1/25 Revell 90 Mustang Drag Car

Recommended Posts

Haven't built a model in a lot of years, but I recently saw the kit and knew I had to try and replicate my 1:1 drag car, complete with a turbo SBF and an SFI 25.5 cage.  Any comments or constructive criticism welcome.

This looks like an interesting project. I built a 7.50 second roll cage on the same kit by using the kit's original roll bar as a starting point. It wasn't that hard actually, it was pretty fun too. Your 1:1 car looks great so this will be interesting to follow. Where did you get those front tires from?

On the cover of the newest Hot Rod, there is a LS with a set of Hammerhead's SBF Hemi heads on it.

Looks like a nasty little car. I'll be looking forward to watching this build, I eventually want to build a replica of my turbo foxbody as well, this could be good inspiration for it.

not much progress, mini tubs finished, 25.5 cage need to finish door bars. Too busy working on full size stuff.

Sold motor out of 1.1 car, putting a turbo Coyote in it, so I have to start on a Coyote for the model too.
