With the near completion of my period Drag Racing diorama,
I thought I should try a few more shots of my other Drag Racing projects which are close to being finished.
...gotta finish them one day !!...and the reason for need of good driver figures !

It's one of the finest jobs I've seen, great diorama.  I'm happy to see a vehicle diorama after the many other good ones with military themes.  Variety is important and appreciated. My 2 faves are both orange, the Henry J looks like it was MADE for the drags and the '46-48 Ford with side skirts is so cool, thanx!

Going thru your pics is like sitting in the bleachers with a beer on Wednesday night when the locals dominated the action.

Hi Mr D,

I am so very sorry Sir for missing this...

May I ask how do you manage to do the wheelies please, are the cars propped up just for the photos or did you build them like that (sorry for the daft question)...

Andy...

Hi Andy....simply, the far front wheels are balanced on plastic sprue,
then carefully photographed.
