This is the revell Kurtis Kraft midget with the Edelbrock flathead 60 V8. As I said in my 29 ford thread I was doing something new I hadn't tried before. Well here it is I thought I would try puting some sparkplug wires on. I got a heap of old phone line and stripped the white outer case off and found 5 smaller wires in mixed colors. they maybe a bit out of scale I dont think it looks that bad, to be honest for a first attempt I don't think I did to bad at all.
The glue I used for the window hadn't dried yet
All thats left now is to finish the trailer and build something to haul it to the track.

Its not a hard kit to build, the only trouble I had was that the rear axel was a bit long and the ends were the wrong shape to slot into the back of the radius rod assembly. If you have one of these kits check out section 3 of the instructions to see the parts I'm talking about.
The hardest part of the build for me was putting those plug wires on it was a pain.
A freind of mine Bruce built one of these,he had a bit of trouble with the top of the seat,he put two small bits of plastic card at the sides,it help to hold it in while glue dryed,as I said got two to build done know if I will put wires on engine might ckicken out
As ray mentioned in his 66 impala post I also got me a trophy at the Uraidler show for the midget, Jason said it was for best engine but I think it was because I was the only one silly enough to attempt to put wires on an engine this small.
