Revell 1/16 Gene Snow’s Snowman ’72 Charger Funny Car
March 9, 2013 in Cars & Motorcycles
I just love the old Revell 1/16 scale funny car kits. I remember when this kit came out. I was about 9 years old and being in north Texas we are not too far from Gene Snow’s shop in Ft Worth. Anyway, there was a store kinda like Wal-Mart called Gibson’s…and they had the real car on display in the automotive area with the kits all around it. My dad took me down there and I got to sit in the car. My dad bought the kit and built it for me. Of course being 9 years old I wanted to mess with it and over the years it got destroyed. Several years ago I found one on Ebay and bought it. I built it straight from the box. I love the fact that they give you wires and hoses to wire it up, although they can be a pain in the butt. A friend of mine had a car body shop and painted the body with real automotive paint and about 3 coats of clear after I decaled it. I have built several of these over the years but this one is my favorite because of the memory with my dad.
