    Man Tyrone, sweet build! I like how it looks like its about to have a wheels up launch as soon as you punch it.

    Bruce,

    This is a very nice build. I like that you challenged yourself and stepped out of your comfort zone. Do you have any engine pics? Do you plan on doing any more builds of this kit?

    Quick question: are you attaching your doors to the body or to the chassis?

    Simon, if everything falls right (and it should) I'll be there as a spectator. Can't wait to see some of these long term projects up close. Looking forward to it all.

    What magnets did you use for the doors?

    Chris,

    After looking at this update, the question comes to my mind, will this be your method for painting the blue on the body?

    Is that the newer Revell Willys kit?

    George, what car are you wanting to do? There are plenty of resin bodies out there. You should check out Compresins.com to see the bodies they have on offer. Also, check with Slixx for the decals that match the funny car bodies. Hope this helps.

    As I've given up on Revell and it's love affair with "vintage iron" these days, I'm hoping that Tamiya would take a serious look at the Aussie Super V8 series. There are only a few brands on the track but a company like Studio 27 (a Japanese Slixx, if you will) could fill in the gaps with all the available teams that are currently competing these days. I'd buy more than my share from both Tamiya and Studio 27 if they would get around to kitting these cars.

    You say you're running out of time. Are you planning on having it done for the Southern Nationals?

    What happened to Flashpoint Motorsports tires?
    I may be late to this game if it has been discussed before but will FM's 16 th scale tires ever return? Has there been a reason as to why they are "not available"? Can someone enlighten me on this?

    I like the smell of lacquer paints and fingernail polishes and also Testor's tube glue. I like the smell or diferent smells of models while I'm viewing them at a contest too.

    Clay,

    I have to say that along with everyone else I am beyond impressed with your fabrication skills in model building. What gets me about this build is that it seems like we're following along with a build up of a full size car as you're leaving no stone unturned when it comes to detailing. What also impresses me is that your photography makes it seem like you're building a full size race car. Based on what you've done so far, I have no doubt that this is going end up being what I call "GSL Best in Show" worthy. I'll go so far as to say that it could very well end up being an IPMS Nationals "Best in Show" worthy. Keep up the outstanding work. Looking forward to the next update.

  14. Adhsdad added a post in a topic What do you wish was available in large scale kits?   

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned it already but I'd love to see Revell (or anyone for that matter) come out with a new line of current 16 th scale drag cars and ( very wishful thinking with the liscensing issues) Nascar cars annd trucks. My thinking is that all they would have to do is come out with a few cars and then Slixx or someone else would take over in producing many more decals for other cars. I believe that the aftermarket would supply additional funny car bodies and if Nascar cars were being produced, the aftermarket would be ready and waiting for them as well. With many of the fringe modelers getting older, this scale would seem to be a no brainer

    Dave,

    I'd hit up Compresins.com or maybe Scalemodelingbychris.com to see what drag slicks they have on offer. I'm sure between the 2 you'll find what you're looking for.
