1/16 Vega Wonderwagon Funny Car

This was competed in 1996, before Slixx released a 1/16th scale decal sheet for this car, so most of the decals were done by hand, thus some inaccuracies. Built mostly box stock, all of the metal finishes were done using Testors Metalizer paints, and the red, yellow, and blue area with Fred Cady decals, cut (or stamped out in the case of the dots) to shape.

:lol: VERY NICE BUILD ON THIS BEAST!! WERE DID YOU GET THIS KIT AT? :lol:

I finished this in '96 and it has been stored in a storage container since then. Just no good place to display it now.

Anyway, this was done before Slixx decided to release a 1/16th scale decal for this car, so most of the decals were done by hand and there are some inaccuracies. Ah well, that's life.

Here are three pics:

The re-issued Model King/Revell Jungle Jim kit is the base for this kit. The back section and roof of the body was scratchbuilt, though you may be able to get a 1/16th scale resin-cast Vega panel wagon body by now. I know Slixx released a 1/16th scale Wonderwagon sheet for use on the Vega kit.

Competition Resins makes a resin body and Slixx has a decal sheet for those interested in building one- that sure would've been easier in '96 if I had that option. :D
