On the go out of my own collection, I am building a 1956 nomad gasser drag car, I have a real passion for vintage drag racing and drag cars, the vintage drag cars are the center of my model collection, This will be a Revell kit with kitbashing.
As well I am building a pair of 1978 Corvette pace cars for the owner of the Corvette collection I purchased back in March of 2018.
I have been asked by Joe Germann to build a replica of his 1965 Ford Falcon Wild Child drag car….the actual car lives at a museum in Maine. I have been told by Joe that once the replica is built in will end up in the museum with the real car.
