While perusing the toy aisle of a well known supermarket, we all need inspiration from somewhere, my eagle eyes spotted this interesting little gem from Hot Wheels.
I thought this Max Steel Turbo Racer (pictured below) would make a interesting Sci-fi vehicle. I had no idea who Max Steel was and had to google him!
Once painted to go with my sci-fi army, it made quite a nice buggy/recon vehicle. To give it some offensive capability I added a grenade launcher to the roof.
I am please with how it turned out, I think i'll paint up a couple more of these for some light vehicle support.
Editor's Note - Let me say thank you to Mark for allowing us to pick at his blog for interesting posts that we feel will demonstrate the joys of the 15mm sci-fi hobby. Mark is not the only one to offer up his blog feeds, so you should be seeing interesting material from around the blogaverse coming to roost here.
