'53 Studebaker Fuel Altered


Recommended Posts

Built several years ago for a build off / challenge with my good modeling buddy, Frank......



This build combines bits from two of my all-time favorite drag kits......

Body is from Revell's Miss Deal funny car (I chopped the roof), while the chassis and drivetrain are from MPC's Winged Express altered..... 

Wheels and tires were sourced from my very deep parts box.... Paint is Tamiya Clear Red

over Tamiya Gold base, with Tamiya Pearl White in the coves.... Decals were made by me on my computer.



Here's a pic of the Stude together with Frank's entry into the build-off.....

Perfect!  A beautiful example of early sixties craziness!  This is one of those models that is so obvious when you see it done that you wonder why no-one else has done it before ( at elast, not that I've seen)

You can tell your buddy Frank that you whooped him!
