Very cool. Revell would make a lot of people happy if they reissued that kit. :)

You would think this kit would be high on their list to retool the parts for and reissue it. List $ on the big tub is 106.00 at hobby lobby. I fugure a reissue of the big drag would be in that ball park. I would buy at least two of them. Or they could just repop the 1/8 parts packs for the big drag.

excellent...was that built in the sixties or more recently? very clean looking. and yeah i wish they would reissue this especially since they reissued the big tub of all things! and note that parts pack that has much of what made the big drag does not, from what i recall anyhow, have the center steering setup that was in the big drag kit.
