I have begun building my boat that will be pulled behind my '57 Chevy Speedster AWD.
The boat hull was sourced from a child's toy I found...($10.99)....it was a plastic Scarab that was very close to 1/25 scale, it was motorized and would do circles when you turned the rudder on the rear. This of course held no significance to me whatsoever.......so I began gutting the boat out......pulled out the motor and wiring and removed the plastic that mounted the motor. I then sectioned out 1 inch off of the height of the hull and cut it down to 8 inches long. (the width of it was fine compared to the '57 thank goodness.) I had to build a new transom for it because of the shortening lengthwise but that wasn't too bad.
Ok, so here is the plan.....
-The powerplant and the prop drive (transfer case) for this build was donated to me by vintagedragcrazy (Vince) who has been a pivotal part of the early stages. BIG thank you to him!!
-The engine will include all the proper details of a Top Fuel engine including: fuel lines and hoses, wiring up BOTH magnetos, and a host of other details.
-I plan on doing a WILD paintscheme on it like most dragboats you would see.
-The trailer will be a scratchbuilt twin axle on custom wheels and tires.
Pics will be later when I get home.....I am not that far along though so bear with me. This is for my NNL build for this coming year so I have plenty of time.
