This is another of my mostly out of the box builds. I always thought this was a pretty paint job. It went together great, the only problem being some tearing of the side decals.

Oh man, that looks great. I think that is the first time I have seen that one built, and it makes me want to throw it on the ol' gotta build list. Great pics, too, thanks for sharing.

Well kid I was wondering when you was going to post one of those Funny Cars. The Stardust is just as I remember seeing her way back when, when she was racing in southern Cal. Really a great build!!!!

Keep up the great work.

Stardust came out real nice Bill, Don Schumacher's Stardust cars were some of my favorite Funnies.
