Dave Deal 1/24 Go Mad Nomad from Revell
Dave Deal has been designing devilish driving devices for decades. The Go Mad Nomad is another rad ride guaranteed to get gearheads grinning. This model was designed based on the designs Dave drew for Revell. It features the nomadic surfer “Rincon Ron” burning rubber as he cruises the land, searching for the perfect wave. Build this far-out masterpiece and get the surfer dude to the beach! Kit features huge rear tires, a blower scoop and hi-rider front suspension.
With sunblock and wax ready, here comes Rincon Ron driving his cool ‘GO-MAD Nomad’ as only Dave Deal would visualize a surfer’s scene. This is one of the latest release from Revell kit # 85-4310. The kit has a 1971 stamp on the chassis and by the look of this sample, the molds are holding very well for their age. I’ve seen less old models with far more flash and molding lines than this one.
The Revell GO-MAD Nomad has only 57 parts thus making it a suitable model kit for the young modellers. The parts are molded in white and chrome and are for the most part large enough not to loose them that easy to the carpet monster. The clear parts and very clear, free of scratches and Revell added the remaining clear parts in a bag within a bag, so Kudos! The rear tires are huge and are made of a rather soft injected rubber. At first glance they look very soft to me. I just hope they don’t get deformed after assembly or after time.
Having lived in the Surf capital of Puerto Rico (Rincón), I have something very nice planned for this model kit so stick around for this one. Now, I wonder if Rincon Ron has anything to do with the town in Puerto Rico or if it is purely coincidental? Humm…
