Also, a couple of years back I built a simple late 50's style rail job using the chassis from the Polar Lights Undertaker kit and a Revell Parts Pack Cadillac V8 with a brace of 97's on top. The brutal simplicity of these things is a great canvas for your creativity. Have fun, we all will enjoy following along, I'm sure.

Thanks guys for the nice comments. I am not all together happy with it is it kind of looks like I put it together with my feet !
Now that makes me laugh! I'll have to remember it for how I feel about some of my builds...
A couple of thoughts: First off, a personal peeve regarding the front tires that come in the Double Dragster kit. They're the standard AMT's and they're too big, IMHO, for a drag car. See if you can't find something a bit narrower and smaller. It would look better and might help. The other thing is, I noticed early on you committed yourself to a black on black paint scheme. Perhaps it's gone a bit too far and could stand a bit more contrast. How about using some Testors Metalizers in various shades to help pick the details out? Things like the valve covers and supercharger need highlighting, IMHO. Maybe doing the front wheels over in a none-chrome finish. You can find them at your LHS and apply it with a brush with good results.
I still think it's cool and very imaginative. Definitely V. 2.0 You've got me thinking about trying my hand at one...
