    ill be watching!
     i love watching fast freddy run at santa pod when he comes over. He's twin turbo now, and on a test and tune run, he pedalled, wheelied at the eighth and still ran a decent time. His eighth mile burnouts are expected lol

    normally Id say the blown hemi. But a twin turbo dragster is something I'd love to see!

    I'll be watching! Does anyone know if theres a 66 bonneville or catalina available as a model? My Dad has a 66 pontiac ventura, so I need the "full size" pontiac, not the goat to build a model of it.

    this will be a great pair of slingshots.
    I love the bit in the clip above where he gets out in front and theres that animal noise. If you know the films you know that noise! I think its details like that, that make a film.

    Hey, I'm from northamptonshire, but spend most of my time in Bedford right now at uni.

    Thanks for the kind words 
    I've just been put on to hiroboy and had a good look around, I have other websites too, https://www.emodels.co.uk/ the one I got my paints from for this model.
    Paints aren't  the issue as such, I also use citadel paints from games workshop as I paint warhammer as well and companies such as humbrol who cater to airfix and hornby offer weathering and metal effects now, Its getting hold of resin hot rod and drag racing parts that is hard, and the one time I got a kit from the US, customs over here added their bit making it non-cost effective. Perhaps because it was an ebay store purchase.
    I will at some point order a big order. Also getting hold of kits is hard, as its a case of waiting until one (only one) comes up, or making do with whats on offer from websites such as emodels and ebay. I've been on the US ebay and theres loads of awesome stuff!  But first, I have a reasonably sized to-do pile, then I want to binge on muscle cars, just building them OOB, 'cos theyre muscle cars! whilst hoarding hot rod material. Thats the very long term plan lol

    Way ahead of ya! It was done the next day as I finished putting it together and took pics at 11.30pm lol.

    thats a clean build, nice one.

    Thanks guys.
    I find being in England I don't readily have access to the model after-market for all the stuff I'd like,(or i just dont know where to get it) so make use of what is available in the UK This is the first time I've used hobby products, I've used general automotive touch up sprays in the past, but think I'll be using more hobby stuff.
    How do you use nail varnishes, in an airbrush? If so, I don't own one, or know how to use one lol All of my stuff is done with rattle cans.
    Hopefully I can resume this project ASAP, but university comes first right now.
