Count me in on this with a '69 Dodge Charger. I won't be able to get around building it until after Christmas though

as you can tell Alan's rims are coming in nicely
i sprayed a TON of allclad today...pretty much the entire interior tub looks like it is bare steel (its a tubbed rear end and the rear seat has been tore out), the rims and the injection system

i also did some small assembly to the engine and the chassis
oh, and some mudding to the front and rear panels to get rid of those terribles ALL cuda models seem to have

on a side note, dont you love those round taillights? we dont see enough of them


so, what would i be looking at for interior colours on a moulin rouge cuda ?

I think all the body work is done on the charger to convert it to a 74, as soon as the primer is dry I will know, I think I still need to work on the side window a little more though.

Everything else is done on for the most part, will get a pic of body up soon

that may be true on your workbench but have a look at OUR bench http://www.modelcars...opic=44802&st=0

i stopped counting squared taillights at 50, i counted exactly 2 cudas with round taillights ;)

Here is another one I have for this CBP, just came today, been thinking about wanting to do a two door conversion on one of the new charger kits

heres a quick update guys, i laid some paint down yesterday and im not sure if i like it or not

the can was labeled "panter pink" and its a MM paint (usually very good)
but once i laid down a few coats and it started drying i thought it looks more like furious fuscia (the paint they used on the tribute models in '10)

judge for yourself

im waiting on some decals and a front bench and then i should be able to finish her up :)

interior and billboards will both be white, then i am thinking off adding some kit supplied decals (also in white) but not sure about that

i painted the rear panel silver instead of black because i thought it would look better that way, closer match with the white billboards
i also did some more work on the engine, all it needs now is the belt setup and some fuel to it :)

What yellow did you use Davin?

Got the body painted on the charger, still working on the hood
Posted Image
And I started working on the charger super bee, I have decided that I am not going to try and convert this one to a two door, I am going to use the Revell uptown kit for that
Posted Image

The body is primed with white primer, I did some paint down on it, but I the shade of yellow I got is going to be way to light
