Starting with a 1/24 scale head with a lit cigarette, I am in the process of constructing a quick vehicle for him to sit in while he enjoys his eternal smoke. It was going to be a truck but I want it done for Octabber and certainly for Smokyween. A truck takes a long time because I’m picky about details. So it’s not a truck.
Can you tell what it is yet?
It’s a V6 with twin Webers and lots of chrome. Here’s the other side.
As you can see, the detail is minimal. No cables at all. Have you guessed what Smoking Man will be riding? No? Well how about these -
Once these parts have set, I can move on to larger, more rapid construction. This won’t have brass-wire brake pipes or spark plug leads or any working lights other than Smoking Man (and perhaps a passenger). The next one will but I want this one done for Smokyween so must curb my fussy nature.
The body shell will be removable so I won’t have to cut holes to insert batteries. This first one will be simple.
The next one won’t be.
More to follow. See how far I get before you can tell what it’ll be. I expect a few motorheads already know.
