Minifigs continue to release all types of miniatures to support various rules systems. Taking their lead from the Maximillian 1934 rules from Mana Press, this 1930’s era vehicle is for those who like their auto dueling with a touch of class.
Known as the ‘Bradford Bomber’, this is an all metal casting which requires some assembly. The shape of the final vehicle is quintessentially 19430’s, a streamlined racing vehicle perhaps seen on the racetracks of Europe, with an exhaust system running along the side and a driver clad in the typical finery of the period, flying helmet, goggles and leather coat.
What makes this a Maximillian 1934 however is the addition of some serious firepower. This particular version sports a Lewis gun and a light cannon next to the driver’s cockpit-like home, with twin rocket launchers mounted on the front. The shape of the vehicle provides a sense of this being a fast vehicle with a sting. Bad Baz, the driver behind the wheel, is ready to do some serious damage.
Although a pretty solid piece of kit, which could probably cause some serious damage if you dropped it on your toe, this is very much in keeping with the ‘car wars’ aesthetic enshrined in the excellent Maximillian 1934 rules. One to get a hold of, paint up in racing green, and take onto the tracks or roads of an alternative past.
