Christine gets trashed, finished pics.

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking of building this for some time now, the Christine 58 Fury, but after Buddy Repperton and the gang trash it.  One of my favourite films of all time it hurts to see the film car destroyed, its also hard to recreate it !  There is a build thread in the workbench, and its now parked up in its new home, an old Fujimi garage I adapted to look vaguely like the garage scene.

I took these pics at the models first outing, a large car show in the UK.  Thanks to those who followed the build, and enjoy the pics !

Fantastic build & finished car Martin. I did see it yesterday at Buster Langs but not all details that are in the pics.

I gotta say that is one fantastic recreation! Y'all know how I feel about the "stock" '58 Belvedere, but this came out terrific! Gotta love the "busted" windshield............no safety glass in 1958!

Take a bow Martin!! B)

Sorry, Bill, but laminated safety glass was universal by 1941..... Hollywood, however, ignores history on a daily basis!

I followed your build and I knew it would be great, but it turned out even better than I thought.

Amazing! Looks horribly close to how I remember it looking in the film, and Ron's post above proves it!

A sad sight, but we all know what happened next.....
