    300+MPH Mosler

    All those horses and all it can run is a 9 second quarter?
  8. A lot of the cars I've looked at for research seem to collect it on the front too. Not sure how - surely it doesnt get moved until they roll over it with the front wheels, but it's there!
  9. That's kinda of what I thought Harry - maybe a little on the underside like you say, but there's absolutely no detail under there whatsoever so that's going to be as dark and hidden away as possible. Good to see that some agrees with my assumptions anyway
  10. I'm building this ting at the minute, and I wanna give it a bit of weathering, like it's been on the salt: Thing is, I cant work out where this thing would actually get 'salty'. I'm guessing behind the wheels makes sense, but they're all covered over, so that wont add a lot to it. Would it get salt up the sides too? Anyone got any pics of a salt-weathered streamliner, fresh from Bonneville? Need some ideas. Once I've got those ideas, I need to work out what to use - Tamiya flat white acrylic, unthinned, through an airbrush, to give a fine mist perhaps? Help! Also, I'm trying to work out what class this would run in. Any ideas anyone? Gonna post this on a coupla forums to get some ideas...
  11. This is an awesome thread, enjoyed reading this. I oughta share all mine up, shame myself into finishing something....
  12. He Terry, is that a little lathe on your bench there? What make is it, if so? Looks cute!
  13. Any way of getting a copy of this mag out to the UK, do you know Tim? I always love reading your articles...
