I just saw this one over at MODEL CAR ROUND UP and wonder if anyone has either information or pictures of this thing built up. I am assuming another kit fits in there . . .

I am drawing a blank trying to remember if I had ever seen this one.

Interesting subject matter.

If you open that chrome, can you please post another pic. It's hard to tell exactly how the wheels look through the bag.

I really hope they wont be a hobby shop only item like most older re-issues. My brother had the original one with the rail dragster...always wanted one.

I got mine yesturday - very happy with it. Also my girlfriend is fascinated about that kit and she told me, to build it "now"! She wants to see every progress of it. The first time, that she is as hot like me, to get my hands on the kit!

Here a closeup from the plated parts:

Is the OHC 6 the same (or similar, block wise) as the 6 in the 67-69 MPC firebird? Any shots of instruction sheet showing engine?

I've always loved the 3-spoke chrome wheels found inside this kit! They are a little-bit "custom, racing, sports car, mag" all rolled into one!

What are the (4) tires like inside this kit? They look to be pretty wide, and kinda low-profile!?!
