  1. 1970s funny car experts needed

    There were also versions with the straight axle inside the frame rails, different types of torsion bars , etc.
  2. 1970s funny car experts needed

    Check out John Teresi's build of the Mongoose Corvette Funny Car . He changes the front of the chassis of a Revell chassis to one of the later versions.

    You'll probably have to mix and match. The Tommy Ivo dragster has a nice engine and valve covers. Blower hat is'nt too great though. That twin engine dragster "Two Much " has the same engine. The old Revell funny car and dragster kitshad nice blower hats.
  4. New Acrylic Painting

    I did this one entirely from my imagination. It was done with Liquitex and Grumbacher acrylics on gessoed board.
  5. This is mind blowing ! The average person, looking at these pics, would think he was looking at a real car. I'm downloading all these pics and will use them as reference for years to come. Can't wait to see this thing finished.
  6. Ramchargers rail

    great job ! It's about time for a rerelease of this one.
  7. Unraveling The Snake Pit

    I have never had the opportunity to meet Mr, Keeler. I would love to ask him how he came up with the idea for Dodge Fever. What were his influences ,etc. I would really like to hear why he decided on a monocoque chassis . Back then ,as a 12 yr old ,I had no idea what a monocoque chassis was. It is interesting that this was several years before Mickey Thompson or Barry Setzer tried it in the real world. Along with Jim Keeler, Hank Borger and Don Emmons greatly influenced my model building in those days. I was also amazed by the work of Richard Carroll, but I had no idea how he built the stuff he did. That guy was truly in a class by himself.
  8. Unraveling The Snake Pit

    I still have the original magazine with these articles. Jim Keeler was a man ahead of his time His series of articles on building Dodge Fever 2 still amazes me every time I look at them. I learned to detail dragster and funny car engines from his articles. I use to amaze my friends with the skills I learned from those magazines. LOL
  9. Revellion

    Great job ! i have'nt thought about this kit in years. Seeing it brings back so many memories of the time I built it as a kid.
  10. R B Motion

    I have'nt been on here for a while, sorry I'm late,but thanks for the help.
  11. R B Motion

    Close is fine with me.
  12. R B Motion

    I need some help concerning R B Motion's tie rod ends, tubing ,etc. I have never used their parts before and would like to get some to replace the suspension parts in a Polar lights funny car kit. My question is what size should I order? If anyone has experience with these parts, I would greatly appreciate the help.
  13. The Howard Cams Rattler

    Nice work. I wish Revell would reissue this kit.
  14. 1970 Motown Missile

    Good Job ! I've heard a lot of bad things about Reiable Resin. Did you have any problems with them ?
  15. Revell 1962 Corvette Gasser

    Nice work I got this kit a couple of weeks ago. I really like the wheels and tires in this kit. I am using them on an altered wheelbase 55 Chevy I'm building. Again, very nice , clean work.
