Dyno Don's Eliminator II - New Camera - New Photos

Recommended Posts

Finished this one back in April but had trouble getting decent photos with my new camera , since then I've learned a bit so yesterday I decided to try again .  The front end always sat too high so I fixed that too , turns out the injector stacks were too tall and hitting the inner panel . These new photos are much better , hope you like them .

Nice job on one of the first flip tops, this car was nearly unbeatable in it's day!

You got it RIGHT!

Wow, very, VERY nice! I'm hoping to build one of these myself sometime and yours is an inspiration to me. Well done and model on! B)

Wow that is awesome looking! Could you please give some more details on the build? Is that a resin or a modified AMT body?

Thanks Gary !  I used what was on hand so the chassis isn't the correct one but I'm happy with it .

Thanks Noah and Phillip !  I used a stock body from an AMT kit and the chassis/engine/inner panel from the Don Nicholson Cougar Funny Car kit . Everything fit nicely , only had to lengthen the chassis wheelbase an 1/8 inch or so .  This chassis isn't actually correct , I think a better choice would be one of the Polar Light Funny Car kits .

Here's a link to the WIP .

Looks killer.

 

Ive been wanting to build this car myself. 

Never thought about using thw cougar chassis and stock amt body.

You given me an idea i cant get out of my head . Ive no real interest to build a stock comet. And have a bunch of amt cougar funnycar kits i can use for chassis .

 

Did you use the cougar int tins ?

Thanks Bill !  I now know that the Cougar chassis isn't actually correct but it' so close and readily available .  Only thing I don't like is the rear wheels , they look like they're held on with a big screw and flat washer !

The interior tin fit right into the stock body , I only cut down the front since I didn't use the blower .

Nice clean build Bob.  Your background (and floor) in your pics really do justice to the car.  Nice photography too!  cheers, tim
