Nice work. A model that size has presence.

Although you may ask yourself, in the movie, what exact purpose does the entire truck chassis serve on the barge. Except to look cool of course.

BTW.. your ANZAC Plastic blog has some cool content.

At first glance it doesn't look like the truck does much but when you freeze the frames it reveals the trucks rear wheels drive the paddle wheel which is basically a big water tank with tyres lashed to it to act as paddles , and from what I can work out there are hydraulic hoses running from the engine to power the quad 50 and possibly some kind of water cooling system , but yeah its looks hella cool
A lot of people write off the movie as Mad Max on water, yes it has massive plot holes and some dodgy acting but the action sequences , design and concept are original and to this day not replicated or bettered, the hellfire barge is one of the most original post apoc vehicles ever to be built in real life, I hope I can capture it correctly
Thanks for checking out my blog  :thumbsup:

Nice, very nice. :thumbsup:

What I am really waiting for is the paint stage. I expect you will be able to go to town at that time.

Each and every time I see this thread title though I picture a barge packed with rack's of Hellfire missiles...
