Wow Shane, nice collection of drag racers in quite a variety. Please tell me where the front and rear wheels and tires on the Pure Hell build are out of.

Jack, If you would like to sell any of your decals I'm very interested.

Brad, Thanks for the compliments. The front wheels and tires are from Competition Resins, The rear tires are a soft compound from ArrowHead which I hear is reopening their doors. the rear rims are a combination of the center hubs from the bantam blast kit and the outer rim is from detail master..

Thanks Shane... I appreciate the kind words. You have some very nice builds yourself. I love the "Pure Hell" car, its clean wth the right amount of detail and looks great. Paint is amazing too. I also really like the yellow one right below it as well. I look forward to seeing more of your builds.

This thread has just exploded. The hits just keep on comin'!

Dave Zinn, you know what a fan I am of your "realist" style. I've always contended it was a combination of your control of color and texture in your builds, a subtle approach to what is actually a prodigious technical ability, and something in the way you deal with natural lighting in your photos (can it be the diffuse sunshine of the coastal weather?). Now I have a clue - your photos of geezerman's Chikin' Koop take what was clearly a fine build and just make it sing!

Zane, the Hollish Bros. coupe may be a relatively recent build, but what a classic it has become. However, the examples you posted remind me of the breadth and range of skill you possess. I continue to be inspired by your work. Looking forward to more of the Surfers build...

Jack Logan, your decal work is stunning, especially considerring most of it is off an inkjet. And that drag bike... B) :lol: :(

Cruz, I generally don't associate your sanitary, super detailed style with drag cars, but boy does it work!

Wayne, you are the king of the kontemporary rear-engine top fueler. I kan't get enough of 'em. :D

I build Old Skool as much because it suits my still-evolving technique as because this subject matter "speaks to me". So, to all the great practitioners of the "modern style" (Chris Sobak, Romell, Damir, Brett) and all those stunning replica builds (Roger Isenhour, Mitch Reeves), I only hope I can continue to up my game so I can play in your ball park someday...

I'm sure I've left out some other great builders who have posted here, so my apologies for that. This thread has covered so much ground already in just 3 pages. May it continue to rock on!

B.

FUN THREAD! My favorite type of racing. I thought I will throw something a little different at y'all. Still on the need to finish list, but you should get the idea.

I don't ever remember seeing this one done Dave. All your builds are great including this one. The only thing missing is the Chik Fil A sponsorship on the car, LOL!

Here are some modern funny cars. It probably won't take too long for folks to see that I'm a bit of a Prudhomme and Prudhomme racing fan so a lot of my builds revolve around that.

Tommy Johnson, JR. Skoal Monte Carlo funny car.
