Hello........thanks guys for the kind comments.........all chrome has been stripped.........I started glueing all halve pieces together........I got the engines and the front and rear axles mocked-up........The "Snake" has different valve covers than the Mongoose........so I dug out some valve covers from my parts box and modified them to resemble the 'Snake"valve covers......tomorrow I will modify a few more parts.......thanks for looking.

Looks like you're off to a good start John and I'm glad you're back to modeling drag racing subjects (as that's my fav).

I'm sure you've been asked before but I would like to know what sort of glue or adhesive you use for mock ups?

Thanks in advance, KB
