Camaro Z28 Dawn of the Apocalypse Zombie Car
« on: Thu Dec, 12, 2013, 01:50:PM »
Hi,
I purchase a couple of the Dark Word Creation Zombies the other day and saw the competition was to finish this Friday - but having been following SMA's Mustang on his YouTube channel he says it has been extended until the 31st Dec
So Chaps, here is something I started a couple of weeks ago after thinking what can I do next, the wife said not another rusted car please - so I came up with the following...




This is not the base I will be using, it's to stop the car from rolling away..

Masked ready for some Alclad silver

Added a little rust for the steel plates.


Now looking at stowage options.
A bit more weathering to do on the car and finish off the stowage.
The weapons are from Live-Resin (purchased before I found the Dark World Creations website.
Front mounted M134D Miniguns and roof mounted M2 Browning.50 Cal Machine Gun.

I will have Jared either standing in the background or foreground - not decided yet.
Well - I hope you like it so far, I will get on and finished the base this weekend and make a start on painting Jared.
Post soon.
Richard

Hi Richard, welcome to SMA. That looks sick man. Very cool.

Where did you get the stowage bags?

Way Cool Richard! Excellent work! Actually Scott has increased the End Date to Jan 31st, so this will give us all a little more time to do a better job. 8)

Hi Scott,
I got them from Plus Models, they come in different combinations singles and packs, they are 1/35 scale but do fit in with the car.
Cheers

They look great in 1/25. I wish we had more weapons in 1/25.

Definitely an interesting conversion there

Ok, some work done over the weekend in-between working on the car which decided it wasn't going to lock any more Arrrgh!.
Well here is where I have got to...


Added some razor wire for the bull bars plus a chain for getting out of those tricky situations


Jessica....


Stowage added tied down and dusted.

A little more to do on the base and some further weathering - I will take some better images and a proper camera rather than my iPhone.
Comments very welcome - thanks for stopping by.
Cheers
Richard
