1/16 Revell Hawain Funny Car Question

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am in the process of building the Revell 1/16 scale 1972 Hawain Funny car.  Not the reissue from the 2010's, but the original release.  Does anyone have any thoughts on what color the interior tin in the body should be??  I have found some pictures of the tin on the chassis, and most of the pictures I've found have the chassis tin surrounding the seat/cockpit as a pearl or metallic blue (can't tell exactly, but I know it is a darker blue) but I can't find any pictures of the body interior tin/doghouse tin.  At the present, I'm inclined to leave it aluminum, but I'm open to other thoughts/opinions.

From photos I have seen, the first color of the tin was Black, and then Plain Aluminum, with it being painted or anodized Blue when Revell started their sponsorship. 


Thank you for the response and many apologies for the delayed response on my part.  I have had a myriad of computer and modem issues that have prevented me from getting online for about 3 weeks!
