transpixel Roberts

Jeffrey Roberts work resides heavily in his fertile imagination and gets created with amazing skill.  The vehicles in this album are entirely scratch-built or built on a HotWheels frame.   Working in 1:64, it is hard to imagine the tiny parts that are needed, but he does it demonstrating a sense of humor and creativity. transpixel

transpixel INSPIRATION
The inspiration for Jeffrey's Starz'Truck was this 1965 Ford Gas Turbine, which Jeffrey reminds us was an astonishing concept. transpixel

transpixel STARZ'TRUCK
The complete design shown here came after finding household items to customize and put to design use.   For the exterior mirrors, he started out with 2 pocket clips from ballpoint pens.  He fabricated various mirror surfaces and perimeter-camera-lens accents.  Wiper assemblies were made from clothing pins.  Silver-tunneled glass beads were used as hinge points.  transpixel

transpixel STARZ'TRUCK

STARZTRUCK
The wiper housings are cut from clear Lexan sheeting with the chrome accent on top and black silicon overlay for the blades. The satellite communications/multi-media dome was made from the cut-off head of a white push-pin, placed on a chrome hexagonal plate. The cab's side-door grab-rails would later be made from polished bent-to-fit music wire. The grab-rail struts are made from the same clear-body, silver-tunneled crystal beads.

transpixel STARZ'TRUCK

Jeffrey's build-materials partial list is as follows: Tempra-Form, Solid-Bond card stock, MonoKoat accent tapes, clear Lexan strip, styrene rode, aluminum tubing, white crafting glue, clear watch-crystal epozy, clear nail polish etc.    Fascinating!

Cars in the photos help to scale the rig.   She has front wheels that steer.   He still wants to make the proper lateral tie-rods!

transpixel FASTEN-EIGHT

He calls the power unit of the Starz'Truck "FASTEN-EIGHT"..an 8 wheel drive system with a 4-axle suspension. There is always a pragmatic realism to his multi-purpose design.  The front grill was inspired by the 2003 Cadillac Sixteen concept. transpixel
