  1. Thanks guys, just ordered some Hobby Designs stuff. tb
  2. I am pretty sure this has been asked before, but I cannot find it on the forum. Does anyone resin cast a good turbo and/or Pro Charger. Looking for both, for 2 different projects Thanks Terry
  3. They were called Stardust because the Las Vegas casino by that name was a sponsor of his. It is pretty interesting, his mom and dad were bookies in Chicago and had connections with the casino. This article does not mention it but I read that one of his clients owed him money and that is how he became a partner in the battery charger business https://www.autoweek.com/racing/nhra/a2147006/racing-legend-don-schumacher-still-driven-dominate-improve-nhra/
  4. They also have a website with lots of other resins. Here is their page with the 4 door Maverick. Purchased the Colt a couple of months ago, for future project. http://stores.smhracing.com/smh-resins/?sort=featured&page=11
  5. Does this count earlier this year at Gateway
  6. Probably belongs somewhere else, but here goes A explainations of different Pro Mod chassis's, sorry I can find it only on facebook from Jerry Bickels's shop https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2376928828985041
  7. Bottom pic is the FIA Championship for Makes entry, the model kit depicts the American SCCA Can-Am entry. Here is some more info. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howmet_TX Chuck Haines (sort of my boss) does not own either car anymore
  8. What is the due date on this kit.?
  9. Always thought they should have done the Chip Woodali driven Gene Snow Snowman. Woodali won (edit)Springnationals with car. In an interview Chip said Revell wanted Snow to have a dragster but Snow really did not want it. I got damaged in a trailer accident and was not rebuilt. Pic from Hot Rod Magazine 1972. Anyone want to do decals I will buy a set (hint)
  10. Their is no way I am paying 2.5 million for a model kit LOL
  11. one of the iterations of this car had a four rotor Wankel in it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Aerovette Where do you find a 1/25 scale rotary
  12. If they did that I would buy a dozen of them
  13. As per the link that Daddyfink posted the Dennis Priddle Mr. Revell from England
  14. Actually it was worse than just a trailer fire. It was a shop fire and lost race cars, trailer, toter home and equipment inside shop. It happened last October. And you are correct he is not rebuilding the dragsters. He does have a wheelstander that he says he is going to run on a limited schedule. John the mock up looks awesome, can't wait to see the next installment of your build
  15. good call yes their is http://stores.smhracing.com/78-magnum-nascar/
  16. Looked around a little bit but did not find. Does anyone make a 75-76 Dodge Charger Funny car body in 24/25 scale. Like the one TV Tommy Ivo had with the Rod Shop or the Mr. Norms Funny car. Their were several more I dont do pictures any more, so here is a link http://www.speedhunters.com/2017/03/wally-parks-nhra-motorsport-museum/#_presentation-316490
  17. Mark Twain Hobbies has some http://www.hobby1.com/1-25-1965-Plymouth-Satellite-Golden-Commandos-Model-Kit.html
  18. I am still buying one LOL, it will go with the Hot Wheel that was produced
  19. Same as the Snake Wedge, Not a real car, Mongoose never had a wedge
  20. Didn't one of the kits have a box art of the 68/69 Hemi Under Glass but inside was the 65 car. If I remember that correctly
  21. No specific car, was reading an article from 1975 about all the different combinations for Pro Comp that year. And a dual engine injected on gas or alcohol caught my attention. Something different with a Donovan sounded cool. Also thinking about insted of two 417's going with a small block and a Hemi like the Odd Couple gas dragster I mostly build "what If" kind of models
  22. Thanks did not even think of that, just looked at the box in my stash
  23. Does anyone make a Donovan 417 in 25th scale. found lots of 16th scale suppliers. Thinking of doing a pro comp car from the 70's
