Hi all well i had a problem with this when I started it, the paint reacted with the plastic and no amount of barrier coats or anything else seemed to sort it so I decided to just build it as best I could, but then found the decals fell apart and what didn't, didn't stay on when dry even whist spraying gloss coat on them to seal them the air from my airbrush blew them off so I stripped it all off again and decided to do something totally different I know the paintwork will never be great but hopefully the differing colours will help to hide it, so,,,, can you guess who drives a car like this.

Would that be the interceptor colours from mad max?
Excellent idea.

That's it (I'm having a hell of a job getting the MFP decals to work) if I print them on decal paper the density of the ink is so thin it's almost transparent I tried spraying the decal paper with the yellow on the body then printing over that but because it's shiney the ink just goes all bobbily like little beads of rain, so, I thought I would put matt varnish over the yellow then print over that, which worked but when I sprayed gloss over it the black spread out anduring then the letters didn't have crisp edges. Scratching my head now as to what to try next.

Just a thought as It's what I would personally do myself, but have you considered hand painting by the brush? using masking in strategic places where a straight line is needed?

That's a very cool take on the car. I don't know what the decal you're trying to make should look like but but could you break down the process by letter and shapes, then juxtapose each layer?

Hi all its been pointed out that I have the paint job wrong for mad max, I can't correct all the colour scheme (oil and cellulose don't mix) so, since this car was not in the film I used artistic licence.

And that is as it should be, your vision on it works very well. When I first saw it it struck me very sharply as "The mad max cop cars" without a doubt. It's certainly given me a few ideas.

Great job!!

That is the wildest Batmobile I have ever seen. Keep it going.

Hi all well this is as far as I'm going to get on this at the moment as I need some dry transfer letters but we're on holiday from Friday and I won't be ordering them till we get back I think that's all that needs doing on this now, I always knew the paintwork was never going to be great as that's why it's all the colours it is but I have to say I'm quite pleased how it's turned out.

It must have been a huge car as in the last pic you can see its next to a 1/16 VW and it's longer, for a 2 seater car I think it must have been mahosive.

That is way cool! I'm very impressed that you went away from the Batmobile and came up with this. Great stuff!

An alternate reality where Bruce Wayne and Max Rockatansky switched places ... or the Australian Highway Patrol started getting their Interceptors from a retro dealership, lol. Excellent idea and execution!

This paint scheme is Genius!! I think we figured out the base car is a '55 Lincoln which is why it's so long.
