'68 Dodge Dart
Posted 09 May 2012 - 02:06 AM
I have been reading this forum for few years now, but since this is the first model I post here, I'll briefly tell you who i am.
I'm 38 year old man from Finland and I did build dozens of model cars as a teen in 80's and 90's. Then I took a 15 year break from hobby because of other hobbies (1:1 cars etc.)
Started again few years ago.
This Dart is Revell's Mr'Norms Dart. Mostly box stock, but with aluminium air cleaner, Morgans pre-wired distributor, tires from AMT '66 Cutlass and wheels + hubcaps from Revell '68 Charger

Looks good as far as I can tell - terrible pics for me.
You need to put your last name on your posts.
I just added my last name, thanks for pointing that out (I did read instructions, but forgot last name)
Sorry about the bad pics. :/ I'll try to take new ones if I ever find the time to do it (family, house, work, 1:1 cars....)

I love the sleeper look - especially when it's all dark and mean looking. Good looking paint job and great details in the engine bay.

As you can tell from this and the other cars I posted, I love sleepers Steelies and dog dish caps are the way to go for me...
I'm a motorhead and very much into older american cars (especially muscle cars). I do try to attend every show, meet, swap and drag event held nearby.
I guess my current "hobby car" tells you more. This is my current 1:1 pride and joy
Originally 6 + manual, swapped in a lame 305/350 combo few years ago, but I do have that 400hp killer sbc in the garage waiting for some more parts and assembly. Then we have a sleeper... lol
Yes, I do have few Jimmy Flintstone '72 ElCamino bodies in my stash as well as few amt '72 Chevelle and amt '68 Camino kits as donors. Will build them as soon as feel I'm good enough.
My previous US car was not a sleeper though (but it did have steelies...)
Yes, I do have few amt B/M Camaro kits as well waiting...
