Nice work! I NEED to build one.......Dad was Valvoline Racing director 1960-70 in So Cal. Tommy was their big name at the time.....plus Mom liked him as he was a TV star too!!! (who else knew that!) Tommy gave me a factory built Showboat.....but it did not survive my childhood!

Very nice job Steve on a very difficult kit to build!!!! I have an unbuilt original release with TV Tommy's autograph on the top of the box - that's a keeper but I must pick one up to build. I have the 1/18th scale GMP diecast to help me with the build/plumbing/etc. I still see this kit on the shelves in hobby stores and at shows so it was out not too long ago and may still be in the Revell catelog.
Since the chassis was from Chassis Research I was thinking of using the chassis from the new Monogram Slingster kit to build the twin-engined version that came before he added the second pair of engines and front wheel drive. I also have that 1/18th scale GMP diecast and it sits right above my build table along with the showboat.

Hey thanks you guys! My kit was from '95, as far as I know that was the latest release.
