We may or may not have already passed peak oil. All we know is that the post-apocalyptic vision wrought in Mad Max films may someday become reality, and then we're all gonna wish we had Interceptors. AutoArt Models recently came out with a 1:18 die cast Interceptor model recently, but it doesn't come filthy enough for some fans. Detail-man extrodinaire Paul Miller decided to do something about it and built his own insanely detailed diorama complete with lots of dirt and dust (and some fuel drips!), Max himself, and other well chosen accessories for the scene. We're way behind building our own Edsel model for the Autoblog Garage, but Paul's work is at a level we'll never achieve. We're inspired to try, though, after seeing his work! Paul will also build you a custom model or diorama with this insane level of detail, provided you're willing to part with some money. He charges between $400 and $700 for his dioramas and his contact info can be found at Hemmings via source link below. You'll also find more pics of his Mad Max masterpiece there, and you can check out what a squeaky clean Interceptor model looks like right out of the box in our gallery below.

      Very cool detail. I picked up one of these when they first came out and it was totally worth it. I really hope AutoArt makes a run of cars from the first Mad Max movie. I'd like to see an original interceptor and maybe a Big Bopper! They already have mold necessary so it shouldn't be too tough.

      exactly. once it has the tanks in the back... it needs to be dirty/rusty/worn. not all sparkly clean.

      technically it should probably be missing the monza front end too... since it only really had (i) tanks in back (ii) being all worn and dirty (iii) complete front clip ... for what? 2-3 minutes at the beginning?

      Wow, totally buying that

      That is very awesome, too bad I already bought the car from AutoArt.

      I never did understand why they would go with the car from The Road Warrior and not make it worn.
