Prudhomme's '70 Cuda

22 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

From the Monogram Snake/Mongoose combo. This is the first flopper I built. Done just for fun without worrying about the inaccuracies of the kit and chalking it up as experience for future builds. Other than the plug wires and drilled out header ends, it's purely oob. Paint is Krylon Sun Yellow. Thanks for looking.....

Always a great kit built up. No matter how nice [in this case], or how bad they are built I always get a smile forming in my mind.

I was a lad when these came out so fond memories are attached.

Cool

Nice job!

This one always reminds me of my youth.

Dad built both the Snake and Mongoose for me.

That's nicely done Cuda Funny Car! Nice paint and detailing on it, very cleanly built too. I mean that parts fit nicely to each other and that kind of basic stuff, which sometimes causes trouble to me. :D

How did you like the Krylon Yellow paint? Did you decant it into an airbush bottle?

Thanks for the comments guys.

It was shot straight out of the can. My luck with Krylon paint has been a hit and miss affair. The yellow did lay down nice, but it is fairly thin and took a number of coats (5 or 6 I believe) for good coverage. On the other hand, I've tried their burgundy in the past and found it to be super thin, even after around ten light to moderate coats, it would pull away from edges and high points.

Nice job on your Cuda, Brian. Wish mine was signed by the man! I see you're from Rhinelander. I've got some cousins not too far east of you, near Wabeno. Got a good family friend who runs a sign painting business up in Crandon, too.

Good lookin' build! The 'Cuda was one of -if not- the nicest body styles of the era in my opinion.

Thanks guys. The 'Cuda is one of my favorites from the era too.

Ed, the slicks did come with this kit, though they are M+H Racemasters, when they should be Goodyears. Mine is from the most recent re-issue in the late 90's.
