Raul will be hard-pressed to finish this build in the time frame alotted...so he probaly shouldn't be considered the 'slam-dunk winner' as yet... :P

Or at all!! ;) B) ;)

His models are only average at best...he just does a really good job touching them up in Photo Shop!! :lol: :lol:

Did I say that?! :lol: :lol:

Welp here's what i accomplished so far, I'm goin for the street n strip look, itll have radials on the back and full exhaust.... ok so its a pro street, its still a drag car!

Cut out the front fender wells and got the blower setup mocked up

Got narrowed frame rails from a 57 Chevy street machine and narrowed them even more

Adding fender wells from Pro stock firebird

I like it!

Dirk,
That's not fair!! I haven't even looked through my pile of kits to figure out what I want to build and you're already headed for the finish line!! :P

I guess I better get started! ;)

OK, I'm going to build the Revell '64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt. No picks yet, unless you want to see a picture of the box. :( I still have to finish my 43 Willys gasser pickup and my '58 Impala street machine for the NNL West BEFORE I even start on the T-Bolt.

I think that along with the sealed kits the winner should get all the entrys as well. Just a thought to some added motivation.

I think your description in your heading is a little confusing...normally when you say dragsters you are refering to the long(or sometimes short) open wheel drag cars ie. top fuel,alcohol dragster,etc.You might want to rephrase it to read Drag Car Build Off I think it might help the response with the "door slammer" crowd.

Now there’s the attitude of a Marine, baby!! “Do or die, there is no try”!!

Like I once told an executive at a supplier company, "to me, 'try' means that you're prepared to fail, and that is not acceptable...TRY NOT, MUST DO". He never forgot what I told him.



Realistically, the biggest problem with sending a built model is in packaging it well enough to get it where it needs to go without being damaged along the way. It would really be a shame to see just how many of the finished models would show up at the winner’s door damaged and in drastic need of repair. So with that, I'll support sending a new kit to the winner. If he wants my model, he's welcome to come pick it up.

Regards,

That's too much freakin resin for me to finish in anything less than a year!! :P My build will be straight from the box with a few PE bits thrown in as necessary.

The Sergeant likes monster trucks, Studes and muscle cars from the 60s and 70s. I'll send you an email with his address.
