I haven't built a model from the box in, well since God was a boy. But I finally finished one.

Since getting older (and I'm older than dirt) I don't have the abilities to do extensive detailing. So most of my builds are pretty much "box stock" with minimal detailing. I normally try to build replicas of some 1:1 car, but this latest build is not a replica. It is based on a real individual and a real vehicle, but the model is pure imagination. More of a "show" car than what you would really see at the strip.

The build combines an AMT "Flying Wedge" kit, Testors Dark Cherry Pearl paint, minimal details from Pro-Tech, and decals from SLIXX.

I may have to grow old ....... but I refuse to grow up

That is an eyecatching rail!  Nice work.

Very nice car! It captures Goodell's top fuel car's look very well, accurate enough for me.

Kenney was a local hero of mine way back in the Stone Age, he was a top level racer and a cool guy!

Along with Ed "The Ace" he was a hero at Woodburn Drag Strip in the 60's 70's, showed his tail lights to many toring California cars from his fuel altereds to funny cars to top fuel!
