Here is another one I finished this year. It's a 68 Roadrunner from AMT. I had built one many years ago and needed to do another one. My original build was more than 20 years old. This is built right out of the box but I used Keith Marks decals. I also used scale finishes Q5 Seafoam Turquise on this one. It's a rare color for a Roadrunner. I also clear coated this one with automotive clearcoat. I use Surwin Williams CC939. I bought it for the real car that I'm working on.

OH, I forgot I switched out the tires and painted the redlines on. So I guess it's not box stock anymore.

Great looking model. I have done two of these kits, each one better than the last, and none touched yours. Really clean, sharp work.

Another splendid build , Sport !

 

Q5 is such a beautiful colour ; frankly , I'm surprised that there weren't more '68-'72 MoPars built in this colour ! I've only seen two which were Q5 :

- 1972 Dart Swinger Special ( "Q5" was right there on its fender tag ! I guess that '72 was its last year)

- 1968 Barracuda Formula-S 383 (original , very faded and oxidised Q5 . Car was largely original , with its only mods being Ansen Sprints , Doug's functional side pipes , and a two barrel carb atop the original intake which was added in '74)

 

Keep those beautiful builds coming !
