Ive been a member of this forum for quite a while. Finally got a decent camera. I built Dragula pretty much from what was in the kit. It's painted with Model master and Krylon paints with 2part automotive clear. I used MAS photo etch front wheels/tires, the rear slicks are from Competition Resin. I didnt like the kit's exhaust so I made custom pipes from 3/32 aluminum tubing and polished them. Thanks for looking.

Thats very well done. Nothing brings a kit with plastic wire wheels to life more than substituting them with p/e or hand laced wires.

Thanks for all the comments. Bruce I put a piece of 1/16 aluminum rod where the bends are to keep from collapsing.
