'55 Chevy Pro Sportsman dragster as driven by Charles Carpenter

Sweet stuff Paul! I love the body displayed separately on the base. You got the paint sheen just right for a racer too!

And you're wondering what else to take to the show ??????


Great build matey, I like the difference in having the shell on a stand ... makes it a bit more "stand out" in my opinion
