    I've never seen that before....WTH??? That's some krazy sheet right there... -RRR

    Perfect. As we talked about, you do need to re-arch those rear wheel wells. Keep on plugging away at it. You might get this done by the end of the century at this rate!!!  -RRR

    Slow going down here as well... Attention turns to the front end now. I have been massaging the front rails (fortunately this grey plastic AMT uses is pretty pliable) to get them unkinked in order to figure where to put the front xmember.... a skim coat of squadron green to smooth out the inside of the rails...I cut out a paper pattern for the hood sides...quick mockup... -RRR

    Hopefully Ed Sexton with Revell will be at the Atlanta NNL on November 4th and we can ask him then (and get an answer?). -RRR

    Notice that the original Parts Pack has the block hugger headers while the later versions have the zoomie style headers to accommodate the use of this mill with the Mooneyes dragster parts pack....

    Yeah, I know, I'm not 100% sold on the grille shell yet either, I have some ideas for a mod or two that might make it look a little better. I also plan to add '36 headlights down low on each side that will interrupt the "knight's helmet" look a bit. Here's a shot of the recessed firewall and trans/driveshaft tunnel. It all snugs together better than the pic would indicate....

    FWIW- Original packaging looked like this... -RRR

    Yes it is the Wynnsjammer chassis. It still has the rubber blower belt, crankcase, clear oil pan, blower blades (although you can't see them when the blower is assembled). It's one of my all time favorite engines and kits, I have a stockpile of parts. You can still find the Wymmjammer at online auction sites for sale. The frame is showing it's age now, the mold seems to be pretty worn out...the kit has recently been reissued as the Top Fuel HemiSphere dragster, (AMT #38483) the clear parts now molded in white. The display base is still in the kit, obviously the Garlits decals are not... -RRR

    Working on the grille shell some more today...not sure if I like it or not... -RRR

    I haven't posted up progress pix on this one for a long time. Progress has been slow, motivation has been slight. I decided to use the AMT '33 five window coupe frame. I cut out all of the floorboards, cleaned it up, bobbed the rear rails and kicked them up. I added a tranny/driveshaft tunnel to the interior tub. Rear axle housing has been fabbed up, will be using a QC rear end with a Model T spring and a Model A spring perch. Last night I started '36ing the '33 hood... -RRR

    Second area LHS to close down this year
    What's wrong with people that they won't support local businesses? I walked in to one of the only remaining hobby shop in the area (I live in a metropolitan with over 6 million people!!) and was immediately struck by bright orange SALE stickers on nearly everything in the store. Sure enough, I went up to the cashier (with my purchase) and she confirmed it. Going out of biz end of the month....jeez...an area of this size can't/won't support a full line hobby shop??? C'mon people... -RRR
