Hello.......these are replicas of the "Mattel" Twins:  The "Snake" 1 and "Mongoose" 1  FED`s.......I used  J.T.Graphics body resin conversion kits with decals.......thank you to Paul Cadwell AKA as " 2whl " here on the forum for hooking me up with the donor kits: BeBee and Mulligan and Don Prudhomme "Wynns" FED`S.......and of course Charlie at "Pro Tech" for his fine products........if you would like to see how I built these 2 builds you can follow this link to Drag Racing Models.....

John:  These are both incredible models, your work is truly amazing.  It was great to follow both builds on the forum, it's just amazing how quickly you built them.  Hopefully I Will see them next year at the DSC.
