  1. Now...a couple of observations from the trip to the Garlics museum and seeing this car in person: 1.) The front of the "wedge" is ABOUT the same width as the front wheels spacing. 2.) The headers on the car in the museum come out from under the bodywork, although the CarCraft article has them coming out of the bodywork. I do have about four or five other pictures I can post if anyone needs them. I'm not sure if they'll help anyone or not, but willing to share.
  2. Okay...I'm going to see if I can make this work.
  3. I went to the Garlits museum Ocala, Florida in February of this year, and have several pictures of the Prudhomme wedge dragster (supposedly the original) in the museum that I can post IF someone can help me with posting the pictures since Photobucket has decided to be the south end of Northbound horses.
  4. Okay guys, why can I not see the pictures? All I can see is an image that says "Please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting" and then "for important info please go to www.photobucket.com/p500"
  5. I was (and still am!) a HUGE drag racing fan and I was particularly fond of Don Prudhomme and Tom McEwen. I have tried to build many of their late 60's and 70's cars and over the last 6 weeks I've built the recent releases by MPC. No, they are not super detailed, and they may vary from the actual cars in some details, but they were fun to build and look pretty good! I hope you like them!
  6. As always, just AMAZING work. I have said it before but this car has made the transition from "just" a model car to a work of art. Your skills are incredible!! Steve
  7. This has become so much more than a model...it has become a work of art! Incredible, amazing work. Great job!!
  8. Amazing, outstanding and any other superlative you can come up with. Great work!!!
  9. Beautiful, amazing, awesome. Plus every other positive adjective out there. Nice work!!
  10. Fantastic work! And on a side note: should I be scared that I understand most of what Mr. John Teresi posted?
  11. Well done. Great looking model. The Candies and Hughes cars were always fast AND beautiful!
  12. A beautiful car that you are doing amazing work replicating. Your work is not model building...it is artistry!!
  13. This is basically an OoB of the MPC Soupy Sales Challenger. The one thing I did is I fabricated new front axle mounts that moved the front axle about 0.100" further forward. I built the Model King Challenger kit and knew the wheelbase was off, so I made the change as I was building this time. Body is painted with Tamiya white, frame with Tamiya Metallic Blue.
