Interesting for sure. LEGO makes a pilot (cow catcher) that might be a better choice.....smaller than the General pilot. Check Brick Owl or ebay for it alone. (so you don't have to buy a set)

Man, I wasn't sure about the stance when I was studying the first picture. Things look mighty nice in the rest of them though. Looking spot on.

Just heard the other day that K.C. Jones lost both of those cars to a trailer fire and will most likely retire. He always put on a great show.:(

John, another great one on the bench. I'm sure you have a jet engine in mind, but just in case I've got a couple of these laying around I could send you. Let me know. I can't wait to see how this one turns out.

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

It's coming together great. You've got great vision as it's evolved so much from your initial mock-up.
It's always exciting to see where your next update takes us.
