Two Builds - Renault Magnum + Land Rover


 Share

Recommended Posts

This project, like all my other projects, had to be different. :) This one I call - Smashed! It is a Renault Magnum. I looked at many pics of different truck crashes and went on from there. Enjoy the photos.

This second build is an Italeri 4 wheel drive 109" LWB kit I bought on Ebay. I am not completely finished with this kit yet. I still have many extra accessories to add, which I'm waiting on. This little vignette is called 'Proud'. The African driver is proud of how he managed to pack his entire belongings in one go.

 

The idea comes from looking at many pictures of various overloaded vehicles from around the world. Some more rediculous than others. I am adding another figure of a guy taking a pic of the African driver and his personal belongings.

 

Will post pictures when I've completed this project. The figure is one of my first try at building a decent figure so please go easy. It is not 100% complete yet.

Looks like the IKEA commercial on Steroids!!!! Excellent work! Love the Fifth wheel grease effect. Looks just our Sterlings! Really believable.

Sorry I was referring to all the stuff Piled on the Land Rover made me think of the IKEA Bug! Probably just me.

These are very interesting and unusual subjects, and both show considerable skill and imagineering. Very well done!

I made this diorama for my 'Crash' Renault Magnum tracktor unit, before putting it up for sale. This is the result, Unfortunately the forum does not allow me to post more than 5 pics at a time. So I'll have to wait until some post before I can post another 5 pics:
