      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

First of all, thanks to the guys here for adding this forum. Every site should have a drag racing forum! :D

This car was built from the Revell kit of the same car. I reworked the front of the car to add the up to date front wing. I added as much detail as I was able to. The eyes ain't what the used to be.

Thanks guys!

Hey Ryan, been a while.

I used a metalizer on the front wheels, then tinted some tamiya clear yellow until I got it to look decent. Not a perfect match to the original but, close enough to suit me.

You I have to comment on this awesome ride! I have to ask however, how did you modify the front end?

Thanks,

The wing was made from a piece of sheet styrene that was heated and bent around a round dowel for the curvature. The end plates were used from the MCG t/f wing PE set.

Here are a few pictures that may help,
