Sci-Fi All Terrain Vehicle?

Hi all.
While perusing the toy aisle of a well known supermarket, we all need inspiration from somewhere, my eagle eyes spotted this interesting little gem from Hot Wheels. 

I thought this Max Steel Turbo Racer (pictured below) would make a interesting Sci-fi vehicle. I had no idea who Max Steel was and had to google him!

Once painted to go with my sci-fi army, it made quite a nice buggy/recon vehicle. To give it some offensive capability I added a grenade launcher to the roof.

I am please with how it turned out, I think i'll paint up a couple more of these for some light vehicle support.

Thanks for viewing.

  1. I just got one... Pretty cool! The factory paint stripped off nicely with oven cleaner too, though this makes the job more complicated and stinky, as well as toxic :/ I have high hopes for converting it into a Riflething buggy.
