Revell's Pontiac drag car. Hopefully on its wheels this weekend, while I wait for a distributor. I'll do the body in primer, as a new build racecar on it's shakedown runs.

Shay, it's a 4th generation, so about a '96. Got the body painted an hour ago, the bonnet is drying while I watch the BTCC race from Donnington.

I luv the idea of an early rendition of a race car. Go for it!

It pains me to say it but the BTCC is much more entertaining than F1. It's on for hours with the Porches and Ginettas having a go too. Any pics of the body?

Great start. You've done a nice job painting the chassis. Your contingency sponsors are going to be upset that you're hiding their decals under the hood though. Firebird Drag Car 3887228019 Firebird Drag Car 3887228019 Firebird Drag Car 3887228019

Nice progress! The stance is snarly and mean and everything a drag car should be.

They're hiding some flaws!  Here's an update. Engine wired (mostly) & plumbed.  Seat belts next. I bought some PE ones. Never again,the metal 'webbing' doesn't 'drape' in a natural curve, so I'll use their hardware with painted masking tape webbing.
Since it's a Pontiac the engine ( BBC) is at least Pontiac Blue. Enough of me, over to the build.
