New Car Smell!


The new table commission I mentioned yesterday is gearing up, I'm designing templates and such as I type. I promise I'll reveal what is is IN PICTURE FORM when I have some of the basics built. I think it's shaping up to be something quite special and unique I think.

In the meantime, here are the first pieces I've finished for the new table., some 1:48 scale toy cars I distressed and painted up today (the table has a bit of a Post Apocalyptic vibe going on).

Mostly done with different shades of spray paint and some stippling + dry brushing for some more controlled rust. The flat tires were done by melting them with a lighter (which I wasn't sure would work so I'm glad I didn't ruin them!) and the broken glass by actually braking it (CAREFULLY) in some places and scoring it with a knife in others.

I'm pretty pleased with how these came out and maybe even inspired to build a Fallout style Post Apoc table in the future!


  1. Will they be about the right scale for 28-32mm figs?

  2. Yeah 1:48 scale is just about right for 28mm in most cases
