Hi everyone. i would like to present for your perusal my first post on this fine forum.

It is the ancient Johan 1963 Chrysler Turbine. Finished in MCW Chrysler Turbine bronze metallic (#6655)

She features a lot of detailing in the engine bay and interior.

All except some period correct license plates and touch up in some areas she is ready for the world!

That looks great! It's nice to see yet another build of this car! I did one a few months back....(elsewhere in this forum) and I don't want to do another for awhile! :)

Your engine bay detail looks good..............more detailed than I decided to do with mine!

.................and BTW welcome! Hope to see you post some more builds!

That is a beautiful build on that Turbine Car Scott. If I ever get to build mine, I hope it comes out just like yours. I was lucky enough to see the Turbine Car at the Chrysler Museum back in '02.

A great model and brilliant build.

I always think this model does not get the credit it deserves. Just about everything is operational on it except the steering wheel and side windows. The more recent mouldings from the 1980-90s though suffered horrendous flash on the chrome tree. Did they improve this for the latest issue?

Superb!!! Excellent build in the correct colors (imho).

I remember as a kid having the kit but was overwhelmed by the complexity and never finished it.

Fantastic job Scott!!

This sure was a beautiful kit for it's day. As a matter of fact, I would say it rivals most modern kits.

A real testament to what Johan could have done if they could have hung in there longer.

Some day I'll need to find another one of these.

I had one years ago & still have a few of it's parts, but where the rest of it went, I have no clue! :)

Nice work Scott!

Steve

That's as good as it gets, in every detail. Not much left to say.

Well, a search shows he has an active Facebook account. Lots of pictures on there of model planes, as well as armour.

Looks like he may have simply switched gears. But I agree with everybody else, that's probably the nicest turbine build

I've ever seen. B)
