Hallo buddies,

once a time, i built a Phantom Turbinecar Stationwagon. Now, what to do with the original body out of the EZ-Build-Kit from JoHan? That was the question.

Today, i will present you my 10th(!) Turbinecar, named "Showtime".

A lot of kitbashing, scratchbuilding only little a bit, wiring, bmf and paintjob as always - ready to run :D

Here we go - have fun with the pictures.

That is totally outstanding! I've always wanted to build a Turbine. But did not want to build it stock. Thanks for the idea. Now I need to find one. Maybe a Hemi powered gasser!

This looks fantastic! It looks much better as "non Turbine version". Funny Car Frame fits nicely inside the body and I like the engine detail alot.

You gave me an interesting idea, I have one Turbine Car Gluebomb, which was going to be Custom, but since I don't have good chassis or interior for it......... ;):lol:

Thank you everybody for kind words! i appreciate it.

For the basic i took the Revell "Avenger Funny Car" (Kit# 7652) that was not complete and reduced the frame about 1.3mm to get the correct wheelbase. Also i reduced the handlebars, fuellines.

The luck of the builder is, as the rear wheels that i bought from GMS-Customs :) are exactly as wide as the body, so that i had no work on the inside of body or make the rear axle narrow.

Your ideas, to build it as custom, hemi or anything else sounds good! Some more versions will follow, if i complete some other work on my bench ;)

Awesome! Must say this is the first time I've seen the Turbine done as a drag car.

Nice ..... real nice. I do have a comment though, there is no parachute on the back. I suppose that the fluted rocket tips on the back could be where packed 'chutes could be on a full size dragster.
