from the classic Roger Corman written and directed American International production starring Jan Michael Vincent.
"In a world gone mad from fuel shortages only one man stood strong against the gangs of fuel thieves. Only one man could stop the convoys of armed semi-tankers. Only one man could stop the Mad Macks." Copyright 1975 by American International Pictures.

Progress:




The tank ends need a bit more fiing, then it'll be a little putty and black paint.

This really brings a smile to my face, Jon!

Jan Michael Vincent, the American Mel Gibson? Yes, I can see it!

Looks like you're off to a fantastic start!

Eagerly awaiting more,

Having seen Jan Michael Vincent in the abortion Hollywood made of Roger Zelazny's Damnation Alley where they jacked up the title and ran and entirely different story underneath, I can believe this story quite easily.

Beautiful work on the model.

Looking good  :)  And good use of that AMT supercharger (anything but a Paxton blower is sacrilege on a Studebaker!)

Looks like I forgot to post some update photos, these are from last July.   :-[
Still not finished and still putzing with backstory graphics and 'movie' posters.
