Here you go guys! This model is one of four I am making inspired by the latest Mad Max movie "Fury Road". Note: this car is not based on an actual car from the movie... But I think it will fit right in!

Now, I will show you the chassis first...this is almost all scratch built... Other than the engine seats and fuel tanks!

I started this build with a complete 1:18 model and all I am using is the body shell... All you have to do is figure out what model's body shell will drop right on this!

The chassis inmediately screamed "baja bug" to me. There's a V8 Beetle in the movie as inspiration?

One from the seventies?

Nope not the seventies! Yes that one was in the movie but mine isn't as extreme as that in terms of the body....

As a clue - mine donor model is a special edition one... Celebrating a significant event for beetles...
