Yeah Mike , I was underwhelmed with what was out there so I made my own vacu-form buck  that I can put on a dental 4"x4" vacuum form machine and pull .020 black styrene over it and add the ribs on top before painting

Mark.  Unbelievable, gorgeous, inspirational work!   Your blower scoop that you made is tremendous.  The closest after market blower scoop of this variety that I have fond is from Calnaga Castings. If anyone knows of any other, please let us know.

Saw this while watching NHRA, RIP Paul Candies.  This is truly a wicked build, 1984 the year I was born and Mark Oswald is a Cincinnati Native making it even cooler.

Thanks for the great encouragement guys. It's truly a sad day when you hear about another one of the great titans of the sport passing into the book of legendary heroes. RIP Paul Candies

Candies and Hughes always ran very fast cars that were show cars.

Another great build, Mark! Congrats on your top five at the Lower Left coast NNL. It was well-deserved. The IVO FC was sweet.

Where or what did you use for the blower belt,this is about the most realistic I've seen.
Oh great build by the way!!!

Well I finally got er done. Thanks again to Charlie at Pro-Tech for the braided line,all the fittings, plug wire, and chute kit to help make it look right. I used testors true blue pearl with a little transparent magenta to shift the blue towards the cooler purple tone. I also used Slixx decals and separated the Candies from the Hughes to match the car a little better and also sctatchbuilt the rear air foil as well. Thanks Art for the kudos, there were alot of great builds at the LLC NNL and was happy to be there,I didn't think I had a chance. About the blower belt, dragcarz, I made it myself and I'll post a little somethin' in the tips and tutorials topic in the forum pretty soon.

It looks like the actual car......not a show car......not a model.

 

That's the highest compliment I think any model can receive.
