I need to build something quickly, so I started this kit. Ia a Revell Go-Mad nomad gasser, a caricature or cartoon of a real car. Few parts, and I think to build it pretty much out of the box. 

Here the kit.

The instructions are fun too, written kind of a comic style. :)

This kit is a re-release, and on the top part of the chassis it say 1970, and the bottom 1971... :D

Thank you Tony! :)

The front suspension-axle if I put them like instructions says. It is kind of backward.

Rotating the springs, it will put the front axle more forward. I think it looks better this way.

That turned out great.  Reminds me of the old cartoons comics.

Thank you Tony, all the Deals Wheels kit are cartoon inspired. :) Here a picture of the other kits. There is also a Glitter Bug kit from the Deals's series, a cartoonish Manx. :)

Nice, can wait to see your done! All three kit are very cool and fun to build, although I build only the Go-Mad, but seems that the Glitter and the Van are the same way. The Glitter Bug was also sold as Swine Hunt, pretty much a military little tank based on the Glitter Bug, with turret etc. It is pretty hard to find the kit. I have the main turret if you want to do the conversion.  

Cool Breez

Love the steelies and wide whites better,..Lot's -O- Fun

Cheers

Thank you Bruce! :)

very cooL !!!

Thank you Richard! :)

Nice Jonathan!!! They did not (unfortunately) re-realese the VW Van, so it is little difficult to find. Have you try on ebay? If you want, when you start to build them post the picture also on this website car-toons.proboards.com . Here they build only cartonish stuff.
