Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Hi! Over the years, I've been blessed with finding a fair amount of vintage Johan kits, some of wich I actually built in the 60's when they came out. My new iterations are more cleanly built, needles to say.... Last april, I found this funny-car, complete and mint. I knew the intricate Woody Gilmore designed frame would be finnicky to build, and I was right! So, to add to my Challenger and Javelin FC "collection", I built this car mostly stock, adding just a few details (wiring, hoses, magneto, fuel pump, barrel valve and throttle cable). The special effort would be in the livery... No stock decals would do! So, Tamya's pearl white with pearl green Americana's acrylic marble effect, Testor's acrylic pearl grape shadings, gel pen graphics, home-made wizard decals and airbrush effects, topped with Mr. Hobby Top coat clear (many coats). I also experimented with Revell's new spray chrome on all the chassis and body tins, which provided fantastic effect. You just have to give it a few day to harden, and avoid marring it with your finger tips. I like to imagine such a car as part of the Coca-Cola Cavalcade of funny-cars at OCIR in the early 70's: that was the vibe, don't you say? I also have the Pinto FC in my stash, but it might well end up with a totally different body. We'll see! CT
