Yeah no worries Buddy...  I was just curious...  Model looks great. Looking forward to you finishing it and a good photo to put up on the header picture for the Straight Line Modeler FB Group!

Brett...couple of questions....  Is that fuel tank the one that came with the kit?  And..do you have a photo of Brutus with a battery in it? I'm curious because I have never seen a Funny Car with a battery in it. As far as I know they were all started with a mechanical starter off the blower drive.  I searched and couldn't find anything showing a battery so I was just curious if you had located a pic showing a battery? Not criticizing here at all...just genuinely curious!   All the ones I found were like this one showing no battery and quite a differently shaped fuel tank....

You can build anything you wish. Doesn't even have to be a car model if you want to do something else.

In Topic: Correct Wrinkle Wall Slicks at Rest Vs. Under Torque?

05 January 2014 - 01:48 PM

Wrinkle wall slicks *at rest* display a wrinkle running in both directions..unless they've been aired up in pressure for display purposes. ONLY when under hard launch will a wrinkle wall slick exhibit the standard one-way wrinkling that is so prevalent ... and wrong ...  in most model kit tires.  Here are but two examples of a wrinkle wall slick at rest.
