WWG Sedan Cars

The designers at World Works Games must really like this model as it is one of their most ubiquitous vehicles, appearing as a taxi, a police car, and, in slightly modified forms, a hearse and a stretch limousine, as well as the sedan cars shown here. Hey, if you have a winning design then stick with it!
These cars appear in the Mayhem Bank set in the colour schemes shown here, blue and crimson. There is also a kitbash set of Sedan Cars designed by Bob Cooper, which offers a further eight colour schemes - black, blue (a different shade to the one shown here), green, pink (yes, honestly!), purple, red, white and yellow. I have not made any of these yet but they are on my "to do" list. I just wanted to get these two under my belt first before I start on the rest of the fleet.
As you can see, these are four-door sedan cars. You can see from this side-on view how the back of the car is raised higher than the front.
This rear view shows how the sides of the car are sloped, narrow at the top and wider at the bottom. Sadly, they both come with the same number plates. ABC123 is not the most imaginative of number plates, now is it? Still, as this is my only gripe about the model I can't grumble.

This is a fairly easy vehicle to make and I made these in two to three hours. Having made them, I can fully understand why the WWG designers like this vehicle so much. Its simple design lends itself to conversion and modification. The bigger your gaming board, the more of these you will need to populate your roads. I know myself that these two are not enough for me and I will be making the other eight variants to add to my motor pool. Next time, I'll take a look at the taxi variants of this wonderful model.


  1. Wow you've been busy Bryan. Ive been extremely ill for the past couple of weeks and am falling behind on all my projects. I'm so jealous of all the great things you are doing.
    I'm still managing a little gaming though, the kids just don't care how sick you are.

  2. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling so well, Willy. You have my sympathies. Truly, I hope you get well soon.

    Me, busy? Hell, yeah! Remember in my latest editorial that I mentioned I had a hankering for starting a big WWG project, like possibly the Mayhem Police Station? Well, that's exactly what I'm doing and my enthusiasm for this project is sky-high. I don't know how long it'll take me to complete (three or four months, perhaps) because this will be my largest WWG project to date. And on top of that WWG have just released their first Mayhem TerrainLinx sets. Plus I have a growing pile of figures to paint. Why aren't there enough hours in the day?

  3. I was wondering if you could post any WIP details and photos when making your vehicles. I have these sets and I am really interested in your method but can't actually picture how to do it. They are gorgeous.

  4. Graham, that is an excellent suggestion! It is something I'd never thought of doing but I can see the merit in it. It won't happen soon (too busy) but I will do one later, hopefully by the end of this year. I have been asked to do a tutorial on how I paint my zombies, which is another project I have in the pipeline. So a tutorial on my WWG models seems like a logical step to take.

  5. Thanks for that and I look forward to it, hopefully sooner rather than later, nudge nudge:D

  6. More beautiful work, Bryan. You should get together with WWG and put out a dvd. You totally OWN this stuff!

  7. @Graham. No problem, mate. Just be sure to give me a reminder every now and then and I will get it done. I've already been thinking about how to do it so that's a step in the right direction.

    @Roger. I'm sure that WWG would love me to produce a DVD as well! I wouldn't mind doing it but a lack of a camcorder is major stumbling block. I'll add this suggestion to my list of things to do. I love how you guys keep me on my toes. It's way better than being ignored.

    Anyone got any other suggestions don't be afraid to drop me a line.
