jlucky Posted December 28, 2022 Share Posted December 28, 2022 You may have noticed that all of my posts so far have been dragsters, but I do build funny cars as well, although because of the body I tend not to do much if any detailing. That said, a few years back I made an effort to build Gene Snow’s 1970 “Rambunctious” Dodge Challenger funny car with some detailing. The kit is of course the Johan Challenger. Tip-of-the-hat to Tim Boyd and his fantastic book: Collecting Drag Racing Model Kits, where I learned that the Johan body is perhaps the most accurate Challenger body based on the proper wheel wells etc. This being built a few years back, it seems that all that detailing was so much easier. Included are various fuel, ignition and gauges wiring and plumbing. The kit had the “Ram-Rod” decals but I only used the ones that worked with the real car and then waited a few years to get the final touch – a set of Slixx decals to complete the look. I’ve also included a photo of the Funny Car collection as it exists so far and the latest iteration of “the garage”, which is always a work in progress. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
