Talk about stuffing 10 pounds of something into a 3 pound bag... That engine bay looks full.
I especially like what you did with the chassis and suspension. Very nice.

That, my friend, is what we in Indiana call a 'Blivet'!

I just discovered this thread... Don't ask me how I missed it all this time... I am beyond impressed! I have a new Charger in the works and am really inspired by this build! I think I'm going to go in a different direction with it now...lol!

Unfortunately my build doesn't running in the expected speed. Was too much hard to assembly and align tail gate with body/lens/glass

1st I glued glass in place with tail gate closed and aligned.

So, tail gate has own life and want to be opened in down position. Then I glued some wires to push it down and keep it closed.

Posted Image

I found a better adjustment for inner panel in place with tail gate opened. Then put epoxi glue, then I closed tail gate then used some tape to keep all close and aligned.

Posted Image

Tail gate didn't keep closed yet. So, I found a latch in inner panel and it was far to the body. I used 0,5mm styrene and ok!! Tail gate works now!!

I'm really tired, because I did all pre-assembly before paint job and all was fixed... But in final assembly are too much hard to put all together than pre-assembly.

I must confessed also. Isn't distraction/hobby... I did this in the same time was spent in 350Z polishing job and was very fun build.

Thanks to see.

I had the same issues with my tailgate, I added a piece of steel to the bottom edge of the tailgate, and a few earth magnets under the floor board, did the trick for me! Beautiful paint BTW, Black is always one of the hardest colors to get looking really good!

Merry Xmas Fellas!

 

After 11 months without put a finger in this build, yesterday I decided finish it.

 

I re-polished machined lips and painted scratchbuild intake tube and element.

 

Still need mirrors, wings, put brake lines in calipers, some detail and touch up before finishing.

 

I hope you like it and feel free to critics and comments.

Cesar, I knew that in time you would finish this beautiful Magnum with all the fine detail work you have put into this build. Seeing is like getting a Christmas present in its self. You and your family have a Merry Christmas.

Almost two years in!  Looks awesome.  I like the first post "fast and simple build".  

 

That is one great model - paint, details, quality of craftsmanship - it's all there.
