Hi everyone. I'm a newcomer to the site.

I though of sharing pictures of my show winner Pro modeller 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger. I decided to go with the stock version, using the T5 Copper Poly body color coupled with black interior. The result is eye catching.

I dressed the engine with a lot of extra wirering. Without 'em, the engine bay looks very dull.

Compare to the MPC version, The revell / monogram Pro Modeler one is a LOT superior in quality and details.

Enjoy.. :)

Very nice work!


Thanks.

Was not an easy built. I had problems with the decals since it's an old kit. I had to paint the entire rear stripe. The decals cracked apart upon installing.

Superb build, if it's anything like the '68 Charger I built, it's not the easiest kit in the world to build, but you've done a great job on this one ...

Don't be discouraged, Ben. We all had to start somewhere. Stick with this forum for a while, and once you get the basics down we'll teach you the tricks to becoming a better builder in no time. ;)

All kidding aside, I know that kit is leagues above anything MPC ever produced, but I have to wonder if the folks at Revell knew it could ever turn out this nice. Obviously the paint work and engine detailing will capture most people's attention, but that interior shot is incredible. Take a bow, you deserve it.

PS What's your secret for detailing the hard lines on the chassis and the wiring on the firewall so neatly?

Very cool looking-the chassis is a real eye-catcher.
