I finished this build awhile back and had a WIP thread in the drag race section. I just got around to taking some decent pics of it. I will say the kit was a big pain in the you know what to finish and fit right. It's not 100% to the real deal car but it was the best I could do with it. I am happy with the way it turned out and what's not to love about a four engine smoke machine dragster?  :lol:

That is one cool build, and I think that I might have that car on 8 MM movies that I took at the drag strip back-in-the-day.

That is definitely not the easiest kit to build. Yours looks terrific.
