FURY ROAD This is my Fury Road inspired car to accompany our new Wasteland Warriors 20mm figures. The car I picked is a Hot Wheels 69 Tooned Camaro #Z28, because I think it sort of suits the Fury Road vibe, or will do when I’m done, but this is the base car. I bought it second-hand on eBay. As I wanted to install a driver, I drilled the rivet with my big DIY drill to get the body apart. It went better than I expected but you do need another pair of hands or a vice to hold the car body while you drill it.  I’m told the trick is to drill pilot with a smaller bit first and then open it up with a bigger one. Using a smaller drill first helps to stop the car trying to twist in your hand. The next step was to add some stuff. The long spikes are spears from North Star and the other bits and pieces are mostly from Implements of Carnage also from North Star. I fixed the bits on with superglue and tried to arrange the tyres around to help fix the rest in place securely.  I added a massive i-section beam bumper from a bit of plastic strut I had lying about.

I did a similar thing to the inside driving compartment. I painted in the metallic bits in Army Painter Gun Metal.
This shows he inside compartment back on the chassis, also I have painted the fan belt in black and highlighted it up using more Skeleton Bone.

With the undercoat all dry, I dry brushed the black with Army Painter Matt Black.
With the undercoat all dry, I dry brushed the black with Army Painter Matt Black mixed with Skeleton Bone, adding more Skeleton Bone, I did four layers gradually getting lighter and lighter. 
I glossed them all first then matt varnished with several coats of matt.
I then had to paint the War Boys to go in it and on it as I wanted more than just a driver.
I painted the flags in red using Army Painter paints, firstly Chaotic Red mixed with Dragon Red, then Dragon Red, and then Dragon Red mixed with Pure Red and finally a layer of Pure Red.
Next some graffiti in the style of the War Boys, in Army Painter Matt White.
The next step was to add some stuff. I added some poles for the weird flags; like that you see on the bike in Fury Road, this is when I drilled right through the car body and into my index fingers below. Do not do this as it hurts like hellÖ

I gave the body a light spray with car primer (which seemed appropriate!), this really pulls it all together to look at, but not essential if you arenít going to repaint the body.

The next step was to give the chassis and wheels a wash of Army Painter Quickshade Mid Brown Wash, and the end of the exhausts a daub of Dark Tone Quickshade.

What I thought was the last big job was varnishing, I glossed them all first then matt varnished with several coats of matt.

Then came the real tricky bit, getting it all back together. I wasn’t expecting it to be a problem, I had tried getting the bits back together before I painted them and that seemed ok. I had forgotten what several thickness of paint can do; I wasn’t expecting the build tolerances on Hot Cars to be so fine. The War Boys were glued in place with rapid epoxy resin, which I had coloured with a tiny spot of black oil paint to make it almost invisible. I had previously drilled holes for the roof crew to get a better fix and they went into the holes OK and were solid. The driver was again more problematical, as he didn’t fit in his slot either. Again I just didn’t allow for the paint, so I forced him in sting on a blob of epoxy to fix him in, even then I didn’t quite get him in the right place as his nogging is touching the underside of the car roof.  With the all Boys glued in place I trued to put the car back together and it was tight fit, very tight, I had to apply quite a bit of pressure, not helped by the bonce of the driver in the way, and I soon realised that once I had got it together it wasn’t coming apart, so I went for it and it clicked back into place, more or less. I then glued up what I could with superglue and filled the rivet hole with more epoxy to secure it. You will have noticed by now that some of the graffiti is a bit obscured by the exhausts, well I forgot they came up that far when I did the writing, which would mean a short trip to the Thunder Dome for me…

The driver I picked is from the new metal Wasteland Warriors but he needed some radical surgery to fit him in. I chopped him off at the waist below his trouser belt and he fitted in fine. I am probably going for a right-hand drive just for a laugh.

I then had to paint the War Boys to go in it and on it as I wanted more than just a driver, I planned firstly to have a guy firing out of the hatch and then I thought why not have a bloke standing in an improbable manner on the roof of the car behind the hatch, what could possibly go wrong! These are all from the new metal Wasteland Warriors by North Star sculpted by the great Mark Copplestone.
