  1. Double "A" Dale Rail

    Hi all, got a quick update. I got the chassis painted, I have the seat and pedals roughed in. I have the engine painted and back together and ready to put final details on it. Thanks for looking
  2. Another truly fanastic job! Great detail, could swear its the real deal. Can't wait to see it with my own eyes.

    Oh , I also have made my vacuform buck to make the body skins. All i did was glue all the body panels from the Jeb Allen kit together and filled the inner void with bondo. I then do a little bodyshop work making more useful for future builds that may have skins that go all the way back to the rear tires. I should get a good one piece body using .020 polystyrene plastic that i can cut back to the car tin shape.Also I can scribe in panel lines and re section the skins for an exposed cockpit or whatever. thanks for looking.

    Hi All, Got a quick update on what I've been up to. I have the engine and trans roughed out using some stock parts and some resin bits to get to the cars configuration more true. I have the firewall done as well as the top of the roll cage and seat that is vacuum formed so I can bend it and get it in the roll cage . As far as the cock pit controls I'm using best guess cause the reference pics I have don't really show that area real well. Now I'm off to final sanding and fitting to get stuff painted. thanks for looking.
  5. AMT Trojan Horse funny car completed

    Great job and fantastic build! I to ran into the same underwhelment of the AMT kit. I absolutely loved the car so I decided to do a remake for myself. I did the box stock version and what I saw as a truer version which AMT could of saved me the trouble many years ago. Again great job on a tough kit
  6. 75 Charger Funny Car

    How very cool. Oddly enough ,that is going to be my next project car after I get the dale armstrong rail dragster done. If you need ref pics I took a ton of them of the Ivo car that's at the NHRA museum. Let me know if you could use some.
  7. Double "A" Dale Rail

    Hi guys, I have a couple of updates, I think I have the rear wing worked out. I used styrene for the uprights cause they have an oval shape to the pole more like modern struts. I used polished stainless steel .032 rod and found some real small aluminum tubing to make the rod ends. I think it looks good for budget concerns. I also have put in a brace for the parachute mount. I have also started the beginnings of the fuel cell which for some reason is located behind the driver seat. Thanks for looking

    So I started with the front axle, I wanted to lower the front to match the car stance a little better and then what the hell and made it position able. The front solid wheels are from an old McEwen build, don't know if I'm going to use them. I also got the rear brass work coming together pinning the plastic chassis to the hollow brass tube.
  9. Double "A" Dale Rail

    Hi all, Now that I have the funny car done I'm diving into the companion alcohol dragster. I'm using bits and pieces from a 1/25 Jeb Allen TF kit. As we all know we can only add as much detail as that can be seen in reference pics we all hunger for. The build will be pretty straight forward and I'm doing brass from the seat back and a working brass front axle. Thanks for looking.
  10. Brutus Mustang funny car

    Very nice, Very very clean!
  11. Shark Corvette F/C

    Absolutely beautiful work! If the photo was in black and white I'd accuse you of just posting a pic of the real car. Nice job again.
  12. Double "A" Dale

    Thanks for all the terrific responses. It really helps me keep going and Fun-E-Car I got the front and rear Cragars from Futurattraction Cragar super trick W-CST1-4S , really nice wheels
  13. Double "A" Dale

    IBorg, In answer to a few questions, I made the decals with Photoshop and an Canon iP7220 inkjet printer with clear film. I painted the back of the car alclad white aluminum, bright candy silver under the stripes and Molotow chrome paint under the Dale area and laid the decals over that and the chassis is modified plastic. The body is right to use for the ALCOHOLIC car , the only mods to it are reducing the front wheel humps and making a roll cage hump in the rear window. Thanks again for the copliments
  14. Double "A" Dale

    Thanks all for the great responses, doggie427 you asked about the blower, I grabbed one out of a Revell late model Top Fuel kit like a ARMY kit or Ken Bernstien Bud King kit. Yes I do plan on posting progress on the rail build as I can remember to do so,I'll do my best. Thanks again!
  15. Double "A" Dale

    Hi All . I haven't posted anything for awhile but I'm back with my latest build. I decided a nice tribute to Dale Armstrong would be one of his rides and the one I liked most is his Satellite Alcohol funny car.I started with what i think was a Gooch resin satellite body then pruned and tweaked it to get that real slammed look and stance of the body. Made a custom chassis and fabricated a new intake manifold,body tin of coarse, and a hand full of loose parts and bits. Made my own inkjet decals and used Molotow liquid chrome for the rims ,pretty cool paint. I also made a custom fuel cell and chassis tins covered with the' tie dye ' anodizing look with decals Ive made. I'm also working on the companion alcohol dragster he ran at the same time
