I'm new to the scene and am just finishing off a racer I started 8 months ago (took a HUGE break in the middle). Is it to late to get it in the contest?...I'll have it done by April 18th, the day of the Seattle IPMS show, 'cause they love Sci-Fi in the North West
No pictures until it's done, I hate taking WIP photos, I like to keep up the work if I'm on a roll.
It's called the Alumalloy Arrow, built to compete in the Longline Racing Group. the cars are purpose built to drive in the empty utility trenches that run between the major cities (durring the war the utility trenches were abandoned as cities localized the power and water supplies.) the wires and pipes were mostly removed to be raw materials for the war effort, so after the war local hot rodders had an easy job cleaning and preparing the long strait trenches for drag races...the distance of the races grew untill it became city to city (500-900 miles).
The model is in a section of the trench, and is done in 1/48th. metal foil, metalizer and Alclad to get the alloy look...rivets rivets and more rivets.
PhD It's all in the story
