    2 1:64 Diecast 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Villes and one CASE IH 225 Tractor for the wheels.
    Had to check some tractor stat sites for getting a tractor with the right size tyres. According to the mad max wiki those at the back where about 70 " so that helped a lot.

    It now measures 6.2 cm in height, which would translate to 396.8 cm, which I'm very happy with since again according to the mad max wiki it's supposed to be approx 4 meters.
    The front tyres though seems to be a little big and the two cadillacs are a bit messed up because I'm using some regular super glue and, well, that's just a mess.

    Need to work some more on the underside, and put some more stuff on the engine. Then she's ready for some matt black paint.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! I'm now kind of done. Guess I should add a lot of weathering for the real film look, but in a way I prefer it like this. Now it's more of the Peter Pound model than the actual filming vehicles. (BTW he's put up some great stuff on his website: http://www.peterpound.com.au/mad-max-fury-road/concept-design and http://www.peterpound.com.au/mad-max-fury-road/vehicle-models/) The engine and double cadillac tops are still removable so I can still tinker with it.

    This is looking great. If I may make one suggestion, try coating the flags in a mixture of white glue and water. Once they dry, they'll have a modicum of poseability, and the fraying will be reduced when you cut the material to shape. It makes the scaling of the material to the car much easier to manage.

    Thanks for the tip! The flags where just improvised at the last minute and now they've fallen off, but first I was wanting the flags really flying as when the car goes flat out. Your trick may just be the solution.

    Flags can also be made out of painted metal foil, though you may want to do your painting after you shape the ripples in them.
