15mm alternatives to Marx's Cars of the Future
« on: October 27, 2020, 07:13:38 PM »
Hey,
I was at my local supermarket when I came across a matchbox car called "Dream Mobile".  I thought it would look great on a post apocalyptic board in 15mm.  Here are the results:

I love it.  Specially for an alternate futuristic timeline.

That looks great! I wonder if you could make a press mold to duplicate others for your board?
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

That car is simple enough in design that I bet a press mold would turn out great. Wouldn't take long to build a five Dream Mobile pile up on the post apoc expressway!

This are excellent models. I almost squealed when I first saw them.
I've managed to find 12 to go onto my (planned) hoverway.

Info I have seen leads me to believe that they will plan to be released in blue next year in 2021. I'll happily get a few more then.

The wheel profile is so low too!  Easy to convert into a hovercar!

The more I look at it the more I’m reminded of the retro vehicles used in the film Gattaca.

I’m hoping they make some different models too.
