with the new movie hype about , how could I resist breaking out my Snake and Goose combo, both box stock took about a week to do both alongside a couple other builds

Hi,

They're both really nice!

Wish I had the time and the building speed to pop two models out in two weeks!

Cheers,

Jim

Both look very good! You do very good job in short time, that's always great to see. Especially I like the Cuda FC, the paint and decals turned out very nice.

Both look great Brett, hard to believe you built them in a week!  Wish I could do that, and still have them look this good.  I built the Cuda last year, and still need to bring Mongoose's to the bench.

Nice job on the pair, as I noticed those two cars on the cover of Elapsed Times Magazine the other day. Today I saw that combo kit for sale when I went to a club meeting also.
