      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  1. Drag Racing Garage Diorama Built

    Hey guys...thanks so much for your encouraging responses. Much appreciated. As for the skeleton...well that's a diet program gone wrong.
  2. Drag Racing Garage Diorama Built

    Hmmm...that's a good question....as I said I've been holding on to stuff for years...so I'm not exactly sure. I want to say they came from the AMT Engine packs. I KNOW that's where the cam shafts and crackshafts came from...so I'm just taking a stab at it because they were already in my loose parts drawer and painted...so that's the best I can do. Sorry.
  3. Greetings Once Again, Just thought I'd show off one of my most recent projects...a drag racing garage diorama. As the announcer at the local drag strip (MIssion Raceway) it's always been on my list to build this thing. I've hung on to parts, pieces, kits and so forth for decades just waiting to get this done. Well it's done now...I'm no pro-builder but I sure had a lot of fun putting it together. All comments are welcome. Take care, Jerry
  4. Greetings, Everyone here has been so helpful with my other posts I hope you can shed a little light on my building dilemma. I was about to build the Tom 'The Mongoose' McEwen Rail Dragster but noticed it's 1/24...while all my other cars are 1/25. When I compare the unbuilt parts the chassis looks thicker, the tires are certainly too large...and even the wing seems larger. Am I just imagining this...or will a 1/24 scale car be noticeably larger sitting next to a 1?25 scale car? Input please. Thanks in advance.
  5. Greetings, I may have asked this question some time back, but I'm asking it again. Is there ANYONE out there who makes decals for the front engine Smirnoff Dragster? I have the Altered States resin body and would love to get building, but really some or all of the decals to make it work. Let me know. Cheers
  6. Thanks guys, Hakan, I appreciate the tip about the parts Box in Australia...I placed an order and while it took a while to get to Canada...they are great folks with some really nice resin pieces. Besides the front wings I picked some new TF fuel pumps and puke tanks and a few other bits and pieces. As I said...great folks I recommend them. Thanks again for the tip. Now I need to find someone who makes a DSR Top Fuel canopy. Any tips?
  7. Greetings...just wondering if there are some out there who might be able to point me in the right direction...Over the years I've collected lots of bits a pieces for a drag racing diorama/garage that I'd like to put together...anyone know of a simple open garage style diorama on the market that I could easily adapt to a garage housing some drag cars? I'd like it to work with a wide variety of rail cars. I'm all ears.
  8. Hey guys Thanks for the tips...great photos of the frame rails...that will take some time...but also great tip on The Parts Box...I've been in touch with them already. Not only do they have the front T/F wing...they also have resin zoomie headers! I've been looking for those for ages. Really appreciate the help.
  9. Greetings, I hope someone out there can help me. I build drag cars and I'm wanting to add to my Top Fuel dragster collection, but none of the kits have the correct front wing assembly. I'm referring to the current set up that has the wide one-piece front wing sitting out front of the wheeIs. Is there anyone in the after-market that makes this? That would be the easiest. Barring that has anyone out there made this set-up from scratch? I appreciate any help that can be provided. Cheers
  10. Greetings, Just finished a couple kits (Miss Deal customized and Polar Lights Gas Ronda funny) and it would have been helpful to pre-fit some pieces...I notice that some of you pros put together the whole kit to test fit everything. You must be using a special kind of glue that allows you to take it apart cleanly. What's the best way to go about that? What kind og glue works best? What kind of care will I need to take? Your help is much appreciated.

    I am not worthy! Wow...That's just fantatsic...I look at the work you guys do...and it's hard not to get a little discouraged...fantastic stuff. I hope to learn a bunch reading about the build-up.
  12. Thanks John, What a great site...I'll have to see if I have anything they need. Thanks again.
  13. Greetings, Does anyone out there have the kit instructions for the L.A. Dart you could send me in a pdf file? I have the Hemi Hunter kit and want to build it up as the wheelstander. Got the decals, but I need to see what the instructions say. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. While I'm working on my next project I thought I'd share something I started a few years ago...but only recently completed with the proper Slixx decals. This of course is Gene Snow's Rambunctious funny car built from the Jo-Han Challenger F/C kit. I wired and plumbed the cars fuel lines but it was a while back so it's a bit rough. The car was painted with a gold base and candy red. What do you think? Oh yes...this is also the first time I'm using Photobuckit so hopefully the photos are large enough. Cheers!
  15. Love those 60's Dragsters!

    Hey Guys, Thanks for all the compliments...it's very encouraging. By the way perhaps you can show me how I can load larger pictures without using all of my alloted storage space? Tips please.
