  1. Kudos for hanging in there on this one. It looks great. I got to the final assembly on mine and gave up, put it back in the box. I may pull it out one day and see if I can make something out it. Nice job.
  2. Coming along nicely. That blower setup looks cool. Someone mentioned it now needed headers, I would have to agree with that. I've started one and I see what you were talking about in getting it lowered. I'm having problems getting the tires inside far enough to get it down where I want it. Looking at what you did has gave me some ideas though.
  3. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks Bob. It was a fun kit. That engine being out in the open calls for a lot detailing, but I'm not very good at that.
  4. Thanks Bob. Thanks Carl. I have a set on the way.
  5. I built one of these a couple months ago but my grandson saw it and wanted it for his shelf. The first was OOB build, this one I'll do a little different. I have lowered it a little and like where it's at, but I think I can get it down a little more. I've got the Hemi engine from the 32 5 window kit I want to put in it if I can find some heads for it. Seemed to have misplaced the ones in the kit.
  6. Nice kit. Few fitment problems here and there, but not bad. This is my first top fuel dragster build, tried adding a few fuel lines, but it's not very accurate.
  7. Calling this one done. I'll put it under glass.
  8. Great looking Nova. Nice work.
  9. Great work on this. Looking forward to seeing the finished model.
  10. Don't know the size of the heads that were in the kit, but the area on the block where they mount is 6cm x 2mm.
  11. I need a set of heads for the hemi engine in the Revell 32 Ford Special Edition 2n1. Thanks.
  12. Ok, copperhead got to be copper, right. Tamiya XF 28 dark copper.
  13. Thanks for the update. Works fine for me on WaterFox.
  14. Engine almost done, headers will go on last. I know the plumbing is probably not accurate, but It's all I can do. I'm satisfied with it. There are lines going to the injectors, hard to see because they are black, should have used blue like the feed line.
  15. That is looking great. I built this kit a few months ago, but didn't go into many mods like you are. I do wish I had lowered it. I did notice the small tail pipes and fabricated some pipes running out in front of the rear wheels that look a little better. My grandson was here today and saw the built model and wanted it, so it's sitting on his shelf now. I plan to pick up another one, and for next time you have gave me some good tips on lowering it and installing a different engine. Looking forward to seeing your finished work.
  16. Yours looks great. I built it as a dune buggy, had lots of fitment problems. Didn't come out very good.....
  17. Thanks for the photos, they help. The next to the last one looks like what I've got except mine is 2 stacks and that one's 4. I have the little box at the front like that. I can just run a line from the fuel pump to it, then 2 lines off that to the stacks.
  18. Thanks. I've got what looks like three connections on the fuel pump, one at the bottom, two at the top. I'm assuming the bottom one is the return, and the one of the top ones is the inlet, the other the outlet? Where would I connect the line at the injectors? Looks like there is a small distribution block on the front of the injectors. I may give it a try if I can find the right wire to do it with. It would not be perfect, but it may give it a better look.
  19. My first one also Bob. Seems like a simple kit. The frame is all one piece, so no fiddling with it. Nice looking engine with it, I'll add some plug wires, but it will mostly be OOB build. Thought about some fuel lines but not sure how these things are plumbed.
  20. Started on this little dragster I picked up at Ollie's.
  21. Nice. Well done.
  22. Beautiful little Vette. Well done.
