I had bit problems with the painting, but after one wetsanding and repaint, I was happy about the paint job. Now I put the decals on, and it looks pretty good. Then clearcoat, and polishing.

Thank You! :D

Little more progress with this one too. I'm planning to finish this today also, there are pretty much things to do, but at least I'm gonna try. BUT if I can't make it, I'm not going to rush the finish on this one.

Body and Belly Pan have been polished. I'm really happy about how they turned out. The chassis is pretty much done exept few little parts and some important details.

Gettin' There! These are the final WIP pictures of the Dragster, it's close of being completed. Glued the body and some other parts too. I had a bit fit issues with the body, but I managed to make it fit somehow. It should be done in few hours. B)

Thanks Ken! Luck is needed there, so I don't break anything while driving to Lahti. :lol:

It's FINISHED too. I'll post pictures tomorrow after that Show. I'll tell you more information and final thoughts about this tomorrow, now I must get some sleep. ;)

Thanks John And Chris! :)

The First build of Double Dragster kit is completed. Next one will be the Fiat Topolino Altered. Anyway, I had little problems with the final assembly. Body didn't fit well, it was too high all the time. Because of that I had to sand some material off from the "Dashboard" and frame parts to get the body fit. Now it fits Okay. Otherwise I had no problems, very fun build over all.
