Default 1/16 "Big Daddy" AA Fuel Dragster

I usually have several things going at once. This is what I'm working on while I wait for paint and glues to dry on the Trike

Very nice! I had one of these as well but I think it was a newer version. I remember that the rear tires had a very thin sidewall and would wrinkle easily and I had the hardest time gluing part#s 7,8,&9 together. That was a miserable experience especially when my mom decided that I needed to use the non-toxic glue (smelled like citrus) and wouldn't hold two magnets together. Fun times!

Thank you Harry ! I believe you are correct, there seems to be 2 versions, maybe even 3 versions of the rear engine ones. The tires are very soft and thin walled, they melt down in the summer heat really well, and without looking to see what 7,8,an 9 are, I'm sure they were a P.I.T.A. It has so many tiny narrow, thin pieces, its hard not to break things.Good thing I'm much older now.

Mom trusted me with the good glue, but I struggled with taking time to scrape the chrome plating off to get a good glue joint. I convinced her the other was pointless...lol

I worked on it a little bit more then took a break, it was getting hard on my hands, so I switched to motorcycle model which I will try to post shortly in a new thread.
