This is classic USA modeling -- a dragster with a custom body made to look like a car sold to the public. I watched Tom McEwen race this car, the "Mongoose," on TV when I was a boy and you could see drag-racing every summer weekend. Eventually Mattel "Hot Wheels" toys sponsored this car and Don Prudhomme's "Snake." God, those were the days, right? This is NHRA racing, or National Hot Rod Association, the body that covers drag racing.

This is a simple kit, old molds, requires a lot of finesse. All the work has to go into the body shell, which is beautiful, and the decals, which are unbelievable. I will include a photo of them next post.

Thanks for the kind words, fellow modelers. I do love race cars, with the decals and colors. These old Revell-Monogram kits are a real challenge -- I wish they would get their act together and make something with new molds.
