Here is my current project. A 1967 hemi charger.  I painted the car factory dark blue metallic E code.   Really deep color. Can't wait to see the contrast of the white seats interior. Gonna be a kick ass...lol

Thanks Bill.

 

I love 66 and 67 Chargers.  The body lines are superb.

Ben, thank you for that. I really appreciate it.

 

I'm trying to learn how to super detail engines and this....well right click>save as.

 

The work you've done on this engine is very inspiring for me.

I've been doing models for quite a long time....But if there is a step that is nerve racking is glueing the windsheild and rear window. Especially on those models, like this one, which the glass is too small leavin less than 1/16 of an inch of plastic on each side to glue on.  The winsheil is of, but the rear window is a pain in the butt.

 

I need a beer.

Just finished the glasses and interior is glued to the body. Looks sharp. I'm presently working on the undercarriage.
