Amusement Park Cars

Hot Wheels make an amusement park ride car.

It comes in two versions, one of them has two passengers with their arms up. 

I got several of them so I could make an amusement park.

Here you can see both versions.

A close up of arms up.

Some of the arms up are mismolded.

Arms down.

They clip together to form little trains.

Here are a few linked together.

Bat Gas

My workspace has been the site of a number of small projects.

A couple 100mm Soviet anti-tank guns.  I mix two part epoxy on a bit of aluminum foil with a pointy toothpick.

I am also working on a gasoline station from Plasticville.

It will become part of my US Army Base project.  Batmobiles not included.

Panzer III

The Imperial Japanese Army purchased three Panzer III tanks in WWII.

Due to shipping difficulties, they were never sent to Japan.

I am putting these three together to paint as Japanese.

These were from the junk pile.

I had to round up some bits to make them complete.

T-34 ARV

There were many versions of the T-34 recovery vehicle.

I built some with a box to the front.

Each one has a removable piece in the box.

In this case a drill press.

The item can be off loaded and make a repair center out of the pieces.

A few of these together and it makes a nice diorama.
