After mulling over a few ideas I decided to try my hand at turning the Amt/Ertl dragster into a competition roadster. I used the spare single engine Rail sides and fabbed up some cross members. I didn’t know what to use for a body but after some internet inspiration I decided to use a junk 29 Ford Model A roadster body over the chassis. It is really in the early stage right now. But I can’t wait to move forward with this.

I'm diggin' this a hell of a lot already!
The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
Here are the wheels and tires I will be using. Usual Amt fare with the Firestone fronts and Goodyear Blue Streak Dragway Specials. Front wheels are from some version of Mpcs 57 Vette Gasser if I am not mistaken but aren’t set in stone as I don’t know their trakability. The rears are slotted mags from the Amt/Ertl 32 Ford Vicky kit.
The front axle is from the same junkyard build of the body, Amt/Ertl 29 Ford Model A.

krassandbernie: You guys missing the other posts I've made in the 'resin' section? I see a couple of you have spotted the Fordor sedan builds by customers I posted; but missed the others.

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..

RodBurNeR: last time he logged in here or dpmcc was July 9th. I am getting concerned , his Facebook has nothing on it. I sent him a text message, it's late but I want to know if he's ok.
