I'm sure we are all familiar with Revells' Willys kit by now. This is my take on it.  A straight forward kit that builds up nice and easy.

Nice build on that Willys kit and that's the way they went to the drag strips back in the mid 60's. Either flat-towed or on an open trailer.

NIce job--I like the wheels, and I'm curious how you got that flat magnesium looking finish.  Great model!

The wheels were sprayed with Alclad Magnesium, given a wash with Tamiya smoke enamel then given a coat of Alclad Klear Kote Flat.

That is one really nice model.  I'd be very happy to display that on my shelves.  Are the fuel distribution blocks fabricated or aftermarket...?

I fabricated the block and added some Hobby Design hex fittings
