That's a great treatment for a seldom seen car. Really nice work as usual Mark.

Here's a sneak peek of my rear end treatment. Shaved the emblems and painted matt black.

You haven't seen it before because it is a new release from Bandit Resins. It has only been available for about two weeks and I've only had mine for a week.

I got a lot of bench time for Father's Day weekend. I worked on the Barracuda on and off all weekend but I don't have a lot to show for it.

I'm using the kit engine block and front cover topped with heads, intake, front drive accessories from the more detailed AMT 1969 GTX kit. I lopped off the top of the Barracuda kit's distributor and replaced it with a tan painted resin cap from Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland. The tan cap represents an Accel part to match the ubiquitious oversized resin Accel Super Coil that I will also use. The carbs are painted with Tamiya X-31 Titanium Gold. I spent much time drilling out the four resin cast Brembos. B)

The interior tub has been painted with Tamiya TS-82 Rubber Black.

Finally, a detail shot of the front end of the car. The front valance opening is molded closed on the kit part. The grille has been detail painted and MV Lenses replaced the molded in units.

Enjoy!!!

I'm really digging the silver and black treatment with just enough chrome to pull it all together. Great eye as always Marc.

Received some custom decals in the mail today. They are like the stock Barracuda stripes without the engine call out on the front fenders.

I'll do the other side tomorrow night after this side is good and dry. Does this addition make this Barracuda a Striped Bass? :rolleyes:

Enjoy!!!

Marc, the stripes look very cool! so happy that you made sure they ran correctly through the door handle and not under them like you see too often :lol:


Dave

Thanks!

All I did was Google images of 1969 Barracudas to see how the stripes work on a 1:1. Then, I photocopied the decal, cut it out, and test fitted the copy first. Once I was satisfied with the placement, I transferred the cuts to the actual decal. The decal was applied in three pieces.

Here's where I am as of 6-23. Made an intake from the FI setup in 70 Chevelle kit. I also wanted the stripes to be high up on the sides.

First time I saw one of these I was like what the hell. I never new they made these in a notchback. I thought they were all ugly fast backs. These look good with the front end. I saw it at a hotrod shop a few years back.

Can't let KDog @ Bandit Resins have all the fun! :D

I've been out of town for a week but I'm slowly getting back to the bench. I've cleared the outside with Tamiya TS-13. Still needs polished. Painted the drilled Brembos with Testors Stainless Steel Metalizer and Tamiya TS-16 Yellow. While the paint fully cures I continue work on the engine and interior.

Enjoy the pics!
