Stephen.......I got the wheels awhile back from GMP die cast..........I had purchased all the 1/18 scale scale dragsters........we had a Earthquake here in Cal. a few years ago.......and some of my die cast fell from my shelfs and some wheels got damaged......so I asked them to replace them for me........they gave me a few extra sets.......I am using them on these builds.........I will make them re-movable so that I can use them on future builds ........I thought the wheels that come with the Revell kits look to cheesy.........I think these will look better.........thanks.

Hello.......thank you all for the following these two builds and for the kind comments........I finished these builds and have posted finished pictures in the "UndrerGlass" section.

 

                 

 

                               APRIL FOOLS   APRIL FOOLS   APRIL FOOLS

 

I bought and built these two 1/25 Monogram original kits in the original boxes about 6 years ago off Ebay.......they both had a few parts missing........even though  not very many parts in a sealed kit.......I doctored them up a little using parts from parts box........I am glad that I pulled out these builds for pictures......I noticed that they both have a push bar and a wheelie bar........ that I will add on these 1/16 builds........I will have progress photos tomorrow........happy April Fools day..........thanks for looking.

John... It's totally cool that you build these in 1/25th scale. When you are don't with the 1/16th scale one you will have to take pics of them with the 1/25th scale guys. I sure cant wait to see more progress on these guys.

John, nice work on the steering/throttle linkage arms/ends, such a small part but when you add the depth of detail that you do it really makes them come alive. Love those 1/25 builds also!!!

Great work John... Those chassis look great in paint. Nice work. The rims look killer too. Keep up the great work.

I forgot to mention how good the tires look too. I know it's not easy to sand these rubber tires down that perfect. You knocked them out of the park.
