    This Funny Car was scratchbuilt 40 years ago using a number of kits, including a Monogram 1/32 Camaro body over a chopped and channeled Revell chassis. It is completely plumbed with working steering, throttle linkage, fire extinguisher release system, and parachute release. It is painted with an automotive...

    This is an out-of-box build. The picture is from a local contest this past fall.

    This was a fun build. It's mostly built out of the box with some detail added. As usual, I came across some reference material after the fact that would have changed a few things had I known...Testor's paint all around. Excellent kit to build; no problems with fit. The decals were about the best...

    This is one I built about 20 years ago. I wish I still had the patience and dexterity that I had back then. The escape hatch is hinged, and the body was airbrushed with OneShot lettering enamels.

    These reissue kits are much better than the originals. The one-piece frames are nice and straight, and help make for a clean assembly.

    I used a Competition Resins body, Slixx decals, and a Polar Lights chassis. I've been experimenting with Testor's One Coat lacquers. They dry quick and polish nicely, but the metal flake seems too large for the scale and photographs weird. I am still on the fence with them.

    I built this as a tribute to a model my dad built 30 years ago. He didn't paint the rear blue or have glass, so I did mine to match. The body is from a Jungle Jim car, but it was the best I could do since I was not able to buy one of these kits on eBay. I got some aftermarket decals, and here she...

    I kitbashed this 1/25 Match Racer when I was 15 years old. That was 41 years ago in 1973, and I've still got it! I was nuts about Nitro Funny Cars and superdetailed this creation that includes working steering, throttle linkages, fire extinguisher release system, and much more. I stretched a 1/32...

    I really enjoyed building this Revell kit. It's accurate and detailed; the parts actually fit. I used Testor's lacquer for the finish.

    This 1965 Falcon Funny Car was built from an AMT "Wild Child" kit. The finish is Testor's One Coat Star Spangled Blue lacquer over Krylon Brushed Metallic. The decals came from an AMT 1967 Galaxie XL kit.
  • File: 1968 442 Funny Car

    This is a car I built from an old Johan 1968 442 body I bought on eBay. The chassis, headers, shocks, brake lines, and interior body are all made of aluminum tube and sheet. The engine is wired with accelerator linkage. I drilled the rear wheels and added resin logs and bolts. There are also bolts and...

    This AMT kit was built box-stock to replicate the 1:1 car.
