Pearl's Microbus, the Widowmaker!
« on: January 13, 2016, 01:15:09 PM »
This one is pretty basic and I'm not the first to do this...

I started with a five inch pull-back car I found at a Hastings store. It's partially diecast and partially plastic. I cleaned off the hippie logos and peace signs from the red portions and touched up the paint, adding scratches and wear here and there.

For the overall design, I decided to combine elements from the small model replica and the large-scale bus used in the show.

The radar dish and some of the rockets were from an Ecto-1 model kit. The main body of the rockets were PVC pipe.

The license plate was cut from styrene. I designed it in photoshop and printed it.

I painted it all up and here she is!

I plan to hang the SOL and the Bus above the desk...
