Jungle-engulfed Car

Hey folks,

I wanted to show off my nearly finished with my jungle overgrown car.




This was made from a used die cast car that had no rubber on its wheels. A bit of hammering bent it out of shape and a base coating of textured rusty red paint made I took old and junked. Various decorative plants and modelling foliage buried in the thick of the jungle.

The two sides are very different with the right side of the vehicle being much more open than the left. This will allow figures to use it for cover and for objective markers to be placed inside.
The addition of the colorful jungle flowers to the protruding vines was both an expedient way go tame some uncooperative parts and add extra character to the piece. The flowers themselves could be an objective.

  3. Very cool indeed! Seen something similar done with beaten up Tonka earth moving toys but without the jungle angle.
