One of my smaller projects I did in the background. My main focus on this build was to use bits from my spare box, in which I keep items left over from other projects. I wanted to create a post-apocalyptic vehicle, which screamed "badass". Add an uncommon female figure to it and you've got the recipe for a great model. Set your creativity free!

Post Apocalyptic Mad Gal (Gadot)
27 Jan. 2019 | Kibworth, UK | By Niek Nijsen
I always liked the "over-the-top" approach to vehicles used in post-apocalyptic movies such as 'Mad Max'. In an attempt to set my creativity free and also clear up some of the unused parts from older projects, I decided to build one of my own. Set in 60 years from now in a land where water is scarce and most oceans have dried up, I used the Mercedes AMG GT3 car as a base model and added various bits. These include a Merlin engine and guns from the Spitfire, a Hind rocket pod converted to a fuel tank, mesh from the King Tiger to protect the windows, rear wheels from the Lancaster, a scratch-build bumper, hood ornament from the F-16 and home-made decals. Inside the car is a seat from a Huey for the passenger, a shotgun for self-protection, old maps (self printed) from Route 66, and a poster from the movie 'Wonder Woman'. If you look closely, you might notice the resemblance between our female protagonist and the one in that particular movie. There might even be a hint in the model's "name".
Enjoy the photos!
