hobbylinc shows this as 'due date unknown' that got changed
from 'late december'
well worth waiting for!
reissue kits go for $40-50 at online OOP hobbystores
hobbylinc shows price as $19.09 when they get them in
this is a DRAG RACING kit!
very cool!

happy holidays!

it's two kits in one
not build either version you get TWO complete dragster
they call one 'roadster' and the other one 'dragster'
this kit is super historical/educational !
and just darn interesting!

Well this is must have kit! Great to see, that it's possible to build two cars from one kit. I can't wait to have it, even if I don't have money right now. Vintage Dragster model kits are always nice to see.

409
these frames look close to Dragmaster's frame
but Tony Nancy's were made by special frame builder
i just caught on that the reissue slick's are the same name Dragmaster
i guess they were a big mailorder place you could get everything to build a dragster
here's pic of one with 348 and your name is 409. small world

Tony Nancy's 22Jr is not a Dragmaster frame nor even close. The 22Jr is a Fuller chassis by Kent Fuller. If you'd like to learn a little about dragster chassis'...click on the link below for some great info prepared by Roger "Riceman" Lee. Riceman is one of the most knowledgable guys you will ever meet or know when it comes to front engined dragsters! He put together quite a little synopsis for us on the Straight Line Modelers List. The chassis we are talking about is the first one at the top of the page. Hope this helps you! ;)

terry
my post says 'close to' and did say special shop
if someone one want's to learn something they can
see the evolution towards longer frames
right in the nancy kit
i would say the buick powered roadster ( top kit ) is earlier
and shorter
the dragmaster is interesting as selling reasonable price dragster stuff then
closest thing we have now is Speedway Motors
you can get enough stuff there for dragster but you
have to scare up your own frame

happy holidays!

I don't know of any "current" kit with a Dragmaster frame. The old Sanitary T and Mooneyes Double Dragster kit had one in the Mooneyes kit. And the old Revell Parts Pack's had a Dragmaster chassis. You can sometimes find them on evilbay... I believe these are the only two sources for the dragmaster chassis. See here.... http://www.straightl...r.org/skip.html

The Revell Attempt 1 kit has a great little dragmaster chassis. Kit can be found on evilbay fairlly reasonable. Most liklly the cheapest way to get one.

I already know that it's a "double kit" Bob and I may pick up one or two more as I already have the kit. Thanks.

Junior. Because of the size of the car. (He was used to the big bodys in Nascar and when he went to drag racing this thing was really small)

The 22 jr. comes from Tony's original 32 Ford roadster ( I think it was a 32 ), that was run in the old NHRA roadster classes.

What does it mean? Others have used it as well,I.E. Richard Petty. It's not a class designation.
