The WIP for this build is chocked with pictures and narrative, so here we will go straight to the final pictures. Enjoy!































The build and base together is 26" long, 8" wide and 10" high at the POD end. Made of a 1/25 49' car, a 1/48 Mig, parts from a 1/48 Phantom F-4, a broken cake decorating set, rollers from doggie poop bags, and all kinds of parts from my spares, metal, and styrene reserves. The base is the front wooden panel off of a demolished vanity topped with a piece of styrofoam. The foam was covered with paper towels, Hodge Podge medium, small stones, some hot glue and a handful of paints. The pilot is a 1/25 "midget racer" figure ordered online. Mostly Tamiya and Vallego paints. The idea was adapted from Star Wars Pod Racing with a mix of Road Warrior and Steampunk thrown in for flavor.

Hi Ted,
congratulations on your amazing GB finish. Truly creative work, love the way you captured the garage building look of the pod racer. And very fitting display, looks so dynamic! All round very inspiring build and a true winner IMHO ;-)

Great to see you get over the finish line on this group build Ted, and wow ! What a finish it is.

The whole concept works really well, all of that scratch work really paid off and the colours and weathering look fantastic. The display base sets it off Perfectly, this is a real cracker mate

Pete and Tim,

Thank you very much for the positive comments. I enjoyed this enough to create a "companion piece" at some point. Thinking about a 50's model Cadillac with spider type mechanical legs and a tank turret top.

Michael, thank you very much---its really fun to just let go and get crazy with this model building thing once in a while. SO very different from a kit where all the details are dictated.
