Somebody offers a resin body with a one piece front end. Maybe Scale Modeling by Chris?

That paint turned out awesome, Derrick! Almost looks like Petty blue.

Didn't someone cast a Prostreet chassis for the Henry J?

... I agree with AZ. You slot car guys kill me with your body and paint and it's something you can really drive, sort of.

From the first Smoking J to the last, they are all super cool! Now I ask myself, "Why don't I have a Henry J?"

Wayne, those are some awesome builds. My favs are the orange one with the skulls, the yellow with checkers, & the black with flames. Great stuff.
