Great in-depth info on this famous historic machine.

Seems to me you may know more about this kind of project than you're letting on Mr. Himmel, LOL!

I have pushed this recreation around a few times! Ray Lake is a good guy!

Thanks, Bernard! I didn't post any photos of mine, since I figured everyone had seen it, by now. And, the article shows just how flawed mine is (although, I am still happy with it). I think I could only find one or two color shots, when I was building mine, and, I chose the wrong color!grin Jesse, you're up! Jack Smith likely still has the artwork to do the decals, if he doesn't have some already done.

I need to get those decals and build one for Ray! I know I have at least one kit somewhere around here! ;)

Do you have Jack's contact info? I do, if you need it.

Looks like you could get pretty close to Sidney Allard's first dragster as well.

I don't know if you do FB, but, Jack took his website down a while back. He has some sheets ready to go. Top End Decals on Facebook, is where to find them. If you don't FB, I'll see if I can get an email address for you.

Allard's digger does resemble one variation of the Cook and Bedwell car, for sure! The Slingshot's rollbar is different, obviously. That would be a cool project!
