Started this build about 30 years ago, have been looking for the older pics of the build but have not found them.

These pics start about a year ago...

...the funny car chassis was so brittle that all I ended up not fabricating are the zoomie pipes and the tires.

Will post more later.

This thing is CRAZY! I love it. With the right paint job you could have the Blue Max vs the Blue Angels. Just be sure to reverse the curvature of those wings so she doesn't take flight at mid track.

...in the background you can see another, unmodified funny car chassis.

I'd heard about painting with nail polish, and when my Father passed away he had a whole box full of the stuff (made me go "Hmmm", but then I realized he used the them on his RC aircraft), so I decided to try it out.

I hear ya's all now, "Bob! You don't brush it on, you use an air brush!". That would explain why my toenails look so bad 'cause I used a spray bomb.

More later!

...I did so much body work (plane work?) on this build I lost my fingerprints again like when I was working at MDCAN sanding aluminum parts to fit. In the last pic you can see the start of the forward outboard stabilizers.
