A couple things to show here. First off is my other 54mm/1:32 scale Machinas car, a 58 Ford Fairlane. I used (a lot of) green stuff to add the body work so I could fit the heavy flamethrower.
And since the 1/32 scale version of this car had an open trunk, I chose to drop the flamethrower's fuel tank down into it. The tanks are simply some plastic tubing (from an assortment sold by Gale Force Nine.)
Something else to note: These vehicle are all made by a company called Arko. One of the minor cons is that the hoods/wind screens feel somewhat flimsy. To strengthen them, I disassembled the cars, turned them upside down and lined the inside of the hood/windscreen piece with a layer of two-part epoxy resin.
|I plan on doing these in 1:32 scale. For the ram car, I will use a Crown Vic|
instead of a DeSoto, and for the Runnin' Gunner (far right), I will use
a 55 Chevy instead of a 57.
