Always pop into your local toyshop on a regular basis, because eventually you find something you're looking for. Since I started converting vehicles for Machinas I've wated a Volkswagen bus or camper-van, because I can think of few iconic vehicles less likely to make an awesome post-apocalypse racing vehicle. Today I found one:
It's not quite a stubby little camper-van I really wanted, but it will do.
At this stage it's not a threatening prospect. Now I need to decide how to tool it up. At the moment I feel a flamethrower coming on, but we'll see. It wil need a name, and a new paint-job as well.
Here it is with another vehicle waiting to be processed - a Hot Wheels 1950s car of some sort. I'm not very good at identifying cars.
