    Thanks Tim. All you have to do is plant the pieces in the garden and water everyday. Just kidding. I can't say it enough that the TDR Big Al comes Alive products go together extremely well and look great when finished. There are no warping parts or misfits. In my hands, it's way better than resin Big Al comes Alive .

    Hey Rob. If you look at the first picture I posted of the completed model, you can see where I put a quarter. Still, I'll go ahead and do one with a dollar bill so you can get a better idea.

    Jeff, rather than shoot a pic with a dollar bill....why not just lay a 12" ruler against the stand, that should clear up the size of the Big Al...as you know in 1/8th scale it's one big puppy.
    I'm still waiting for someone to stuff one into a 1/8th scale front engined old school dragster like the Lindy Eliminator kit. Maybe even top it off with an altered Bantam coupe or Topo body.

    Now that's a good idea Don. I'll do that instead. When you think about it, the Allison is about twice as big as one flathead engine. You need a lot of oooomf if you want to try and lift a P40 for a few hours.
