Mad Political

Recommended Posts

Just finished this the other day. The interesting thing is that this car puts me on the right and Jairus on the left side of things! :angry::o:) Lacquer paint, pearl white , red, and blue. Slixx decals were used. I used my resin tires and slicks on it. Now it sits right. I only added plug wires. I am on the learning curve with newer funny cars. The next one I will detail better. I have all of the Mad cars and even the Craftsman buzzsaw car. Does anyone know if decals were ever made for the Mad "Ugly" car?

Nice Build..Are You sure you want to do a fully detailed Modern day Funny??

Lots of A/N fittings and small wire for sensor wires to the Puter.

And I'm on the Left... why? ;)

Left side of car, "Gore - Loser!"

Right side of car, "Bush - Loser!"

You - left, me - right. Right? Or do you approve of both sides? :D:D:D:D

James, I think I will pass on the AMT Peanut One - Quarter Mile Smile.

Dwayne, I have the quick builder black car but didn't know they did the "Ugly" car. I will have to look for that one.

Andy,

Very nice build. Really good job on the decals. I don't have the patience for getting them to settle.

I thought you would have more experience with the funny car kits based on the resin kits you make. Maybe you just used the chassis to mock up those kits. I have completed only one kit out of box and used many for the chassis on other builds: altereds like fiats, tees and bantams.
