thanks Jeffrey :) , seems to be taking forever to get anything done, but have made a little progress. Couldn't find a later model ford race engine so I built a bbc for it

then remembered I had 2 Glidden thunderbird pro stock kits

got to wire and plumb it up for nitrous now. Had to modify the chassis a little to fit the wheelbase (the middle one)

Thanks guys, Finally got the chassis painted, went orange as I didn't like it white so much. Don't you love how mockups everything seems to fit ok but as soon as you go to glue it together nothing fits anymore :wacko:

Love the car Brett. I've always liked that flat finned style. I know what you mean about after mockup things not fitting the same. Expecially after painting.

First off thanks guys, and to answer your question Dave, no. Dont know how much longer mums going to be around so have her as my first priority so apart from a quick box stock Revell merc and a little work on the funnycar decals I havent seen much bench time at all. Been buying though :) (see what did you get thread)
