Comet Cyclone Funny Car

Recommended Posts

I picked this up as a glue-bomb a few years ago. The body and glass were surprisingly good, but the engine, interior and chassis was pretty much a solid chunk of styrene and cement.

I saved/rebuilt what I could and robbed the parts box for what I couldn't.

A scratch built front axle and some left-over decals over the House of Kolor Planet Green completed the car.

Comments always welcome. :)

That's a nice save Mike as it's lookin' good, and I believe that I have that kit in my "stash" somewhere.

Nice save. Good to see someone use those '80s era Ertl '40 Ford "Avenger" decals, too. :D

Thanks for the compliments. 

It's the first funny car I've done... now I want a few more! :)

Fabulous save! Aren't these even more fun than a fresh build of the latest state of the art kit? You should be proud of this one. Well done and model on!
