General Lee Model - I'm Guessing 1/28 Scale?

Recommended Posts

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.

Edit: Turns out 1/24 scale.

Just'a good ol' boys

Never meanin' no harm.

Beats all you never saw

Been in trouble with the law

Since the day they was born

 

Staightnin' the curves

Flatnin the hills

Someday the mountain might get 'em

But the law never will

 

Makin' their way

The only way they know how

That's just a little bit more

Than the law will allow.

I'm a good ol' boy

You know my momma loves me

But she don't understand

They keep a showin my hands and not my face on TV

 

OH YEA

 

 

Yeeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaawwww!

 Yup - that board touching the roof of the car on the middle of the passenger side is attached to the tree branch, and the branch itself is touching the roof of the car. There's a better than average chance that tree has a wire frame inside it which goes right into the car at either one or both of those points.

 It took me about six hours of staring at that thing to figure out how the car was attached to it.

 

Alright, I've been looking, explain mad jack. I don't have 6 hours. Lol

 

looks to me, it's attached to the tree where the branch meets the roof on the passanger side

I read the thread, as it was asked by other posters on that site.

 

First answer from the author: Momentum! They were going pretty fast after all.

 

Second more serious answer from the author: There's a metal pin driven through the tree branch and hidden by the foliage. The car just hangs on the pin and can be removed at will.

 

There's a WIP on the third page that shows it.

page wouldn't translate for me, and my french is frankly, terrible. I should have studied it harder, but I hated my french teachers

Was also wondering when you'd come in and comment on this cool diorama, Buglips.

 

I saw this thread within a minute of it posting, and only just realized I hadn't actually posted my reply.  DDS2 ate all of my brain.

      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.

      I had ordered a bunch of the Christmas figures last week, and they arrived exceptionally fast. Which was awesome! However, the Christmas Knight model had a HUGE piece of flash on his left shoulder. Normally I'd just cut it off and go about painting. But it was the size of his shield, and attached firmly to his shoulder and left side of his face. 
      So I sent a message to the customer service guys with a photo of the figure, and in less than 24hrs, they responded that a new one would be sent out in a couple of days. Kudos folks! You all are still the best in the business! You're customer service is top notch. Love Reaper Minis, and will be looking forward to painting up these great Christmas figures. Especially Christmas Knight, and the animals. :D 
       
      All the Best, Happy Christmas and Merry New Year Reaper Folks!

      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.
