When I win the Lotto and open the National Model Car museum, you and John Teresi are going to cost me a small fortune. Wow, my mind fills with positive expletives and accolades when I admire this build from tire to tire.

Dirk... This is one sweet build. Man you do some outstanding work. I loved seeing the build up in the Drag Section. I am sure looking forward to your next drag build or whatever you decide to build. I would love to see this in person. Very Impressive Build!!!

That's fantastic Top Fuel Bike. Incredible detailing, and the amount of scratchmade parts is amazing. I'm speechless.

Can't find the words to express how impressive and well done that is. Incredible is a start, but not nearly enough. Wow, just wow!

A beautiful piece of work - I really admire modelling skills such as this , we all try to reach this level in modelling but very few of us do - and I am not one of them. Excellent build.

Hi,

An amazing build!! A level of workmanship most of us can only dream of - it would be great to see the model in person but that won't happen unfortunately.

I sometimes go to the drags - I'm mainly into the cars but seeing the top fuel bikes roaring down the track often carrying the front wheel a long way and topping 220mph is very impressive!

I'll have to have a look though the build thread over on the drag racing section - I'm sure there'll be lots to learn.

Cheers,

Jim

Wow! Thanks for the kind words, Gents! Being recognized by my peers means more to me than any trophy.
