I built many of the Monogram '80s Funny Cars when they were new, and applying the decals was always the best part. :)

I remember when Hot Rod Magazine had a centerfold poster if McEwen's '57 flopper- I couldn't wait to hang it on my wall. Looks like you've made some nice progress so far. ;)

Nice start, it looks good! I have to admit I'm a little jealous, I had one in my stash, opened it up to find a big piece of the body missing through the injection process. I need another body!

Looking good! I like the flames and the paint color. I finally got mine started with a box stock approach, I think I like yours better. Are you going to add wires? Just wondering because I need some reference and was going to look at yours. I don't know much about fuel lines on this one either I will stay tuned, nice progress so far.

I know what you mean about getting pushed to the side. Sometimes I just want to go back to when I could just build them without the details. Just finished a snap kit and I love it.
