What do I like about vacation? Being able to stay up late so I can finish something in one day. So here is my Ecto patrol car for my Ghostbusters. I decided to clean up the weathering a bit; it just wasn't doing it for me. The equipment package in the back was easy to do. It was just cobbled together with pieces of greenstuff, wood, plastic, wire and a metal piece from the bits box.
As a reminder (in case you hadn't seen the previous post), this car is named Ecto-Pt (patrol) and is meant to be a first-responder support vehicle rather than a full-sized main vehicle (such as Ecto-1.)
One car is still in transit (a Volvo for my civilian paranormal investigators ((who still have some grant money to spend.)) After the Volvo arrives, all that's left to do is paint a few more figures to represent some paranormal investigators. A couple fellas with equipment, a priest, a psychic, a professor and a couple interns/graduate assistants. This project has definitely been one of the funnest I've done.
That's great! I can see one thing that it needs - the license plate!ReplyDelete
Also, maybe the ghostbusters logo?
Oops! Yes, the license plate. I'm gonna hold off on the logo until I can draw one decently, or create a decal. My freehand on 3D objects is horrendous.ReplyDelete
I guess there are also a couple details such as a chemical warning label and the black and yellow caution lines I want to add here and there. Maybe I'll have to create myself a decal sheet.
This is ten kinds of awesome. GREAT job.ReplyDelete
What scale model did you use for your Ecto-Thunderbird?
It's 1/43rd scale. More specifically, I used a Testors "Easy Builder Thunderbird convertible."ReplyDelete
Great thanks for the info. I'm going to try to do this project. Thanks again for the help.ReplyDelete
