My first 1/16 scale model since I built Gene Snows Snowman for a friend when Revell first released it. This is going to be base on the recently released Hawaiian Charger Funny Car with changes to almost everything except the basic chassis. GM body, 3D printed injected BBC, 3 speed Lenco trans, 9 inch Ford rear end in place of the quick change in the kit, additional photo etch detail parts, and the inevitable scratch built bits and pieces. This is not going to be a quick build but I hope you enjoy watching the struggle. The blower in the last picture is not going to be used as this is going to be a straight up injected nitro engine. I'll try and do updates as often as I can as the various sub assemblies come together
I just went through some boxes of truck kits in my garage and pulled out this. I remember I won it as a door prize at a kit show many years ago. At the time I wasn't thrilled about it, but it was the only car kit on the table, so it's what I chose. Looking at it now, I'm pleased that I kept it. I like all the details it includes inside and out. I'm wanting to build it, but because of it's size, I want to do it right! I plan on keeping the interior as designed, just detailed to make it look it's best. Maybe some velvet to represent shag and lots of wood paneling. What I'm at a loss to do is how the outside should be presented. With a canvas of this size, it's going to need something! I'm leaning toward paint panels, maybe some lace and fogged edges. Possibly a small mural on the upper areas behind the doors. A cool name would be a plus! It's gotta be very seventies in color choices and in themes. But not raunchy, it's going to be on display and I have kids. Any ideas? I'd like to see vintage pictures from the 70s.
