You know I couldnt leave this one alone ;D! After stripping it down to bare metal and drilling a few holes for the antennas and spotlight, I repainted the body using Duplicolor Generic Gloss White after priming the body with etching primer and filler primer. Interior was sprayed with duplicolor HotRod primer. What you see here is a pretty simple repaint with all of the body trim being correctly painted. Only additions to the MM model are the spotlight, mirror undermount strobes and antennas. Decals are my own custom creations. It's amazing how a little detail painting can turn a "toy" into a great looking model.

I really don't like the looks of the Charger, especially after having seen the concept car Chrysler showed us all and then pulled the rug out from under us and gave us, well... the current Charger... :rolleyes:

But I have to admit it makes a cool cop car. B)

Looks great!
Have you sized up the Lindberg steel wheels on it yet? I hate that motormax keeps sticking the wrong wheels on the police car line.

That's pretty cool. The Charger has much better body lines now. A good plastic kit would be most welcome.
