Hotwheels Zotic

Whilst rummaging through my box of diecast Battlecars related stuff I found this converted but unpainted Hotwheels model. It's a Zotic, whatever that means, with a Dark Future gun stuck on the roof and extended by the addition of a long brass rod barrel.

I've also added some drop weapons pods on the back end using N scale oil drums, which make perfect 'depth charge' style drop pods for oil, spikes or smoke. I got to the undercoating stage with this one then put it aside for some reason and completely forgot about it. It shouldn't take too long to paint up alongside one or two other conversions that I have in mind.


  1. Just spent my one day off this week digging through my basement, looking for my copy of Car Wars. Haven't played the game in twenty years, but now, thanks to your posts, I have yet another project to add to the list. Thanks a lot.

  2. Gets worse. Had to go to Walmart, found myself in the toy section. Right next to the Hot Wheels were Battle Machines. Larger scale, but with weapons and armor modeled on. Couldn't resist the '57 Bel Air with a minigun on the hood. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in......
