Hi everyone, this has been posted in the drag section during the build and finally its all finished. This is all scratch built or aftermarket resin and other parts. It's a 1:16 scale 140" Kellison chassis with a 392 Hemi running a early Hilborn 4 hole injector scoop. Paint is Pontiac Engine Blue base, aqua marine flake and blue candy. The front wheel spokes were made from nickel plated brass wire, all the chrome is Alclad. Hope you like it.

Love it!! Rails lost my interest when they went rear engine. FE rail is cool.....VERY nice work.

Awesome model! You did an excellent job, looks like the real thing. But will it ever be able to out-run a Roadrunner? :P

Turned out excellent! These Front Engine Dragsters are really nice and I like them more than Rear Engine Dragsters, too. Your paint work is amazing and really like that Coyote decal you did. Excellent detailing too.

That is one of the nicest FE dragsters I have seen. The appearance is so realistic, you can smell the Nitro and feel the ground is shaking in the room.

Thanks guys, really appreciate all the comments. Personally I think the mid sixties is the best era of front engine dragsters, so many cool diggers ran the strips.
