Mad Max/Gaslands custom: Cooper's MiniGun

It’s finally done. This has been my most ambitious custom project yet. Seriously, I don’t know how Tacit Rainbows, Pixel and Noodles make it look so easy. But creating a trashed-up apocalypse custom is way harder than it looks. I had a love/hate relationship with this project and put it down so many times because I was having a hard time making all the parts fit together!

My goal? Take a Tomica Mini Cooper and add half tracks to make it bad ass. I on/off worked on this for various weekends starting at the beginning of the summer. I did the 3D printed parts when I joined the local makerspace over the summer as well. Now that it’s finally done I am happy with it. I especially like the extra gas tanks in the rear and the tombstone protecting them.

I learned a ton while doing this project and hopefully will use that experience to work on more of these at a much quicker pace. Seriously though, this project almost made me quit working on customs because it was taking so long.
