When I started out making post apocalyptic cars, I was buying up die cast cars and working on them. But they weren't great. They were hard to cut up, impossible to drill holes into, and were just too heavy. I found some plastic cars in the right scale on ebay and I cannot believe how wonderful they are. They allow my to be so much more creative with plastic rods and piping. Not only that, but you can leave the car body off the chassis until after painting. Very cool. So here is fire car #1. Been a joy to work on it.
