Tom McEwen's 1974 Duster Funny Car


Recommended Posts

This is the Revell Tom McEwen 1974 Duster Funny Car.  This came as part of a Revell HotRod double kit I found a while back at a yard sale.  The kit went together pretty well although there was considerable flash on all the plastic parts.  Unfortunately, as I was taking the body downstairs to paint it, I tripped and turned a perfectly good body in to 3 large pieces and many small ones.  The body is now about equal parts 35 yr old styrene, super glue and body filler, but it looks okay.  Overall a fun build.  The paint is Testors White, and Italian Red with Tamiya Racing Blue on the body.  The frame is painted with Tamiya Metallic Blue.  I took some "artistic license" with the paint, especially on the nose of the car, so it is not an exact replica.  Definitely NOT perfect, but a good time killer during the pandemic.  Thanks for looking and comments welcome.
