Since i have no idea what kind of car this is, i named it Greenline. This far the cheapest toy, only 50 cents.

"  Are you posting them in Toys, too?" No, just here, since they are not to be played with. Just for watching. And here we go again with recycling and zombie hunting.

And more of the same. This one was slightly different to make since it is diecast model. Not so much freedom. I also tried different weathering techniques with this one.

I made this Hello Kitty tank mostly from egg carton. Those are an excellent source of material for crafting.
Gun barrel is dry marker pen.
Large piece of cardboard for base. I glued coffee and tea grounds on it and then i sprayed paint.
Pictures tell you better  how it was made than my crappy english  Embarrassed.

 Once again recycling old toys. This was inspired by Dr. Cranky's Zombie Hunter Community Build from model cars magazine forums and all the zombie games, movies and tv-series. So here goes; Post-apocalyptic Mercedes-Benz.

More recycled toys. My latest project "Spiky" was inspired by pwtomczak's "Stick Around" zombie killer car. Saw it when visiting AmericanScaleModel.freeforums.org. Maybe it's not very practical having spikes stuffed with rotting zombie flesh but i think those spikes look good. AK fluids were used for weathering again.

This is my latest project. Recycled plastic toy car. Front piece/plow is made from paperboard, paper and cardboard. And some wood. For weathering I used AK- Worn Effects fluid and sponge.

More Star Wars related stuff. Originally i wanted to make an easy model for children to make but i got carried away and made an Hello Kitty X-wing and X-wing from jasta 11. The usual material was used, also played with paint.net again.
Now i wrote English for tutorial, please let me know if there are any bad mistakes.

With these two models the most time-consuming part was the engines. So this was the longest project this far. But good fun anyway!

Well, it wasn't too swift of me to not take 'before' pics, but I did not originally have the intention of posting this....
I inherited a cat bank, bright purple with jazzy painting all over it. Not to my taste. I just started volunteering for my local animal shelter, who, of course always needs money. I figured the bank just showed up in my life for a reason! I thought if I made it cute enuf, more folks would put in their quarters and dimes. I hung info on our rescue group around the kitty's neck. The whiskers are real!!  I have been doing cat rescue for 20 years and now have a collection of over 1000 whiskers which I would find in the sofa, on my bed, and on the floor....

Continuing with same as before. I present "Rolling Blades" and "Satisfaction". I'm quite hooked on these post apocalyptic vehicles now.

Made  a few rayguns.

Two of them have water pistols  as the base, one a toy barbie hairdryer. Pomegranate juice bottles, old earrings, a computer key, ect. Stands and plaques were laminate shelving pieces, and the  base to a broken aqua light, all scavenged from junk day. Stand also uses the plastic tube from a roll of receipt paper, a found round metal bit, pizza box plastic stand,and beads.
Also fixed up a clock from Goodwill. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432356.0#axzz2xBIq4L89
I painted old gift cards green, cut them up,  and glued them to the back where the cut outs in the clock frame were. Then glued on random things like broken watch pieces, washers and metal bits, charms, keys,a few beads, a small bit of pyrite, ect. The 'angel' is a two way splitter from the thrift store, with a bolt, two small charms from my stash for wings, and a random plastic piece painted gold for the halo.
