Bernard Kron Posted July 27, 2012 Share Posted July 27, 2012 (edited) This is my first 1/4 miler project since late last year. I’ve been building hot rods but now it’s time for some drag machines. My initial build is an early 60’s A/ or AA/Dragster based on a Dragmaster IV chassis. I started with the Revell Mickey Thompson Attempt I kit, removed the second roll hoop, trimmed the rear tin work off the basic body, and swapped the Attempt I’s narrow front axle for a full width unit from a Revell Tony Nancy Double Dragster kit. Power will be a from a Revell Parts Pak blown Pontiac. Tires are pie crust M&H Racemasters courtesy of Ma’s Resin mounted on vintage Halibrands I scored on eBay a while back. Front wheels will be wires from the Tony Nancy kit. I'm really enjoying the detail and intricacy of this kit. Parts fit is surprisingly good. Not as fiddly as some Revell kits from this period. I'm saving the Attempt I's 4-bangers and the wheels and tires for my parts stash. Thanx for lookin', B. Here are some inspiration pics: And some pics of the chassis, some of the bodywork and paint, and the rear tires and wheels: Edited August 3, 2012 by Bernard Kron Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
