Top rat job mate. Has Revell re-released this kit or is it one you've had in your stash awhile?

No luck on the re-release. I bought this back in the 80's and reworked it about 10 years ago

Absolutely! Saw Cavissini's Coupe many times , particularly when it was white and also the day he flipped it over like a slow motion roll at the Drags. He drove it around for many years and at one pont in time it was running without the blower!
Just restarted on building my 1/16th '34 Coupe , which like Mr Mopar, have had since the eighties , except , I'll now build it like "Wild 33" with a few differences.

Cheers Ron

Yes I reckon those wheels improve the TUFF look immensely. Still looks wicked in satin black mate - a nice job all round.

yeah i like those wheels better myself, they give it a much meaner look to go with that awesome stance!
