MadStang | post apocalyptic

I am fascinated by this modelling trend: post apocalyptic. I always wanted to make one of these kinds of cars. But I never found the necessary time, being involved in a lot of other projects. But the opportunity of making this project, I had in my mind, came this winter, and I did it!

So, the basis is a resin body, to difficult to put in the state as an ordinary street car. So I decided to turn it in an imaginary car. The engine missing, I replace it with a rotary engine used on the air-planes in WW I. The engine scale is 1/32nd but I find it fits the entire vehicle.

The project takes me 4 month of working but I do not regret a minute! This project contains also a presentation base (a desert street) and also a figure made from a WW II air-plane pilot (Trumpeter 1/24th Mustang P51) I’m very happy and proud with the result.

R12 | stance

One of my favourite cars ever remains the Renault 12. It was produced in Romania under the name DACIA. From 1966 Romania sign an accord with the French manufacturer, Renault, to produce cars in Romania, in Dacia Plant, near Pitesti city. But this is a history chapter I’ll develop in an special post.
The base for this modification is an 1/18th Renault 12 Gordini Metge produced by Solido. Is useless to describe all the modifications I made, just enjoy the photos below:
The engine bay was also detailed:As well as the interior:
