Hi people, here I want to show some work in progress pictures of my Mad Max Competition entry. I have to apologize right in the beginning because the second half of the creation process is not documented with pictures! This is because, in the end I had to organize my move from Chile, enjoy the last common days with my girlfriend and finishing the Groover all at the same time. Thus, there was no time for any pictures unfortunately... However, I think I learned a lot in this first competition I participated (of course just for fun!).
Anyways, enough blabla, now to the pictures:
Only, then I started building: First I sprayed a base coat of Chaos black on the parts still in the frame. (At that time I did not know how I would do the outside of the bus. Thus I let it in white (which was a mistake in hindsight ;-)). Then I started assembling the parts. This was very difficult, as every beginning is difficult. I just did not know exactly how I would implement the modifications. But I had to start somewhere, so first: I changed the tiny engine of the T1 to a big block from a really cool military car (Rommel's rod, but that's a different story...)
I changed the driver seat to a much bigger (and hoepfully) more comfortable) one, in fact Rommel's seat! :-)
Ah and of course: I had this idea to do an old hippie car. I liked the idea a lot, to take something that was used as a symbol for peace and harmony to create a brutal post-aüocalyptic beast out of it...
