Here are my first attempt at masking some cars for GaslandsJanuary 1, 2018 at 10:50 pm #3003
Hmmm can’t add any picsJanuary 1, 2018 at 10:53 pm #3004January 1, 2018 at 10:57 pm #3005
Think I have worked it out
Any recommendations to improve my work is more than welcomeJanuary 2, 2018 at 7:18 am #3006
One tip, something I have noticed from my own cars, is to avoid painting the weapons totally different colours, as that draws attention to them being “bits”. I would consider using some green on the weapon casing somewhere, or use the gun metal colour on the car, to tie things together.
Cool builds though!January 2, 2018 at 12:24 pm #3008
Ah that’s smart I can see how that would improve them. I Will definitely give that a go.

Added a bit a the second colour to the weapons and they are much more tied into the model thanks for the adviceJanuary 2, 2018 at 5:52 pm #3018
Yes! Really cool.
Although now it’s more obvious that the machine gun still has a grip! 😀January 2, 2018 at 9:44 pm #3020
Yes noticed that but beyond my skill to hide that. I need to find better scale weapons other than left over 40k stuffJanuary 2, 2018 at 10:25 pm #3023
Nice one Dan, I like the corrugated iron on the side of the sedan, nice use of plastic containers there 🙂
40k guns are a pretty good scale for making beefy looking car weapons, I’d stick with it.
I’d super highly recommend getting a decent Xacto Knife. You can really easily cut through the 40K plastic stuff with it, and carve off grips and whatever. If you’re careful with your cuts you can even cut the magazines off the bottom of guns and reattach them at the side with some glue, for those side mounted cannons.
That said, I really like the look of the green lambo. I’m yet to give performance/exotic cars a go, but they look fun.January 3, 2018 at 12:53 pm #3026
Thanks flappy I have a good craft knife I will give it a go after putting a new blade on it. The corrugated iron is just painted corrugated cardboard from hobby craft. I use it for my shipping containers that I use on the tabletop. I will post some pics of them some time.
My choice of cars was simply down to what was in my oldest sons unused toy box (he is 15 now). Hope to have 3 gangs. One will be beat up American muscle one will be clean looking but a mix of types of cars and the other will all be Japanese imports. No names yet
