Matchbox Sahara Sweeper

Postby Cpl Overby » Tue Jun 17, 2014 6:08 pm

I have been awaiting this for more than a couple months.
Because all I saw was the Military's Chenowth .

See the similarities?

so I chopped it all apart and started.

Image

I started by chopping off the nipple thing on top,
and the three lights on the roll bar.
I then threw away the wheels, and stripped the paint.
Then I added a platform to mount the .50,
added two spare tires, ruck sacks, new wheels, and new paint.

I was quite happy with the way this turned out,
but I am always looking to see what else I can do to improve it.

Wow wow wow that is excellent.

I hope the rumoured Mad Max film is a goer and the makers should hire you as a model maker.
