Chuck is providing us with some great high quality decals of drag cars with art previously not available. We should have a thread showcasing models built using his decals. I'll start:

Don Prudhomme Snake III Cuda
The body is an old Good Stuff resin casting complete with fender bumps and spoiler extensions. It hasn't been available for many years, but Competition Resins recently started making a Cuda with fender bumps if you don't want to add bumps to your SMBC or Speed City body. I mounted this to a 1320 Inc diecast chassis/tin.

Both cars look great Jeff, I remember seeing pics of Don's "Black" 'Cuda from the Last Drag Race.

For those building the Snake & Mongoose Carefree dragsters, I just made the unfortunate discovery that the original box artwork for both is wrong. The Monogram boxes show the names leaning forward, but they should be leaning backward.




Guess I'll throw it away then.....
