Well I must than Joe - mother for the kit. It looks like it will be a blast to build. There will be some work in it but overall a nice looking kit.

It looks like the same mold as the Army marked "Sarge" dragster I bought several years ago. Nice job.

Based on the tires and the over emphasize detail on the body - all you have to do is switch out the decals and 'shazam' - different Top Fuel.

Still will be fun to build.

When I was a kid I made every Dragster or Funny Car I could get a hold of. They were always great fun! It nice to see that spirit still exists! Can't wait to see it built!

It sucks that Ebay isn't a viable option here, it seems like you can get some good stuff at a reasonable price.

Eddie Hill, the first man to ET under 5 seconds, as far as I can recall.

Nice review Scott, can't wait to see it started. Yeah the kit has pretty much stayed the same the last 15 years with a few little changes.

Jasper, yeah Eddie is the man. That was in 1992 when he ran under 5 sec. a 4.77 with a 9 and in the same year he ran four straight 4.80’s. In 1999 he ran a career best elapsed time of 4.535. Eddie “Holeshot Hill” is full of record firsts.
