On Any Sunday 1/12th Steve McQueen
1 Attachment(s)
Just a quick and for fun personal build from the department of Why The Hell Not.
Simply put, the Tamiya 1/12th Street Rider figure, A head mesh I found on CGTrader that got duly printed.
and a die cast 400 Cross Motorcycle got from Husqvarna.

Said die cast thing was a bit of a state by the time it got to me but that was nothing a little repair work couldn't sort out.
A bit of the paint/shade/dry brush dance later and it was good enough for this turnout.

Some 6mm MDF and grass matting made up the rest along with the paint plastering hoo-ha

The base is 7" wide by 6" deep, the whole deal stands 6 & 3/4" tall,
or about 178 X 152 X 172mm for you metric types.

The name comes from a documentary made in 1971.

Thanks Bill, one tries ones best. The leather was rather simple believe it or not, matt black base then burnt umber very dry brushed worked in all over then the usual dry brush with the same a little heavier on the crease tips and collar. The dry brushing seems to give it that excellent sheen so zero varnish required :)

Not entirely done the the McQueen theme as yet, one more thing on the 'I'll get around to it' list but there's a bit of work to do on both making the figure and most certainly some slog on what goes with it.
But for any watcher of late 1960's cop movies, this may give it away...
