This is a work in progress started several years ago.  The engine of course received the bulk of the detailing.  Since Monogram's old Hemi had little detail with only an inaccurate timing cover, I began by scratch buildng the whole front of the engine.  I adedd the oil pump and filter, and created a water pump.  once satisfied with the look of the basic engine. I added plug wires and fuel lines. The engine compartment on this kit is very sparse and still in need of completion.  firewall and water pump was drilled for heater hose, and lines added, as was the was the master brake cylinder vac line.  Still needed as some will notice are heater blower motor and batery + cable, along with wiper motor and a few other small bits.  On the suspension, as with this old kit there are some details lacking, but I kept it simple with only the addition of rear shocks and drilling out the exhaust tips. One bit of detail I concentrated on with this kit was the suspension markings used on the real counterparts from the factory.  A keen Mopar guy will pick out discrepancy in colors used, but this was done using various images of concourse restorations of other Mopars I have seen over the years.  Hope you enjoy picking an old guys efforts apart.  Will have more projects to post soon.

That's about as great as that kit can be done in fairly stock form. Superb job.

That's a nice looking model. I really like the photos done in the snow.
