View Full Version : Vehicles The COBRA HELLRAISER by A.V.A.C.

The Cobra Hellraiser crew: the Driver is an updated Nitro-Viper and his crew, Gamma Vipers.

There are a lot of things to play with on this, it's more of a play-set than a vehicle, but i digress. Here's some of the things your hands can enjoy:

-Gunner cockpit pivots/opens.
-Camo stows in side racks.
-Side doors open to carry 5-6 men.
-Rear engine cover opens and is held open by pivoting stand.
-Rear rocket carriage spins 360 degrees at angled tactical nuke position and pivots side to side standing upright in ICBM launch mode.
-Carriage doors hinge up and out to clear missile for launch and snaps back when payload is released.

There are elements of sci-fi and realism here, after all, it is a toy. Some suspension of disbelief as always folks. Hope you all like it and if you get a chance, check out the fun video and the photo-bucket pics.

Once again, thanks all for the looks and comments!

This rules. I love the "weight" of the vehicle. It just looks like it's very heavy!

Amazing kitbashing, and creative use of parts for sure. I wasn't initially sold on the missle being the same colour as the rest of the vehicle, but the camoflauge picture with the foliage sold it. Awesome work.

Thanks for the comments everyone! The base body is a Forces of Valor M1A1 Abrams. I actually got a bunch of them on clearance at Target for $7. Here's a link with a pic of what they look like, before it was mutilated:

That is all kinds of awesome. The vehicle, the figures. All of it damn amazing. I'd love to buy one of these. Take note Hasbro this is how it's done.

I absolutely freaking love this thing. Your attention to detail and the time you took to photograph it really make this piece shine.

Congrats on a unique one-of-a-kind toy. If they sold this, I'd buy two.

06-03-2011, 06:10 AM
Yeah i agree this is super quality work. FRONT PAGE!!!!!!! this bad boy. This thgan looks like it could single handedly take out the PITT and start WW III all at the same time.

06-03-2011, 10:27 AM
I give this a free BUMP in hopes that a MOD will front-page it.

Someone has to throw some useless Ebay auctions on the front page instead of something really cool.

Great JOB!!! That thing is awesome!

Wow that's just crazy!!!
Cool crew too!

Only way this could look any better is with a bit of weathering.
But that's just me... Don't mind me.

Thanks man, i originally had planned to do weathering on this, i just ran out of time. Maybe the next one. :D

This thing is beautifully crafted AVAC! You made this look like something that was put together from a box. I think Hellraiser is kind of an understatement. It should almost be called the End Game because anything that gets hit with that is going to have to adjust their borders.

How is this thing not front paged? Between the construction, paint and idea this thing is by far a great original. Let's see some action with this! This was made with blood, sweat and tears!

Very nice. I would buy one of those.

We need stuff like this in the war-would change their attitudes right quick

Is the front base a vintage Warthog?

Is the front base a vintage Warthog?

Yes it is Lody, but i wouldn't recommend giving it a bath, it weighs 6.8 lbs and it will sink.

Wow. This is an absolute incredible beast AVAC! Everyone else's Cobra army just got a little jealous.This is seamless man!

These armies can always acquire one you know. ;)

Exceptional work, very impressed..... I must hate you now.

Thanks man, but that's ok Spectre, stand in line or take a number.

that is so cool I may make one for myself. I have all the vehicles and the missile too.

Let me know if you need any help!

I give this a free BUMP in hopes that a MOD will front-page it.

Thanks Lad, much appreciated..

I thought i would share one Last Pic just for the hell of it. A moment in time that meant a lot to me. Anyway, thanks again all, later days....

As always I'm too lazy (niteforced) to read the whole thread. Didn't this Bad Ass Fucker win an award? I had a volunteer shift watching the Customs Tables and several people asked me if it was for sale. Good thing you were close by AVAC. I really needed more beer money. :D

Sweet!!!! What kind of plastic do you use to makes these customs? Are the pieces made from molds or what?

Not yet, but they soon will be. Currently, it's just a kit-bash and found parts.
It's easier to catch the parts unpainted. I included a couple of pics before disassembly and paint......

We saw this at the Joe Con, it was awesome in person! Nice work! :)

Hey, nice pic, thanks man! Did we meet? lol

This is still one of the best custom vehicles I have seen. Every time someone comments on it and bumps it up, I always have to look at all the pics again and admire this piece. Outstanding job!!
