The Road

Hello everybody :)

 

Some weeks ago I read the book ´The Road´ from Cormac McCarthy and I really enjoyed reading it. Therefore I decided to make a MOC based on that book. It´s the first time that I made a Apoca creation and I really had a lot fun building it. I tried to include some new techniques, for instance for the dead tree were I used some of the new wand pieces from the Harry Potter sets or for the cart. Credits go to Sanel Lukovic (www.flickr.com/photos/92767814@N02 ), whos Apoca creations where a big Inspiration for me and to Dr. Zarkow (www.flickr.com/photos/dr-zarkow ) for the great feedback he gave me and for the photo editing.

 

Moreover I tried to include some easter eggs in my creation, for instance I used to head of Aragorn for the man, because Viggo Mortensen, who played Aragron in the Lord of the Rings movies, also played the man in movie "The Road" which is based on the book. Furthermore the vehicles are also something special: Two years ago I got two cars as a present from Jonas Obermaier (www.flickr.com/photos/41449996@N04) and Robert Maier (www.flickr.com/photos/hellboy95) as a present and therefore I decided to use similar version of the cars they gave me here in my creation. The original cars from them still have a special place on my building desk, thanks again for that great gift :)

 

I hope you like it :)
