PostSubject: Armageddon Viper   Fri 29 May 2015, 6:17 am

Had such a blast building the 57 Plymouth post apocalypse car !
Ideas just keep imposing themselves in my brain !! Exploring the possibilities by sorting through my generous care package salvage yard, I came  upon a previously overlooked heavily wrapped baggie package. HOLY CRAP !! A vintage VIPER !!!!

Could not ask for better transportation to negotiate running the gauntlet of Armageddon than a souped up classic Mopar Viper!!
Most of the car is there in bare vintage virgin plastic.
I have given the frame a coat of primer and am making an adapter on the front of the block to put something in place of the missing water pump.

This probably appears a tad retarded, putting a blower on the top of a Viper intake, but that's what I do !
Deal with it !

This must have been a Snap-On kit,a lot of stuff had snap tabs, and there is no way this was meant to go together like I'm used to.
Had to cut some around the engine bay. Body wouldn't fit down over the engine. Like the valve covers and hoses forward had to be put on last !
But it'll work !!!

Small update.
I don't have the grill piece (or windows) for this model, but no prob, I'll be making a crash bar of some type for it. I'll have to bite the bullet and drive 30 miles to the hobby shop in Ocala. Running low on styrene strips. (Been cutting some out of flat styrene stock, but this'll make things easier and , maybe, nicer)
I had to break the blower loose and re-position it better centered for the hood opening.


Made a tread plate platform for the rear interior out of the same coffee seal material.

Waiting for adhesive to cure, I got totally sidetracked and built a machine gun, tripod, and a belt of ammo.

Sidetracked is good .... if you produce stuff like that clay.

Nice machine gun. Is that cow catcher going to be on the front of it? It doesn't look bad or anything like that just got me curious.

It'll be on the front, Buck. Takes the place of the front end that wasn't with the parts I got. Besides, fits with the Mad Max theme.

Small dinky stuff yesterday. I wanted the  guard to simulate made out of pipe. Ended up with coiling some fine wire around a drill bit and then slicing thru to get some small ringlets. They had to be spread to slip over the round stock and then squeezed back around after placement. Needless to say, it was a bit fiddley. Sure would have easier, had I used some forthought and placed them as I was assembling the tubing.



Also, had no dashboard with the parts, so found a Camero dash in the stash that was close to the right width. A little bashing to make it into a dash/console to fit the Vipers interior tub.

Dinkin' along making detail stuff for the interior. Forgoing my usual minimum effort interior. Figured I ought to finally address the rear end. Cutting out the taillight openings, for no particular intent. Don't have the taillights, I did find a bumper that fits the bill. Milky green crappy plastic from a glue bomb truck, but it'll work.


Back portion attached.
