Just finished building this replica of the '72 Blue Max Mustang. I used the Model King re-issue of the old MPC Mustang and swapped the decals for a set from Slixx.

More pics and details of the build can be found at the link.

Another from the classic funny years.
I remember reading a feature in Hot Rod, how you would cheer for your favourite. Be it driver, or if you owned a ford you cheered the Mustangs, if dad drove a Chevy it might be the Vega's you rooted for or the Cuda's etc.
The fact that most ran a Chrysler derived mill was of no real importance.
In the UK a good Funny car field consisted of around a dozen cars total, so we just cheered whoever ran :rolleyes:
I have this in my stash so i'll build this one one day
Thanks, John

Nice clean work! I actually had a dream about this model kit last night while laying in bed. I guess I was trying to figure out what kit to start next.

Anyway, beautiful build. Clean work and a nice model.

thanks;

i have been told that, but the kit was a limited run kit, and im looking for just the tires and rims to it, not a whole kits, i would like to finish the kits i have now I have two AMT SCHLITZ funny cars, both bought on ebay, and ,arked as sealed kits but not when i got them, hence missing parts

Firefighter was not that limited though, theres plenty out there to warrant a low price. ebay is the only place i have seen these tires for around 5 bucks a pair...as some sellers sell them seperate
