Love it! Love the colors... the white frame, the body color, the red engine block... it all works together really well. Nice job! B)

I found out that this is the same kit as Milner's  AG FED(except the back portion of body is not in this kit). I picked one up at Hobby Lobby yesterday...40% off coupon....score.

Your build comments a little further on in the thread show the care and detail you brought to the build. The color choice is very nice, and things like the rivets on the wing plates and their contrasting color make all the difference. Beautiful work!

Yes this is the same chassis as found in the American Grafitti kit which has two bodies in it, the Milner FED and this Competition Coupe. The Jawbreaker kit was originally the Competition Coupe half of the Milner Kit. Unfortunately the Milner kit has not been re-issued and old copies frequently trade well into 3 figures. Fortunately we have this kit now, and also old copies of the MPC Ramchargers FED kit which is not the FED half of the Milner kit - the bodywork is different without the high back 'chute pack of the Milner car. The chassis hits the aesthetic sweet spot of the mid-60's with its approx. 155 scale inch wheelbase and its dramatic stance is due to the fact that it is fairly unique in scale in being a "legs under" design with the driver's legs positioned under the rear axle.

Love it! Love the colors... the white frame, the body color, the red engine block... it all works together really well. Nice job! B)

Is it cool to post drag cars in Under Glass now? They do tend to get lost in Drag Racing Models where W.I.P.'s and completions are in the same thread. Many members only look Under Glass for completions unless they have a highly specific interest (Drags, NASCAR, Big Rigs, Slots, etc.).

Love the look of this build, imitation is the best form of flattery right?  

I cant wait to build this in a similar way.

I've seen a couple builds of this kit that really sparked my interest. Your's does the same. Awesome color choice, nice build. I'm gonna have to do this one someday.
