MPC Young American

Here's my 4th build for the year
The re-release of a classic kit MPC Young American dragster, a bit of work to make it look good, I still have to stratch build the steering linkage as the kit one is total ###### man, but that's all the fun man lol. Sure was great to have this groovy kit back. This is my first attempt at doing wire plugs too which this kit needed haha

Nice looking build, these were and still are pretty nice kits. Thanks to Round 2 for this reissue.
Keep up the great work Tye.
I guess I need to get started on mine now.
Happy modeling, Vernon

Nice build! Just too bad that MPC had some of the worst HEMI engines around!

Very nice job indeed. I've already picked up a few of these to do this car and others. I need to get started on one as it looks like it builds up nicely.

That's really cool Tye! Nice paint job dude! I love this dragster and it does my heart good to see one built! Great pictures too.
I was really happy to see this one come back...yay! I picked up a couple myself now that they're affordable.
In my opinion, the long F/E dragsters were the pinnacle of drag racing. They pretty much lost their character once the engine was moved to the rear. I understand why they did it....but.......blah....
