Johan 70 Challenger FC

Picked up this one in its original box. The body seems very accurate and well shaped, easy to sand. Anyone built one of these? Also, is there a better instruction guide to putting the tube chassis etc together, like a step by step guide, as the instructions provide no clue what to assembler 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.

Steve,

I rebuilt this JoHan "Rambunctious" Challenger a couple years ago.

Not the kit decals or front wheels.

I don't remember any problems with the chassis.

Johan funny car kits were very good ones to build.

Geez, never thought about using directions. ;) I've built these before and usually just start from the inside out, like the real deal. Ya gotta have a chassis to hang stuff from, so that's where I start. Just look for things that would go in a logical order. Don't forget about painting various pieces and parts so you can add them as needed.

Not much help, huh?? :o:(
