I've owned quite a few P/L kits for awhile now, but this is my 'introduction' to actually building one. Along the way, I've learned about some of the pitfalls of these kits, but I'm pleased with the finished product. Please enjoy, and of course..questions and comments are welcome.

Looks great Aaron, as back-in-the-day I lived just a couple miles from Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge. I have one of those kits in my stash somewhere, and I have heard that the PL kits can be tricky at times.

Nick, Paul & Bill, thank you! Yeah Nick, there were a few "fit" issues along the way. I'll know better on the next one. :)

Like you Aaron I have a few of these PL kits in my stash, but unlike you I haven't had the guts to try one yet! Your sweet build shows how nice they can turn out. Great job!!!

Thanks Jim! I don't know why it took me so long to build this one. As you can see from my avatar, i'm kinda fond of the Mr. Norm's cars!

I've seen your funny car builds at the DSC and probably the old Copper State, you really do nice work.

Aaron... this is one beautiful model. Are you going to be bringing it to the Desert Scale Classic. I would love to see it in person. Hope you bring your Redci and WIse Funny car too. Again very nice work on this one.

Well done. That fuel tank looks huge. Maybe for more weight in the front.

Dan, Chris S., Chris R., Steve, Jim, Larry & Daryl..thanks alot gentlemen! It means a lot coming from all of you.

Steve, good observation on the tank. I would've really rather had just put the Moon tanks in, but a recently posted pic of this car with the body-up on a FB funnycar group changed all of that.

I just tried to approximate the dimensions.

Aaron, great looking build! and nice change-out on the tank, I never knew/seen a tank in that configuration. Thank goodness for vintage pics.

Keep the old funnies alive :).

Thank you Charlie! Agreed...I never saw a tank like that before either, and I never want to see another one like it again! :)
