Don Garlits Swamp Rat VI

Recommended Posts

This is the Don Garlits' Swamp Rat VI from 1964. It's the old AMT 1/24 kit with the body moulded in clear plastic, painted with Tamiya Gloss Black spraypaint. I added some basic fuel lines and wiring to the otherwise stock kit.

Very cool. Big's diggers always looked so sinister. Nice build.

Nice build, this is one of my favorite kits of all time (mostly as a parts kit)...if you ever get the chance to go to Garlits' Museum of Drag racing in Ocala (only an hour  drive north of Orlando), do it. I lived in Napier, on Harold Holt Ave. in the mid '70s, lovely place. -RRR
