Da Gangster Getaway

3D model description

Was in a bit of a hurry to knock up something vehicular for a 28mm wargame of Mad Dogs with Guns, so came up with this, loosely based on Al Capone's Cadillac. As it turned out, it took a bit longer than I anticipated, but hey, at least it looked vaguely realistic!

(The road the model is sitting on in the photo is one of the 'Ripper's London - The Back Streets' models)

Supports:
Yes

Resolution:
Fine

Notes:
Support is required on only one piece - the rear window/rear seat which is best printed upright. I've included a couple of rods for front axle and steering wheel rod, but I would strongly recommend you use wire as a replacement if you're going to use the model out on the wargames table.

I have included a 'onesie' printout - as the picture shows, it can be done (if your bed's big enough)

Darn - forgot to glue the sunshade onto the model in the picture -it does fit, trust me!

How I Designed This

Source
I designed this model from two or three contemporary photos of Capone's Caddy, so if the dimensions aren't quite right, I wouldn't be in the least surprised!
