Hope I can still get in on this one... haven't touched my models for over a year (divorce), but now I have a new home with an office that is housing all of my models and I have plenty of room to work on them now :) Here's what I'm planning on doing... Gonna keep the stock hood and put the Hemi under it (hope it fits), change the tires and rims, and keep the interior stock... All I did 1 1/2 yrs ago was put some paint on the body, chassis, and interior...

Just set the tires under the chassis to see how well they will look...

I just picked up the AMT '71 Charger. In the process of moving, but I'll get started once I'm settled in. Does anyone do the R/T stripes in white?

I am waiting to see if I win a few bids on evilbay , I am trying to get a couple of chargers, and I have a 68 RR, I am thinking about what I want to do with RR before I start on it.

I have been thinking about doing a 2dr conversion of one of the newer charger kits, just not sure yet, I know there is a reisn body for a 2dr.

Edit- just won the action for the 71 charger, so as soon as it gets here, guessing next week sometime I will get started on it, I am going to do the charger from the show burn notice, the only thing is the charger used in the show is a 73 .

Some guy on ebay used to sell resin ones all of the time, he might still list one.

OK, I'm in with a '70 AAR Cuda, done in 1/25 from a Jo Han '71 pro stocker. I'll post some photos later today. I may add others later if this runs long.

Well I can start taking part in this CBP now, the 71 charger is here now, and when I figure about my plans for the 68 roadrunner I will start on it soon, plus I have a lindberg charger super bee on the way as well.

My plan is to make the charger from the show Burn Notice, whcih is a 73 charger, so I need to makes some changes, side windows, fill in the door vents, and change the front grill and the taillight panel. For that I think I know a way to do that some what easy, decals

Here is the the kit

allright fellars i decided on.....the....cuda

its an old PMC so probably around 75 parts ?
i figured i could get it knocked out easily

still have a lot to decide on rolling gear and engine set up...(for the egine, should the hemi be dual carbs, injected or blown)
but at least i got to work on it
i got my table all set up (had to work on the kitchen table since the wifey is at work and the boy was sleeping) and i had just glued the two halves of the engine together when my boy woke up


looks like thats all the progress for me today

I'd like to get in on this one too,being open ended. It'll be a bit before I can get to a Mopar though,several in front of it on the bench,but I'll check in and follow along. I'm thinking anything from a '69 Super Bee to another Daytona to a Shelby Charger maybe.

well, i got about 3 more minutes of work in on the 'cuda and i've made some desicions, the engine will be a fuel injected hemi, hilborn style
the rolling stock will be keystone mags, i have a set left over from the 67 GTX that will run on the front and a set of custom deep dishes for the rear that i got from Ma's Resin
the hood will iether the a resin AAR hood (the wifeys favotire) or the stock supplied prostreet hood (the boys favorite)
determining factor will be the clearance needed for the injection stacks

now...does anyone know the model masters code for moulin rogue ?

wont be untill the weekend, the wifey is working nights and i use her phone to take pics
but there is little progress to see
there is some black paint on the chassis and the engine is halfway build (no paint yet)
the rollcage is assembled and the wheel centers are tacked to the wheel backs so i can start sanding the rims down to make them fit
i also went ahead and removed the molded in tailpipes from the rear panel since the exhaust wont reach that far anyway
