"Frantic Ford" Mustang Funny Car

Recommended Posts

Just finished this one, I used the Polar Lights Tommy Grove Mustang Funny Car kit, with Slixx decals, and took the Hemi engine in the Polar Lights Hawaiian Charger Funny Car kit (the Frantic Ford had a Hemi in it) Paint is automotive basecoat / clearcoat. I also wired and plumbed it :)

Nice job! Very clean build and realistic, it's the small stuff that gives a build the right look.

Gorgeous work Bruno. A first time seeing those decals and your work makes them look that much better.

Hi Bruno, a very good looking model.  Super clean and well photographed too.

What are your impressions of the Polar Lights kit, I don't have a clue about these kits?

Nice finish on the wheels.  How did you do these?

This is the first Polar Lights funny car I build, those kits require some work to make them look nice, but I like them overall. Things I didn't like;

- the slicks are in two piece

- windows are too thick, I'll make my own windows next time

- the blower belt is separate  and rubber, which is a niece idea but here's how it looked

A friend gave me a part of strap that comes from a printer he said, it's perfect for blower belts on 1/25 cars, so that's what I used

Wheels were stripped and painted with Alclad polished aluminum :)

Let me pile on with the accolades :D.  What an eye-catcher!  The great photography really captures the nice work you have done on this.  Thanks for sharing!

Very nice work on this Funny Car. I can't remember seeing these built before, but while I've been looking for those Polar Lights' FC Kits and wondering about their quality, it's nice to see that these can be turned into very good looking models. Really nice paint job and fine detailing. Also I like the color of those wheels, they look very realistic to me.

   That is one sweet Mustang build!  All those little

details make it just pop.

   I love it, let's just hope the body don't just fly off!!:(
