Sodium Glider fantasy Bonneville Streamliner

Recommended Posts

Hi!

My favorite subject: Bonneville cars!

This is a resin reproduction of the Cosmic Charger, by Altered States (good product!). Alterations include: front section made of a kitchen ustensil handle molded to the body, Tommy Ivo's TF rail chassis (shortened), glass canopy out of lipstick tube cap, plus countless scratchbuilt panels, scoops, air extractor, radiator, water & fuel pumps, wiring, hoses & al. Wheels & tires from old Lindberg S-10 Cyclone PU (1/16). Custom made decals, airbrushed decanted Tamya Italian red scallops,  spattering & fades. Testor's white pearl base & Wet look clear. 

Of course, Round 2 reissued the styrene kit one year after I completed this build(!) I have one in my stash, with a Sodium Glider 2 in the cards for this fall. 

Another member of my fantasy FLAT EARTH SOCIETY Bonneville cars team! More next week...

Gotta love styrene, isn't it?
