Default 68 Charger 'Meat Grinder'

Some photos of a recent project. It started as a 1:25 scale Revell white 68 Dodge Charger. Even after trimming the body down 1/2" or so (you can see the discreet cuts at the door and roof) I had to add a spacer to a long chassy. After a flat black base coat, I decided to make it into something reminiscent of the cult classic Death Race 2000, adding the aluminum spikes and window cage, and bloody wheel wells as a final touch. Still needs some work, but here she is.

Thanks for the compliments, my next project is much more mundane Working on a 97 Viper GTO at the moment, when I find the time.

Very original. Nice work. We should have "death machine" themed COTM comp.

Sounds fun to me, but my demented mind can come up with far more....enthusiastic...machines designed for death on wheels Plus I love competition.

Default Meat Grinder Redux

So I took some time off from my hovercar project while I wait on some parts. With the extra time on my hands, I decided to go back to an earlier project I was never quite happy with.

The 'cage' on the windshield never really looked right in my opinion, so I completely redid it from aluminum, cut a viewing slot and made some bullet hits, imagined a severed head bouncing over the hood and splatting on the window, and there ya go.

I also wanted to add more blood to the hood, and make it look like someone wrote the name of the vehicle in the gore. Maybe 'wash me' would have been more appropriate
