  1. To all of you out there that have not been to the "Flats", GO! You will see everything from semi trucks, electric vehicles, Vintage type cars, imports, you name it. There`s something for all. The sound of a BIG HORSEPOWER streamliner kicking up a white rooster tail screaming across the salt is most definitely exciting! A trip to Bonneville might just inspire you to do a build.

  2. I actually bought this awhile back and since it`s in 1/24th scale, the pumps seem (at least to me) way to large. Now granted, I may have forgotten how tall these things actually were, but they are just to big to my old eyes. Soooo, I have a buddy who has a early 60`s pump that I will measure  and scale down to 1/25th to see if my assumptions are correct. I`ll post my results for the rest of you all. Thanks for all the comments.

  3. Is there anybody out there making resin 1/25th scale vintage (50`s/60`s) gas pumps and decently priced garage kits. Scale Modeling by Chris is done ( he passed away) and I can`t find anything else. I have Texaco decals and I can get scale shop equipment but no pumps.

     

  4. I`m about to order some 1/16th 19" dragster front tires. They look great in the photos and not that expensive. Also thinking about the 1/16th blown 392 Chrysler (rather expensive but very well done)! I`d really like to see same scale rear tires ( M&H Racemaster or Goodyear "Blue Steak" ). Working on a mid - 60`s top fuel car. Tires would help a lot! Is there anybody else who makes the tires in 3D?

  5. Just a suggestion but the center caps on the 8 lug wheels should be painted a "satin silver" or aluminum. They were never chrome plated. As well, the lettering should be picked out in black.  You`re absolutely right though, they are really nice!
