I just found this through a link on Hemmings.com. I am completely blown away by this build! My model-building is pretty much limited to what comes in the box with maybe some commercially available photo-etched parts added. Unfortunately, my eyesight has gotten so bad in my old age that I don't do much building anymore, but I can sure enjoy watching you build this Cuda!

Bill, I'd say you're making quite a splash in the Mopar universe, here's a link to a mention about this baby over on Hemming's Blog!

Man, this thing is more real than my fullsize project cars! Probably with more detail too. Incredible to say the least.

Hi Ken, it is very kind of you to join just to leave a comment, are you a model builder?? this is an awesome forum to share with, look around and you will be blown away with the talent on here! this build is all of the things I have all ways wanted to try my hand at, the engine is my first time ever touching a mill,, and my first scratch built chassis as well, not sure I'm the one to do a tutorial, a real machinist would laugh at my common attempts, but I am having a great time learning new things and that is what a hobby is all about, and I'm a Mopar man to the bone, this build is one thing I see when I try and represent for us Mopar guys, thanks again

 

 

Hi Bill, Yes, I have been checking out other builds and yes, there are some great talented builders here. I am so glad, that one of your wishes to do something like this has come true. The outcome is really amazing. I believe most of us here are not anywhere close to being a machinist,  let alone own a lathe. so, your tutorial maybe very helpful to those of us that are new and that are wanting to attempt a similar project. I am sure the fellas here agree with me, no matter how you do it , it is the final outcome that truly matters.   :) bow_down_together-966.gif

 

Btw, I do build models, mainly AC 1/32 and some 1/48.  I had a 68 Roadrunner 383 car that I restored and was my daily driver, it was stolen and was never recovered, which sucks big time, so, to compensate for my loss, I started build Mopar car kits, mainly Roadrunners...lol. 

 

Best regards

 

Ken

hi Mike, unfortunately I'm not going to use a torsion bar set up on the front suspension, it will be a strut type, thanks

 

Very nice work!!!

thanks so much for the encouraging words Ken, they are truly humbling, you should share some of your builds with us, I know everyone would love to see them, sorry to hear about your Road Runner, that would be heart breaking for sure
