    This is my first TRUE custom :D 
    I started it back when the movie came out, but gave up.
    I had already spray-painted it. I eventually found it.
    So this is pretty much what I've done so far :)

    The large over-sized gun from the 3 3/4" War Machine I'm going to
    use as the mini-gun. It's in great size with the rest of the car.

    See? Good size

    Missing one wheel though :(  I might make an explosion throwing
    the car though. I could turn it into a statue. PM for tips on doin that. I need halp

    Current progress

    I actually already redid the windshield

    [​IMG]

    Well, that's all for now

    And a sneek peak of another custom. I might turn it into a... Sorta popular TF

    EDIT:
    I've redone the windsheild so that it's more pic accurate.
    I'm thinking of using a straw to make those side pipes. I can
    just cut hole in them. I've sliced the cardboard in half
    on the roof and hood so it looks better. Pics later

    UPDATE:
    I completely redid the windshield. Much better

    I'm surprised it's held up so well actually.

    It's just going to be armored plating.

    Well, it's currently just a Dollar General Solstice...

    Yeah, the carboard is going to be armored plating when this is all finished.
    What I will spray paint black and grey on most of the cardboard.

    I like this. Any post-apocalyptic weapons-laden vehicle is cool with me. I might have to make a transforming version out of HA Barricade. This car is 1:18 scale, right? Good idea with the cardboard: I thought it was a rough draft for extra armor myself. Though I'm sure that it will look better once its painted, have you thought about replace the cardboard with styrene - or plexiglass?

    Looks kinda weird to me. Why don´t u use styrene or some other plastic. It sculpts way better than cardboard.

    I don't have it within grabbin' range like the cardboard :p 

    I think it is 1:18 because it's pretty size accurate next to HA BB

    I know, it puts that oversized thing to good use

    I've had my idea since Iheard no toy was coming :D 

    I found the last wheel! So I'm happy.
    I'm using straws for the side pipes

    Put on two layers of paint. It's a bit rough, but it's supposed to be that way
