54mm Staff Car
« on: March 26, 2017, 03:55:57 AM »
Quick and nasty 54mm scale Inquisitorial staff car. Made from a $1.25 op-shop toy.

Beginning with this


And little conversion (cover windows, plastic sheeting on roof and hood, a few imperial eagles)


And done!






An Inquisitor and her retinue disembark from their staff car


Cheers Aurelius

Looks great. Scale works really well.

I particularly like the conversion of that Reaper Miniatures model too.

No idea on scale as it is a toy car, but I would hesitantly put it around 1/24. Bit big but hey sci fi, and even my power armour inquisitor could fit in there! It will comfortably fit 2 in the front and 4 in the back, so perfect warband transport

That's a good idea. Nice work.
Did you cut out the glass or stick paper inside?

Man I wish I could find more stuff like this - I can never find well-scaled vehicles.

Which parts have you used for those two characters?

Thanks all :)

I ditched the interior (kept for later as nice in-scale couches) and stuck thin carboard inside. Cheap and nasty but they came out ok

Me too normally. I would really like to make some more mining vehicles and so on, you just need a keen eye for conversion possibility.

Here's my project log for those two characters, including much nicer pics :)

Very nice. Needs more skulls though :p
