HMC #36 - Ecto 1, I love the 80s!

Last Update:



I'm going to attempt Ecto 1 for this challenge. Just Ecto 1 and not 1a from Ghostbusters 2 or 1b from the video game.



From the Wiki:
"The Ecto-1 is a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura (limousine style windows) Duplex (hearse / ambulance combination) used in the 1984 film Ghostbusters and other Ghostbusters fiction."


If I can finish this guy up, I'll attempt to turn it into an 80s tribute with a few other choice vehicles from the time period.

Best luck Wyatt, but I know you will do fine

I remember having the toy of this car. I look forward to seeing her as glorious CG as for me the only two cars I can think of that really stands out as unique were Ecto-1 and the 1989 Batmobile.

Thanks fellas, gonna try to get an early jump on this one.

They really had some great concept art in Ghostbusters. I don't think I could get better. Quick look up gave me the dimensions so I'm good to go.

So, first task is to model a 1959 Miller-Meteor Futura Ambulance.
Second task, convert it into Ecto1.

Here we go!
