First of all, thanks to the guys here for adding this forum. Every site should have a drag racing forum! :D

This car was built from the Revell kit of the same car. I reworked the front of the car to add the up to date front wing. I added as much detail as I was able to. The eyes ain't what the used to be.

Thanks guys!

Hey Ryan, been a while.
I used a metalizer on the front wheels, then tinted some tamiya clear yellow until I got it to look decent. Not a perfect match to the original but, close enough to suit me.

Thanks,
The wing was made from a piece of sheet styrene that was heated and bent around a round dowel for the curvature. The end plates were used from the MCG t/f wing PE set.
Here are a few pictures that may help,
