The rears are from the old Killer Cuda kit, the fronts are from the Smokey Convoy Chaser Dart.
Thanks

I can count several mistakes I made just because I overlooked them. I blame the new born baby boy in our house for the lack of attention to detail. :)
I should have removed the windshield wipers, door handles, and Roadrunner script on the trunk lid.
My plug wires should have been yellow based on the restored car.
It still has a long way to go to get finished.
Thanks!

I think it looks great so far ( not that I expected anything less )



ps, what did you use for the intake and air cleaner ? Is it the monogram pieces by chance ?

But, and if I may.

the actual car used the base line interior not the high line int you have shown

I know a resin version of the baseline int was / might still be avail thru missing link . I have one for this very build later on and it looks outstanding.

and btw,

With a new born baby in the house this is going to take awhile


Just wait till they get older. Bench time doesn't get any easier to find . Trust me, mine are 15 + 12 . Everyday we are taking one or the other to some activity

The air claner is indeed from monogram. The intake and carbs were just in the parts box, I think the intake is from a Superbee and the carbs are from an AMT Duster.
When this started I was just going to do a quick build using the Johan kit out of the box. But I just kept changing stuff. I did get resin seats but used the rest of the interior from an AMT GTX.
Thanks!

how do people make those things for the engine wire so that they look nicer? i ve been wiring for a couple years now and havent figured out if you buy them or are extremely careful making them.

Looks excellent as always, Roger. I like the subject alot and your paint job is turning out awesome. Engine detailing looks great, too and I wouldn't be worried about little differences to the 1:1 car, it's very few people who will notice them anyway.
