This is my version of the Slingster. I used DeSoto Firedome valve covers, 5-Star mags with M&H tires and photoetched wire wheels from Replicas Miniatures of Maryland and a Magneto from Scale Repro Plus. The fuel pump is scratch build.
Beautifully done...I love the DeSoto valve covers and the gold/red contrast between them and the body. The photo-etched wire wheels make a big difference, too. Nice scratchbuilding on the pump...it blends right in!
That’s so swell it must be by Mattel! Nice job! Makes me remember back when I was 8 or 9 years old at the drags with my uncles and their buddies, I remember seeing stuff like this running the tracks. Would love to see some run again even if it was exhibition runs it would make my day!

Very nicely done, definitely one of the better versions of the Slingster kit that I've seen built! Excellent color choice for the body and those photo etch wire wheels are a huge improvement. Makes me want to start mine.
