1/16th scale 55 chevy nomad funny car WIP
Posted by oldfueler on Tuesday, September 06, 2011 6:11 PM

New project started today. I am using a Revell F/C Chassis.  Flashpoint resins 526 BAE Hemi and a bunch of other parts from these  guys. I have shortened the chassis to fit the 55's wheelbase. Bumpers will be molded to the body, tons of bodywork to do to make this thing look like a funny car body. This will be my version of  Don Schumacher's Wonder Wagon Vega F/C. I don't have a lot of time to build , so it will take a while.  Suggestions are welcome. BTW I need 1 front tire for this beast. I have 2 but 1 is seriously warped.

Sounds like a plan!  I definately like the idea and I'm looking forward to seeing it put into action.
