Post Apocalypse Rabbit Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

While rooting through various shelves I found this not far from the Thumpers. Around the same time I'd painted them I had found an old diecast car that had seen better days packed away in my boxes of model kit stuff. So I decided to "Mad Max" it a bit.100_0221.JPG.8d7fac643d433e25ed100c0a98c7aab5.JPG

Some testors CokaCola Red with layers of black and brown wash dirtied it up nicely. The rabbit originally came from a craft store many moons ago and had lost an eye along the way. So he got a felt eyepatch and a hair tie belt. The wood box and machine gun were made from balsa wood, the drum was a bit from GorkaMorka and the far tiny barrel was from a Lionel train set.

He certainly looks happy.

I dremeled off one of the side skirts to make room for a different wheel. The gas can is also from GorkaMorka and the stowage area is held in by a bit of necklace chain.

The bullbars were made with some random wire I'd found in the garage.
