works better.

    Liking the look though! Could do a bit more work on those side armour panels, but I like the look of that chain gun ;-D

    What would you suggest for making the armor look better?

    I would carve some little chips out of the side with a x-acto knife to break up the long straight edges and, if you have a little pin drill, drill some bullet holes in there!

    If you have any 1mm plastic rod (you can get it from Plastruct, they make rods in all shapes and sizes) you can cut little “rivets” to stick along the top of the armour plates 😉 Really helps make it look like something that has been bolted on 🙂

    Thanks for the tips, although it might be a while until I actually try them.

    I will be posting my first car on here soon, as soon as I finish adding on the side armor plating. It is my first car so I hope it turns out well.

    Hey well look at that! He looks pretty cool 🙂

    I’d suggest you try dry brushing him a little with a light colour, beige works well. Or try splatting on some muddy browns around the tires, they wouldn’t be squeaky clean in the apocalypse 😉

    Here is car that was originally Drew’s, but he gave up on it so I used it.

    Is that a chop shop special? 😉 It looks like the front of one and the rear of another! 😀 Fantastic stuff!

    Any thoughts on rams/spikes on the bumpers?

    Okay, so this next one I MIGHT have gone a little overboard with…

    In the future the deadliest cars are made by…washing machine detergent manufacturers ;-p

    So these ones look like a nice motley crew, any ideas of how you’d like to armour them up and customize them? 🙂

    I’ve got a few ideas for what I’m going to do with ’em.

    After working on it for 9 days spread over 2 and 1/2 months, I am proud to present my first vehicle; “The Sting.”
