  1. I noticed you got rid of the mold seams on the front and rear bumpers. Did you use Little Motor Kar Co. to redo the replating as well as the wheel rims?
  2. THAT is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I first thought the model was a pic of the real thing!
  3. WELL DONE! As a fanatical Stock Eliminator fan, I`m glad to see modelers paying attention to this race car category. A lot of people don`t understand how complicated and sophisticated these cars actually are. Most people think it`s nothing more than "bracket racing". I can assure you it`s not! Check it out at the next NHRA race that you attend. Sorry for the rant, I love your model!
  4. Keep going. I like It! So is this car of the type that was raced in the Can Am series? I don`t know that much about sports car racing.
  5. On the "Rocket 88" tune, if you listen REAL close to the electric guitar on the track, you`ll hear one of the first instances of distorted guitar if not the first ever recorded.
  6. I agree with Mark but at least you showed us how to do it right!
  7. I noticed it`s a non-altered wheelbase car. Is that a 1/24th scale model? Oh and more pics please.
  8. To add to the engine color thing, I just pulled up a pic of his 1963 Z-11 car and even back then he painted his engines black so yes I believe yours would be black also. Love your models by the way.
  9. Thanks for this. The Photo bucket images are fuzzy but I get the gist of the method.
  10. Never tried to drill holes in a distributor or anything else using micro bits. I`d like to know your techniques. I do have a pin vise if that helps. Also, sorry if this has been covered elsewhere already. I haven`t checked.
  11. I ignore the "Pro Stock" category like I ignore modern NASCAR. To me Pro Stock has run it`s course as the cars bear absolutely no resemblance to the cars they are supposed to represent. I agree with the previous comment that " Factory Stock" and "Factory Super Stock" are far more interesting. I guess I`m biased because "class racing" is my thing. If you want to see innovation in NHRA drag racing, check out Comp Eliminator. That category is filled with it. Everything from 4 cylinder Honda powered altereds to nostalgia front motor dragsters! I might also step on a few toes by saying that "delay box" racing does nothing for me either. Just my opinion...
  12. If you are looking for a rule book earlier than 1958 don`t. There isn`t one. I have original 1955 "Operation Drag strip" and "How to form a car club" pamphlets and these are about as good as it gets. For most 50`s drag cars of the period, the 1958 rule book will suffice. I got these from a very knowledgable collector.
  13. Never thought to much about this kit until I saw yours. WELL DONE! I like it.
  14. From what I`ve read, your model qualify`s as a 2% car. A true "grand father" of the funny car as we now it. Keep going, I like it!
  15. I`ve just finished some reading on the Ramchargers version of this car. I assume this is a " 2% " car yes?
  16. Would make an excellent NHRA Stock Eliminator car!
  17. Watching this one with much interest! As a side note, those building salt flats/dry lakes cars might want to consider purchasing a SCTA rule book. It has tons of info on different classes and of course, rules. Starting on a VGC (viintage gas coupe) myself.
  18. Start `er up and pull into the beams! Absolutely STUNNING work! Thanks for sharing!
  19. Looks like General Lewis Armistead with sword through his hat. Cool!
  20. VERY VERY FINE WORK! Thanks to all who serve!
