More Battle Cars

My 10 year old son and I have been at it again, and have created two more battle cars for our Axles and Alloys game. Charlies is the Red Rocketeer, a van armed with a turret mounted medium missile launcher and a smoke launcher, while I opted for the more 'up-close-and-personal' Disco Inferno, a pick-up truck armed with a huge flame-thrower on the side, a rear facing military grade pulse laser, and a big ol' rusty ram on the front.
The cars are matchbox-scale Fast Lane cars, and the weapons are old Games Workshop.

Thanks yor the feed back guys- Charlie and I are having a great time working on these- it's real quality time and it's got him really enthusiastic about painting again. The boy's got some skill that needs nurturing (He's only 10, and when I look back at some of the rubbish I painted in my teens, I can see he has a lot of potential).
Challanged- I used aluminum mesh avalaible from car repair shops, like Halfords in the UK. You will find it in the car-body repair section, with the spray paint and so on. It costs £2 for an A4 sheet, which will go a long way. You can cut it with a craf knife byt I fing it distorts. It's easier to use clippers.
