1969 Dodge Charger

This is the Revell kit, and a basic build. Mostly box stock, but I inverted the front spindles so the nose would sit lower. I also used the taillights from a Daytona kit, as the Charger came with none. Luckily I've converted three of the Daytona to NASCAR specs, and they don't use the taillights there!
I finished it the day before the NNL East and brought it there without taking any photos yet! Actually, it wasn't QUITE done, as I had not taken the orange Sharpie to the front marker lights yet.

this is a bodystyle that really stands out in that format.
This is really a nice kit. Revell did an outstanding job on it.
I love the Pro/Modeler version. have built a few of those.
Very nice build. you nailed the stance, too.

I have never had a black paint job come out that good

Engine is in a Zip Lock waiting to be transplanted into another model Chassis and interior are all flat black, not much to see there.
I'm glad you guys like the paint. Here's a little secret....portions of this car were brush painted! When I sprayed the body (Tamiya TS 14 Black directly onto white PLASTIC) I missed a few spots...leading edge of the hood, left side top of the door, some of the contours of the taillight panel...so I brush painted them. It's noticible more in person then it is in the pictures, but it's not too bad by any means.
I've actually always had pretty good luck with black. I can usually lay down a smooth black paint job unless the can is almost empty, when it is it tends to bubble and/or run. I've also brush painted entire bodies black and had them come out so good they fooled people into thinking it was sprayed on What can I say, black's my color when it comes to spray paint!
