I started work on this almost twenty years ago, moved on to something else, and put it back in the closet. Last night, I decided to get it out and take some better photos of it. It began as Monogram's old off-scale Midget kit. Inspired by the old Belanger Special Indy car, I cut it apart and lengthened it, to better represent one of the "big cars".

I've had this previously-built 4-Banger Dragster for a few years now, but the OHC-converted B motor was pretty severely glue-damaged. The "Offy" from a Monogram Indy Roadster gave me the impetus to pull it back out, and scavenge through a Monogram Slingster Dragster for front wheels and a few other details. Since then, I've changed gears again - ordered an Offy 270 from American Racing Miniatures - hope to have more progress soon.
