    I ordered the decals for this car and for the Brutus GTO from Lucas and got them in about a week and a half. I have not used them yet , so I can't comment on the quality, but they look pretty good. My only complaint is that the gold lettering is just plain gold and not simulated gold leaf .

    I always loved this car. There were several rear engine funny cars, but Dunn's was the only one that ever won a national event. Here are a couple of pics fom my files. One with the body off and one with different graphics. Great job on the build !

    Absolutely beautiful ! Outstanding work !  I plan to build a 1/24 scale version in the future . I could never ask for better reference than these photos .

    Again, this is an amazing model. I have been wondering if anyone knows if this car ever looked like the MPC box art, i.e., with the blower on top of the motor, and no wheel fairings. From what I've read , this car only ran a few times and was unsuccessful. All the photos I have seen of this car have the blower in front . Maybe the MPC people thought it looked better that way. Regardless, this is a beautiful model of a beautiful dragster.

    I've been involved in this hobby since the sixties and I must say that this is one of the most beautiful model cars I have ever seen. This thing should be on the cover of the magazine. This is truly a piece of art. Great work !

    Soapy Sales Funny Car
    I haven't been on here for a while, so this may be old news, but I just saw on the Model Roundup site that the Soapy Sales Challenger Funny Car will be rereleased next month ( December )

    Thanks, Mike. I think I talked to you at a couple of shows. You had some great models.

    I finally got these done. I used Liquitex acrylic, Createx, and India ink on these. The bodies on the red and purple ones were airbrushed with Createx sprayed through an Iwata Revolution airbrush. Everything else was done with paint brushes.
