  1. Progress on my Jo-Han Javelin Funny car was moving along smoothly until I attempted to remove a warp to the interior tub. I don't know if it was the age of the plastic or If the water was too hot (or maybe a little but of both) but the piece is now unusable. Would by any chance someone have a extra one they would be willing to part with? It does not have to be new as long as its workable. As you can see mine is toast. Cash or trades just let me know what you need.
  2. I started restoration on this some time ago, several pieces were missing or damaged during the disassembly. Some of the parts were replaced by members of this board or replaced using a MPC Dyno Don Cougar as a donor. This is the first JoHan Funny Car with this type of chassis I have built, it's a very finicky build. This is the progress so far.
  3. I started restoration on a Johan 1970 Javelin Funny Car If any one has a copy of the instructions it would be a great help. A scan or copy is fine. Also if any one has any photos of a built up chassis that would be a big help also. This is what i have so far.
  4. Mark, I believe you are correct I found this image and it looks like the same body.
  5. I just purchased a lot of kits and there was a AMT Red Alert Chevelle in the batch. I inventoried the kit and it is missing the radiator support (shown in the instructions) but the body in the kit has the support molded in. I have searched the internet and every 70-72 chevelle body I could find does not have this piece molded in. Any clue what kit this body is from? There are no numbers or writing molded in the underside of the part. The chassis hood and interior fit perfect.
  6. These kits were a great concept but the fit on the parts were the worst. It's a real challenge to produce a decent looking finished product. I thought this would be a quick out of the box build, was I wrong. I must have used a half of tube of epoxy to hold this one together.
  7. Finally got around to decaling my gasser. Here are the completed photos.
  8. The 63 Vette Gasser is complete minus graphics. I'm still looking for some appropriate decals to finish her off, Suggestions welcome. The color is actually more of a eggplant color in person, I need to take some photos with better lighting.
  9. Starting to see some progress. Most of chassis and interior done, paint on body is cured enough to start working on detailing it.
  10. Most of the paints were mixed using Model Master and Testors. They might not be 100% accurate but they looked close enough to me.
  11. Chassis and engine almost complete. Body and hood ready with base coat.
