Amazing work John. It probably includes an anatomically correct driver with a broken left leg and right foot.

Rick......actually it does.......The foot is barely hanging on with the bode exposed and blood oozing out.........I did not want to post a picture of it to offend anyone......thanks,John

Freaking incredible. I tried to be funny by pointing a detail that could not possibly be in the model, and you have it... amazing. You never cease to amaze me.

Awesome diorama, with amazing detail and realism. Don't know if y'all know this. but this diorama was featured in the NHRA Dragster Insider column by Phil Burgess on March 2, 2011. Here is a link to the column, you'll have to scroll down to the March 2 column. http://www.nhra.com/blog/dragster-insider/

How did you make the asphalt for Drag Strip? I'd like to build one Drag Strip too, but don't know how to make the asphalt.

Niko.......the asphalt is a 1/4 inch 12x14 piece of black light plastic foam. ...........I spray painted it black........then I taped off a center lane and airbrushed it white.......then I gave the whole piece a heavy wash.......the foam cost about 3 dollars at the local model train store.........and is pre-cut......i used the whole piece.......thanks
