Figured I'd create a thread to show off the finished cars from my thread in the Sculpting sub forum. Here's the Europa Magnus Hover Wagon: Wasn't really sure how to do the glass area. I am happy with my color choices, but not sure about my highlighting. Here's my delivery van: I didn't even try to sand out the print layer lines, since these are supposed to be quick and dirty, yet practical pieces to practice painting techniques on.
Well, sort of. My husband went a-prowling for steampunk-themed minis for my birthday earlier this month and found these 15mm armored cars for the game "All Quiet on the Martian Front." They are said to be based on Rolls Royce Spectres, circa. 1910-ish. While assembling them, the theme from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" kept running through my head. Oh yes, assembly. There were no instructions. Grr. What I had were three baggies, each containing the following pieces (originally the tyres were on sprues): After a while I worked out that the chassis went over the running boards, but its wheel axles slipped under the mud guards and the rear box. This had to be done before the wheels were attached, but fortunately I had only tried to assemble one car to start and the epoxy was still soft. Here are partly assembled cars: After a dry fit, I decided that priming the inside of the car bodies black would save a lot of heartache later. I did not glue down the turrets because I like being able to pose them. Hopefully this will not be too much of a nuisance to paint. And here they are: I find the green paint job on the box cover utilitarian but uninspired. I think I may go down weirder paths.
I don't want to put this in Show Off, since I didn't make it. It was in my Pinterest feed today. But it's no freakin' cool I and I thought everybody could use a little inspiration to lift them up. Believe me. You're gonna like this. French Modeling Site. Edit: Turns out 1/24 scale.
