No its not from the latest Austin Powers movie!
I thought something a bit unusual from over the pond. There is a bit of tradition over here for Jaguar 4.2LTR engined drag altereds So heres my attempt. Its only about half built, the drivers pit (including rollcage)and the oil and electrics next, oh then the exhaust , '34 BMW Roadster body, etc etc. Its only been about 3 years now!!! One day!

Hope the post works.

Yeah the frame is 1/25 scale (actually its 1mm=1" Whistling) scratchbuilt from evergreen rod. I know it looks like a revell funny car chassis, but then it should do as its basically copied from one!!. Reason: Ii couldn't stand the "D" shaped cross-section of the frame rails (part of the moulding process?). It was that or file all the rails roundConfused

Absolutely beautiful scratch building! Great work on the detail too. I'm with the others I want to see more photos as you continue. I'm gonna hafta look up European drag racing on the 'Net. I've never really thought about what you guys would run in gasser classes and Pro Stocks. This could make for some interesting building for us guys in the US as we, more properly I, tend to be too US and Japanese centered.

Except for the wonderful little Fiat body!
