  1. Old Monogram Midget Kit

    I started work on this almost twenty years ago, moved on to something else, and put it back in the closet. Last night, I decided to get it out and take some better photos of it. It began as Monogram's old off-scale Midget kit. Inspired by the old Belanger Special Indy car, I cut it apart and lengthened it, to better represent one of the "big cars". I am considering finishing it up, as I don't think it would require too much time (relatively speaking) to do so. The radiator is completely scratchbuilt. The firewall, hood and seat support are aluminum sheet. Evergreen styrene tube and half-round were used to represent the chassis tubing. The dash has photo-reduced gauges, is covered with "tooling aluminum" found at a crafts store, with bezels (one of which has detached and departed) made from aluminum tubing. Most of it is from the kit, with some modifications and/or enhancements. I've said before that I love these old Monogram kits! I've also been told that I do much more work on them, than they deserve! For me, they capture a real sense of Americana and nostalgia, and, given some attention, they look pretty cool, sitting in the display case. Comments and questions welcome. Thanks for having a look!

  3. I've had this previously-built 4-Banger Dragster for a few years now, but the OHC-converted B motor was pretty severely glue-damaged. The "Offy" from a Monogram Indy Roadster gave me the impetus to pull it back out, and scavenge through a Monogram Slingster Dragster for front wheels and a few other details. Since then, I've changed gears again - ordered an Offy 270 from American Racing Miniatures - hope to have more progress soon.
