    Made some progress on my 1:25 scale Barricade. Here's the earlier WIP thread to compare.

    At this stage, I've basically added most of the car's outer shell. Some parts are not shown ("police" white doors, back quarter panels on the forearms) because they have not been attached yet.

    The chest parts are removable for access to the flashing police lights.

    The uppers arms were pretty tricky. Tried my best to match the look of the movie design.

    I'm in the process of painting and working on the head (also not pictured here).

    Getting some custom labels from reprolabels.com for the police car details.

    Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you'd like to share.

    Impressive! youre doing a great job so far!

    Respect the head, have you tough about using the FAB figure as base? that head if im not mistaken could have the size you need for this :)

    This is awesome! I love scratchbuilding! I don't recommend the RR head. I used it on my Deluxe: custom[​IMG]

    Maybe you could use the FAB head as a base? isn't that one bigger?

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure the FAB head is too small.

    Love the hands. That's some serious time invested right there and well worth it.

    Um...what is Alternator size? I've never had an Alternator, so I don't know how big those are.

    1:25 & 1:24 are the typical size of a plastic car model kit, which this is made from.

    Alternators are also 1:24 scale.

    1:24 scale? Um...I have no idea how big that is. Can you show me a pic of an Alternator beside a Deluxe class toy?

    Love the way this custom looks, but why did you change the arms so much?

    I'm not sure I follow.

    There are parts of the Mustang model that are being painted before I put them on the arms. The white doors that read "Police" and the forearm quarter panels that read "911" have not been attached yet.

    Is there another aspect of the arms that seems radically changed?

    I think I stayed pretty true to the look of the arms. The legs, on the other hand, do not duplicate the original design as much as I would have liked. Final painting and detailing should help a little.
