OK, many have been done, and many are better than this, but here are a few not so great pics of my version. Hope to put a few more shots up later.

Thanks guys. Chassis/engine pics to come, accidentally deleted all of those so must redo.

'Hippie Dude": Yes, that's the MK Challenger kit. Officially my least favorite kit ever.

I never saw a review of this kit and though I have opened mine, I never really checked it out... are there any problems with the kit? Yours came out really nice.

Johnbuzzed: Aw heck, maybe I'm being too picky. It just seemed a little too "simple" for lack of a better term. Never built any FCs that weren't Revell or Monogram, so it was just different. When I get the chassis pics up maybe it will show, maybe not.

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Hey Dragin70's. So is there anything bad I need to know about this kit man? The stance looks pretty good man is that how it comes out of the box or did ya mod it mate? I know with the Revell kits you have to lower them. Just curious man because I want to build this car dude

Looks good. I started one of this car and had major decal issues so I got disgusted and shelved it .

Floppers Rule

And I'm not bashing , just making a gentle suggestion
but just as an fyi

neither car pictured here used the chassis style in the MK challenger funny car.

The Johan challenger is a more accurate choice.

Johan on the left - MPC / model king version on the right .

Thanks all for comments.

Gtx6970: I'm not offended at all, actually, that is a big part of why I didn't like this kit. It was a little hard to get motivated using what I knew was the wrong chassis. I used the kit chassis and built the car, but I have the intention of mating up my body (which I am very pleased with) with the correct chassis in the future.

HippieDude: Oh yes mods are necessary. Doghouse modified to fit over linkages at blower hat among others. Seems like every tin is a major pain.

Cool, the only problem is that Johan kits are hard to come by here in OZ. Would the new Judge GTO chassis be the right one?

Cheers
