Tim......."Wow" this is very impressive.......love all your other post as well.



************

John....thanks a bunch, and I am equally impressed with all the work you've posted in this thread. But out of all of them, my al-time favorite HAS to be that outrageous 4-engined fuel altered drag boat and van combo. INCREDIBLE!

I need to catch up with you sometime when I'm on the west coast....Best regards...TIM

Just a quick build I finished last week. Used a Jimmy Flintstone body, Bantam Blast Chassis, Parts box BBC and Slixx Decals. Paint is Tamiya Metalic Blue with Testors Wet Clear.

 

I figured that if Willy Borsch could go Funny Car racing, Jungle Jim could go Altered Driving!

Thanks. The rail if I recall was the Hemisphere ( ?) dragster and the Fiat body was modified from the AMT double dragster kit. The Stude was made using the frame from the Double dragster kit and the body was modified from the Miss Deal kit. I cut down a lighter to make the "smokestack " for the inner engine exhaust since this build uses the 2 engine set up. Some people think it is somekind of intake but it is not.

Jim, candy Tangerine with a little bit of clear orange in the clear coat, not too sure of what brands as ours are packaged a bit differently down under. Hope this helps a bit
