First build of the year and surprise surprise, it's another Wild Willy 2!

A couple of ebay hop-up sellers use a black WW2 in their photos and I liked the look, so it had to be done. This is a bit of a parts-box special, a mix of used bits, spare bits and a few new parts - plus a few blingy bits to finish it off :-)

It looked a bit plain and boring just in matt black so I added a few bits to try to liven it up. So it has lights (headlights are cobbled together, front spots are Fastrax on a custom bracket, rears are RCModelex 16mm). There's some subtle shading/weathering too.

I made some drivers with the hazard stripes on before, and it seemed right for this. A micro-servo turns his head with the steering. A few extra 'hazard warning' stickers on the bodyshell to try to tie it all in. Then a triple-NOS set up, a few Top Secret documents and an Area 51 parking permit finish it off :D

So here it is - Hazard Willy is born!

Hope you like it,
Cheers,
Rob

Thanks for the kind comments chaps
The headlights are some spare lenses from a Streetjam grille and some light buckets from a random broken light bar that happened to be about the right size.

Interesting.. I like it! Been thinking about black as a color on a WW myself for years, but never done one so far, as so many of the necessary details I like to do are all in black. Yours don't looks bland though (your models never do), and it would be a cool challenge to do one myself.
