1971 Plymouth Satellite Rebuild

08 November 2014 - 04:40 AM

Did you ever have one of those projects that just got away from you or just got out of hand?  I do.  Case in point...my Monogram '71 Satellite.  I stole the engine out of this model for my '70 Roadrunner because it has a single carb intake with an automatic transmission and I would replace the engine with the unbuilt 440+6 Barrel from the '70 Roadrunner kit.  Easy peasy!  Yeah...right!

Last night I decided to add ignition wiring to the engine and drilled out the distributor and cylinder heads.  This morning, I took apart the rest of the model.  I had originally built this model back in the mid to late Nineties, so most of the Satellite came apart without too much drama.  Now I must clean up and repaint just about everything including the body.  Now this project has gotten out of hand!

So, this is where I am at with this rebuild.  The model has been disassembled and is awaiting cleanup.  The body will have its mold lines and old decals removed and then repainted.  I have yet to decide on a color.


This is the engine from the '70 Roadrunner and it's partially assembled.  It is a direct replacement for the '71 Satellite engine with all mounting points in the exact same place.  This engine has a 4-speed trans on it so the interior console will be modified for a pistol grip shifter.



I will separate the exhaust from the rear axle, add a clutch pedal, and detail the interior.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T

26 October 2014 - 11:03 AM

My new project is Revell's '68 Charger R/T.  I debated with myself if I was going to use the 440 or the 426 Hemi and the 440 won out.  Currently, I have a '68 Hemi Charger R/T and a '69 Hemi Charger SE on the shelf and one '68 Charger R/T with a 440.  The kit I am using I bought back in '08 when the kit was issued and I had bought two with one being used for a Build Off with my Canadian friend, Randy.  This build may be used for next years' Classic Plastic Model Club Challenge...Mopars!  

The kit...Revell 1968 Dodge Charger R/T kit #85-4202.


I am using a set of Cragar SS mags from the Revell '67 Charger kit and the paint will be Tamiya TS-54 Light Metallic Blue. The interior will be the same blue with dark blue inserts on the seats.


I guess you could describe my model as a "Day 2 car", a term I do not like.  I will use my sewing pin technique for a more realistic side marker.
