Drive thru testing for COVID in 1/35 - 1/32.
This will be a small diorama using ICM, ARII, and MENG kits.
I modified 2 figures from the ICM kit already.




The 2 figures I'm using are the standing figure in PPE and the seated driver body and arms. The head is from the other seated figure.










Thanks for looking

KSO, great to see you here mate, and what a brilliant idea! We have had drive-through testing stations open up around Melbourne last week and thousands of people utilising them.

It looks like you're having fun with the figures already, I will definitely be following your work on this one.

Cheers, D

Cool idea. What did you use for the hair on the driver?

I always like poppin in around here. I just haven't been working on anything that would fit here lately.

That's great news about those testing stations around your area.

Thanks for checking in and stay well.

Hi, thanks for asking. I used this white filler putty from the tube. There are about eight layers of curly hair there because of the air cure quality of this material. Each layer is about the thickness of the curls. Each layer was spread on with a tooth pick and poked in curls.

Thanks KSO, I'm familiar with the product, have a tube down in the workshop along with many more. Nice technique you used.

ARII '65 Nissan Skyline kit# .... I don't know. I can't find it or I can't read it. Anywho it was 5 bucks at a show. This will be the POV the driver fig will be driving.

The body and pan parts are already base coated. The right-hand drive was also converted to LH drive. However crudely but done.

Stickframe: Haha, I was thinking about what tags to use for this car. Finally settled with Cheech's ride. Thanks for the compliment!

Dixon66: Thank you very much. It actually took me a little longer than that. I started the thread when I was already finishing up the car. I do it that way so I know that I'll actually finish a project. I have several projects that are incomplete so if I start a build thread in real time then don't finish then it becomes derelict

Nice job KSO, topical and unusual, and well done!

I've got to be honest, I want to see that truck and armed guards alongside, basically "You're getting tested, or else!"
