1/25th scale Dodge Viper Dragster Update Oct 24 01 Aug 2011 01:35 #1

While looking for reference pics for my Mopar 440 motor for another project I ran across some photos in 'Mopar Muscle Mag' of a cool looking Viper based in England.

This car is built as a Sportsman/ Pro Mod dragster. The body appears mostly stock, not the greatly distorted 'funny car' type.

My thought is to modify the chassis from the Revell '57 Chevy Sportsman to fit the Revell Dodge Viper body :hmmm :hmmm :hmmm

Here are some reference shots(for discussion only!!!)























Start pics.....












Now I need to go break open some kits :) :)

Thanks you guys :) :) Have not got past the thinkin & dinkin stage yet....



Here is a side view of the 1:1 car....






The body from the Viper kit.....








The specs on the real viper dragster lists a wheelbase of 110" It looks like they stretched the body out behind the front wheel well and the windshield, I think I can do the same on the model :hmmm :hmmm

Bump up the rear fenderwells to hold the slicks and come up with the hood scoop. Should take care of the body mods.


Mike, Going with a hemi for now, reserve the right to change :)
