  1. Here’s what I’ve pulled from my stash to try to reproduce Les Ritchey’s ‘65 2+2 A/FX drag car employing the gargantuan Ford 427 SOHC V-8 which I’m harvesting from the Moebius ‘65 Comet drag kit: I know, a 1/25 engine in a a 1/24 car = a 4% undersized engine. But these engine were way too wide anyways so maybe I won’t have to do quite as much surgery on the engine bay/ shock towers as was actually required in the 1:1’s? Also the fabulous Fireball Resin Holley carbs that I plan to use seem closer to 1/24 than 1/25 so hopefully that will help tone down the scale miss-fit. The good news is both kits are molded in white styrene (there should be a law about that…). I feel so bad for you guys with the red plastic kits. I still have PTSD from trying to paint the white areas on the red molded Ebbro 1/20 Lotus 72C F1 kit a few years ago. Even after spraying multiple primer and silver base coats - it still looks a slightly pink to me. The two additional challenges I’m thinking about besides the engine fit include 1) how to model the front axle/ suspension, the real car had dropped A arms and partial torsion springs in front of the axle to provide engine clearance and kick up the front end for large OD front tires and rear weight transfer, 2) finding the right diameter and width slicks that will look right with this 1/24 body (the 1/25 ones In my photo above may be too small?). To add to my challenges, I’m hoping to complete two additional 1/25 auto subjects by late next month to include in a “collections” entry I hope to take to the US IPMS Nat’s in Las Vegas. Oh, and my wife just told me we’re going on a trip the first two weeks in Oct to visit her family so I’ll need to have my GB entry completed by late Sept. Feeling lazy today so please don’t hold me to any more progress than cleaning up my bench and washing the mold release off the runners for now! Looking forward to solving the problems!
