For those who don’t have a copy, or didn’t see the pic I put in the replies to my General Mayhem post, here’s the page from Roadkill issue 2 with the customs. Sorry for the iPhone pics. The article reads:
“CHEAPER, FASTER, MORE RELIABLE
If you want a ROADKILL fleet of vehicles, this is the way to do it. All of these are clones of ROADKILL show vehicles created by Nick Deavers of Tecumseh, Michigan. We first saw his stuff on Instagram, and now we’ve got photos of the whole collection! These start off as Matchbox or Hot Wheels 1/64 scale models that get modified. Some are just a matter of stripping paint, repainting, and changing wheels (remove the stock ones with a Dremel, glue on different ones). Others are a lot of work cutting off body parts, finding replacements on other models, and reinstalling them. For the three-wheeling low rider, paper clips were glued in place to make it ride goofy. The model of our General Mayhem started as a Dodge Charger Daytona, but has parts from a Dodge Dart, and a grille made from window screen. “The Corvette kart, the ramp truck and the front end of the land-speed car were probably the hardest ones to do,” Nick says. “On the Corvette kart, the rollcage is all paperclips fitted and super glued. On the land-speed car I used drain repair putty to shape the hood scoop and front valance. On the ramp truck I had to cut apart two ‘83 Silverados, JB Weld them and their bases together, then take the slider, trailer, and base off of a hauler.” Nick spends 1 to 3 hours a day just doing ROADKILL projects and still has to age a Gremmie, smash a Prius, finish a drag version of the General Mayhem, make a General Maintenance, and try to re-create the rear engine Mazda truck.”
I didn’t make these and I’m not trying to take credit for them. Ndeavers80 did. Just trying to give this artist some spotlight.
