In a complete contrast to my last review, which looked at my sleek, highly polished sports-cars, I present the WWG burned out car models. These two superb models come from the Bits of Mayhem set and I thoroughly applaud WWG's Matt Lyon for producing them.
They come in two colour schemes - red and yellow. Note how the wheels are splayed out, as if both axle shafts have snapped. It's a nice touch which keeps the cars flush with the ground and helps to emphasise the fact that these really are wrecks.
The instructions recommend that you colour the reverse side of the pieces you cut out in black felt-tip pen before making the model. Good advice, as it would be incredibly difficult and fiddly trying to get a pen or a paintbrush inside after you'd built it. I painted the inside of my cars with matt black paint rather than use a felt-tip pen. That is just a preference I have, as I always "edge" my models with acrylic paint.
The windows have to be cut out so that you can see the burned out interior, which is simply a single piece of card that is curled at the front and back to fit just underneath the front and back windows respectively. It is a simple solution to representing the ruined interior that works well.
Incidentally, they are not the easiest of vehicles to build but neither are they the hardest. I'd rate them as a moderately complex build but they are well worth having a go at. Even if you use die-cast vehicles in your games, these are worth making as no one makes die-cast burned out cars. Your only other alternative is to look for resin cast sculpts, of which I know a few, but they cost a heck of a lot more than these.
