    Did Revell ever announce the chosen kits?
    Seems to be taking a long time to choose the two wrong kits.

    It may be your first effort at a belly tanker, but it is a great job.

    Rear engined funny cars are illegal in the NHRA. There wasn't a rule prohibiting them until about twenty years when some guy named Force was talking about building one.

    How about looking at the most popular JoHan subjects. I wonder how much from the F100 could transfer to a stock Maverick?

    The lesser known ones got me to.

    Glad you took it the intended way. Was worried I'd offend.
    For a quick quiz, identify the makes of these four cars:
    If you had to look for the grill decals, that points to one of NHRA's failings.


    The answers are: Mopar Charger, Camaro, Toyota, Mustang and Mustang.

    I liked the Pro Mod......I love the funny car. Not totally accurate. I can actually look at this car and recognize it as a Mustang unlike the actual Mustang funny cars.
    I do wish current funny cars looked more like this than the slab thingies that are now being run.

    Looks good!
    I've often thought of doing the same thing but use the Revell/Monogram flat head midget for chassis and running gear.

    Glad to see this back on track.
    Having built a few brass frames, a few additional thoughts:
    Shiny brass solders better than dull brass. I like to steel wool joints to polish them.The closer the fit of the brass the better.A smaller tip allows better control than a wide tipAlligator clips make great heat sinks to prevent the spread of heat causing other joints to fail. 
    Now a few questions......
    Where did you get the tubing bender? How wide of a range of diameters as well as bend radius can it handle? 
    I need to replace my soldering gun. Any recommendations on an adjustable, variable temperature gun?

    The Ormsby car always saddens me. Gary wont the championship in 1989 in a classic battle with Garlits. Gary died of cancer just prior to the Nationals in 1991. He was one of the last innovators in drag racing.

    Grand National was Nascars old name for what is now the Xfinity series (was Nationwide) when it was the Busch Grand Nationl Series. The other thing is the Cup cars where sponsored by Winston. Curios you could sell a beer sponsored car but not a cigarette sponsored series. It also appears the paintings themselves appear differently. My guess is the artwork was done in a reflective media such as watercolors or even oil and then photographed twice at slightly different angles. The cars appear identical as does the track but at slightly different angles, which is why I believe this. I have no guess why Elliot's picture is different.

    My ABSOLUTE favorite early Ford. Show car, rat rod, dragster, Bonneville car. So many ways to use that body.

    I can't understand why this is the forgotten Ford.

    Looks like a 1:1. EXCELLENT!

    That's the first Kool-Aid car I've seen built. If those are the kit decals, I'll have to watch for it.

    I kinda would like the Ferrari.......
