Project number 5...

 

Just finished with a 1982 Renault 5 Turbo and thanks to a fellow member (You know who you are), decided to build the Revell Special Edition 68' Dodge Charger R/T; this kit is way above my skill level, but I'm willing to give it my best shot.

Curiously, I was not able to find a single photo of the car as shown in the Hemified version (Not a complete model, not a real car... Nothing!!!)...  So I would like to make it just like it

But, since I usually buy two kits (In case I ruin something), would like to paint the second body in full black (This also to be used as a race version).

This kit is massive, well, for my newbie skills at least, and is probably the toughest I have yet to deal with, so please hang tight.

Thank you for reading.

Thank you for the props Oscar, I'm really hyped about this one.

 

Good luck on the build.

Thank you James.

 

That is a lot of spray right?, the thing is I'm really bad with the brushes and just getting a hold of the airbrush (Basically just use it for clear coats to be safe), but I have gotten kinda good with the spray cans, so pretty much spray paint for "everything"!!! (Waste of paint? maybe, but the stuff comes out really neat and clean).

 

On a separate note, the kit says remove the body emblems and the fender lights...   been starring at them for some time trying to figure out if I should attempt a clean cut, or if just sand them out  :wacko:

Surprisingly very minor sanding was required on the body and the chassi...

I know it looks a bit soft but I wanted to keep it mellow so that the other parts pop out a little better...   This was tough but I'm really happy how it came out  :P

"Remove the name off the gas tank". 

 

 

 

Thanks John Pol, I'm not sure I understand what do you meant by that?, the tank is a one piece to the frame :blink:  

 

EDIT:

 

Ahhhh!!!...  "The Name"!!!...  I read Frame IOI

These bumpers would have to do...
