Title: BlackThorne's Custom Vehicles
Post by: BlackThorne on November 16, 2012, 04:05:31 PM
Hi friends,

Here I'll show my (attempt to created) customs vehicles. I never had access to any kind of specific "how to". The materials we have in Brazil aren't similar to the ones you guys usually use, that make the custom creation even more harder.

All I achieved was due to the help of a great plastic artist called Panza (from ukko e etc).

My first vehicle was an assault speeder. It is just a Zam's Speeder with some guns attached to it.

Let me know what are your impressions. All kinds of feedback are welcome.

More pics of the vehicles can be found on my blog: http://forjadasestrelas.blogspot.com.br/

*I restarted customizing about 5 months ago.

I confess I was not satisfied with the result obtained after finishing this particular custom. To my eyes is missing something, I dont know.

Fortunatelly all the other vehicles I created after that yellow fighter "pleased me a lot". The inspiration for the 3 vehicles bellow came from the Smuggler Alliance, a faction that has an absurd potential to be explored in the custom universe.

Hi wraithnine, those customs were made based on vintage GI Joes vehicles I bought in a flea market. I'm glad you liked them. 0/

Welcome to the custom vehicle forum! Way to enter with a bang!

Are all of these GI Joe vehicle mods? I recognise several but not all of them. The yellow one is very nicely done bt I agree is missing something. I would love to see a verticle wing that could swing up and down like the V-19 Starfighter.

The brown vehicle is simple but cool. Works perfectly and I love the grimey look. Not much of a cockpit in that one it looks like.

The silver one with blue windows is a vehicle I hope to get my hands on. I love what you have done here! Are the wings on a hinge or ate they stationary? A very nicely designed vehicle.

The kit bash/scratch built speeder bike is brilliant! Really love it and the figure beside it.

The final vehicle is just awesome! Would love to see what is inside! I think it would be even better if you used the paint treatment we see on the side on the top of the vehicle as well. Just my opinion but it rocks as is. I really love your style and paint aps. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us.

Hey Spywalker, yep I entetred with all I got.

All of this customs are based on Joe's vehicles. I'll that a note of your V-19's concept. I believe it would be really cool if can be done in a light starfighter.

The brown vehicle actually is a small module that comes with the last (cargo) ship in the list. It can be placed inside the big ship.

The silver wing is my #2 favorite custom by now. It was originally a Cobra Wolf which I added the s-foils, a turbine and some guns to the original structure. The wings are stationary. This particular ship was created based on the "ugly" concept.

Despite of owning the custom speeder, this custom wasn't done by me. It is a commissioned creation from Ukko e etc especially for me. It was put on the pic just to shoot a scene.  ;)

The final vehicle is my current favority. It took some weeks to be finished. I considered to change even more the top parte (which is originally black), but changed my mind when I realized that the interior could be really old and more "used' than the exterior parts. I got more pics of her for you to take a look:

I'm currently working on a speeder bike and a Fallout's Hummer. As soon as I get solids results I'll share it.

These are wonderful!  Good job!

Thanks, Mando Assasin!

Running Wild!

Hi friends, I came back just in time to wish you all a merry christmas. This end of year was a little bit hard for me due to the end of my graduation, but everything is ok now.

Well, in the meantime I finished my last project. I was working in a brute vehicle inspired by Fallout and Mad Max series, wich I'm a big fan since I was a kid.

Let's see the result:

Thanks for the words Luke, I added some layers in the structure to make it compatible to the post apocalyptic universe.

Fantastic! I am off to the front page. Those front doors and their heavy guns are just for the win!

Nice to be in the front page again. The futuristic laser gun and the others two old school guns can inflict critical damage for sure.

Hey guys, I'm absent for some time due to a very limited internet access, however I'm continuing working in some projects. Take a look in my last creation:

This is an armored mining ship used to transport high valued minerals.

I hope you all like, I had some fun creating this.  ;)

Very nice.  I'm actually going to be starting a modified Hiss Tank soon that will result in something very similar.  I was really going for the more standard tank look with a turret mounted on top like yours!  I'm glad to see one done that looks so good, more motivation to get mine put together.  Great work, looks awesome!

Hi Ray, the main structure belongs to the latest HISS Tank released.

Very nice.  I'm actually going to be starting a modified Hiss Tank soon that will result in something very similar.  I was really going for the more standard tank look with a turret mounted on top like yours!  I'm glad to see one done that looks so good, more motivation to get mine put together.  Great work, looks awesome!

Nice! I hope you show us this project soon. If I can provide more pics from different angles to help you, just let me know.

What did you use for the top turret?  If you could get a picture from an above angle to see how you positioned it that'd be cool.  I don't know yet what turret I'll use...  I've got a few  to pick from.  I'm hoping to get some work done on it within the next few weeks.

I used the original turret from the original set: http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/12/hiss/ You can check a top view in the link, but here is another pic of this angle:

Incredible.

Post by: spudafett on June 09, 2013, 08:05:23 PM
well I feel kind of dumb.  I didn't realize that the newest version of this had the turret included.  shows you how rare the new gi-joe toys are in my area!  (and how behind I am at keeping up with what is being released!).

I was thinking when I first saw this that it was a modified version of the original POC line HISS tank. 

Your weathering job and all the other added details are still fantastic.  Very nicely done.

Wow, what a great vehicle. Love the Death Race Movies. Matter of fact gonna watch a new one tomorrow. This vehicle would fit well in the JOE Verse and Zombie or Post-Apocalyptic verses too. Expect to see it on the front page tomorrow.

Just wanted to say how nice your paint work has been on all your vehicles over the past few months...I've stopped in to see your work, but hadn't posted until now. 

I absolutely love what you did with the 'Chinese Cookie': great paint apps, nice coloring, and the the figure added in looks pretty darn good as well!

Love your work here; looking forward to seeing more!

Hi Folks,

Thanks a lot for all the kind words and support. I really appreciate that. I believe I'm finally getting into vehicles customization.

Well, let's check the last projects;

Shadowrun's Fusion Shudder

Hi man, I'm glad you like it. I'll be looking forward to see a custom vehicle from you as soon as possible.

Well, here is another custom vehicle I made for my shadowrun universe. It is a modern HISS tank conversion into some sort of plane:

It was fun to create that Buggy, that's another piece of my Mad Max custom collection. = )

In a near future I plan to add some lone star decals to the plane, but only if I'm able to create or find them somewhere.

The bike was totally repainted, and Zartan got some paint job too. I wanted to create a bike that could match the POC Zartan figure.

The only modification I made was creating a windshield to manage the lack of protection to the front seats.

Wazzup!

Here is my Adventure Team JIM suit, heavily weathered. That's just a Chap-mei repaint I was commissioned to do:

Even if it's just a repaint, it looks fabulous! I will need to get my hands on one of those dive suits for sure! Would it be possible to see the helmet opened?

This is awesome, I just picked up two of these dive suits, never knew they were made. They'd look excellent as the one used in KOTOR, your paint apps are top notch as well, good job!

Always thought about buying the diver suit just might have to now

Any fans of the classic A-wing color scheme? I really hoped hasbro would deliver a ship like we saw on the movie and battlefront game, so I stopped waiting and made my own.

It is great that they use the Ralph McQuarrie concepts in the new movies.
Your A-Wing looks awesome. The weathering is fantastic.

Wow  LOVE that A-WING now I just need to see a green one  ;)

Also that repaint on the deep sea diver is really great. Always wanted that toy... Now you've shown how cool it can be.

What a fun thread.  Just awesome stuff here.

The A-Wing is so damn well done too.  Makes me want to buy a few and repaint them.
