Hello all

I picked up the Slingster kit from my LHS and have started the build up of the Competition coupe version.I modified the stock wheels to accept the AMT parts pack MH racemaster dragster slicks and radius-ed the wheel  openings to suit the larger diameter tire.The body has been painted with blue metal flake nail polish.Hope you like it and thanks for looking.Cheers,

Ron.

The body and wheels are not centered in this pic so they are sticking out more than they really do

Looks great Ron. Those RaceMasters look right at home on there. I have got to get me a few of these.
