Another epic build brother. I loved watching this one come together. Seems like it took two weeks. I don't know how you do it even with minions.

What's up next? I want to get a front row seat.

Every build is everything we've come to expect John, and then you always top each build.

I'm buckling up for the next one. Something tells me that's a good idea.

I swear John (not at you of course) that is so sweet.  I love those latest pics showing the overhead with the canopy open.  The paint is just stunning.  keeps one humble when you see what others can do.  You're some talent John.  cheers, tim

I've been involved in this hobby since the sixties and I must say that this is one of the most beautiful model cars I have ever seen. This thing should be on the cover of the magazine. This is truly a piece of art. Great work !

Johnny Boy... You continue to amaze us with your skills. To sit there and add a 5 point harness after the build was pretty much done is amazing my friend. This thing is looking Bad A$$ my friend!!!! Nice work on the belts....

Again, this is an amazing model. I have been wondering if anyone knows if this car ever looked like the MPC box art, i.e., with the blower on top of the motor, and no wheel fairings. From what I've read , this car only ran a few times and was unsuccessful. All the photos I have seen of this car have the blower in front . Maybe the MPC people thought it looked better that way. Regardless, this is a beautiful model of a beautiful dragster.

Speaking of the car being unsuccessful, I've always been blown away by the angle of exhaust discharge.  I'm no engineer by any stretch, but I'd think the exhaust pointing almost straight down would make the car want to lift.  Looks like something Jethro Bodine would come up with.  Maybe I'm just off and missing the point..... :huh:
