54mm Machinas: '59 Impala
My first earnest car for using in large-scale games of machinas, this is a 1959 Chevy Impala (next to its Hot Wheel counterpart.) The large car is 1/32 scale, and the smaller car is 1/64. I say "earnest" because my pickup truck is a tiny bit smaller than 1/32 scale and looks a bit small against the cars. That's OK, because the original intent of the pickup was to be a nice piece of terrain anyway.
The only other major changes I made on the larger vehicle were to the paint job (I rusted the passenger-side door a good amount), and the addition of an extra panel(line) on the roof. I achieved this by laying down a small strip of green stuff, blending the edges into the roof, and then drawing/etching in the panel line and rivet holes.
