For a long time I fell like doing a drag car, I found this one in my stash and there was it...I already have 3 session of work done on it. The frame is painted with a 50% mix of Alclad Aluminium and Gunmetal. The body is painted Ferrari F1 base coat and most lettering is done. Now the work begins...

This is a pretty standard build that's not so interesting but anyways here are some progress pics...I'm working on perparation steps and some detailing.I use Alclad bronze on the blower and valve cover but the paint does'nt stand all the handling and comes off on the edges. Anyone knows if this paint can be cleared to protect it?

This one is completed. Beside some wings that are not straight the rest is done. I used epoxy glue and because of that thoses wings moved before setting. So I'll have to repositioned them.
I does'nt look too much on the pics so there they are...

Great looking build. I will certainly reference this when I go to build any straight railers.
