In 1967, at 12 years of age, I split a Revell "Sanitary T bucket/Mooneyes Dragster" double kit with a friend because we neither had enough money to buy the kit on our own. After losing the coin flip (I REALLY wanted to build the Sanitary T bucket!) I built the Mooneyes dragster. However, when I had completed the dragster, I was really proud of it, because it was one of the first and certainly the most difficult kit I had ever completed without my Dad helping me. Fast forward 55 years and like many you, I purchased the Atlantis re-release of the Mooneyes. Many of you have done an absolutely amazing job of building and detailing this kit, and it builds up in to a classic rendition of an iconic 60's dragster. THAT was not my approach. I looked at my 55 yr. old survivor Mooneyes, which has managed to live through 6 moves and countless cleanings, and decided to limit the detailing to paint and assemble the kit much as I would have 55 years ago. The results are oil the pictures.
I hope you enjoy the pictures of my survivor Mooneyes and the new one. Thanks for looking and comments are always welcome!
