As with many of us Tim Boyd has inspired me to build subjects I would not normally think of. And with his latest post of a wonderful 32 Street Roadster, it reminded me of this build. 

I enjoyed learning about these great drag cars from Tim and research on my own. Here is what I came up with. Link to humble build, http://s176.photobuc...treet Roadster/

Lets see what you might have!

 

Nice job on that roadster Jim, real nice.

My ancient '29 on '32 rails, built long before Revell's series of mid-nineties Deuce kits were released.

Here's another, based on Revell's Bantam parts pack body and a bunch of parts box items.  Also ancient...

>Jb, These sre really cool...are they 1/25 scale ?

 

thanks for the compliment! yes they are, well, mostly 1/24 scale but some 1/25 scale parts in there too. body is the austin seven rebadged as the BMW 3/15 Dixi, from Revell of Germany...the fenderless one was a resin pop of that body with some modifications and i modified it more for example i chopped about 3 scale inches off the cowl and used the tweedy pie chassis and the ala kart hemi. the fendered one basically used the BMW kit but of course it has been modified a bit. Search for "austin" in workbench and under glass for more pics and a build thread for each.

 

i am digging that bantam right above this post, that sort of thing was my inspiration for the fenderless car and one of these days i am going to sacrifice one of my bantam bodies to build something similar except i might find some fenders and running boards to use on it.

Here's my poor little stalled out project. I fubar-ed the paint, then decided I hated the lime green, so its just sitting on the shelf.

If you have a Revell Bantam body, build it up into something cool.  Might as well.  I built that Bantam in about '91 or so, and I had (have) no issue with using hard to find stuff.  Build 'em all!

 

I dig all of the builds you posted above!

It could if it were set up as more of a Drag Car. "Street Roadster" was a NHRA class!

 

Some great looking models here guys.

attachicon.gifuntitled drags.bmpI think that along with fenders fr and rr they also had to have headlights as well as a windscreen.

This is definately cool!   Great thread guys.

In the spirit of keeping this thread going....here's one from the 2011 NNL NATIONALS...


http://images57.fotk...DSC_0893-vi.jpgDSC_0893-vi.jpg

Chris Waroner is the builder of this '32 Ford AA/SR dragster. He told me it was well along before my article in the same subject appeared.

Hmmm...now where have we seen this one before??? Well actually, back at the beginning of this very thread. Here's a picture I took of Jame's A/SR when he displayed it at the 2011 NNL Nationals. Sweet! Tim DSC_0959-vi.jpg

From the 2012 NNL Nationals....

It wears "B/A" (B Altered) NHRA classification livery, which means it is a post-1971 or so replica, but to my eyes this one is a classic 1960's A/SR drag racing machine. Darrell Peters' "Altered States" is based on the MPC '32 Chevy Cabriolet kit, but wears all the appropriate A/SR modifications. They finishing touch is a sharp 409 Chevy engine, a terrific choice vs. the so-commonly seen SBC's out there.

 

And yes, this is the same Darryl better known as "Doctor Darryl" who makes some pretty cool aftermarket drag and Midget decals for us....TIM

I love this, just paint the scoop and radiator shell with red oxide primer,paint the roll bar white and put some numbers and a class on the doors with some thinned out white paint and it would look awesome. Then it would look perfect for that era of race car.

I have most the pieces to build some thing like this. I have another project going now but may add this to the short list.

Thanks for posting the picture Tim.

Thanks for the props Pete and Bill. This was my original version, but fixing the radiator shell was problematic, and putting the moon tank in front made it look goofy. I like the way it is now, with the hood and no tank. I'm planning on painting it with the new Testor's Aztec pearl green, close to the original color, but being acrylic, very easy to spray.
