I was cruising around Comp resins site this morning and I see they have released a resin 1971 Dodge Challenger pro stock kit

 

I just ordered a few resin hoods last week and this body was not on there at that time.

 

I now have a source to do a 1/25 scale Mopar  Missile Challenger kit

That would make a nice Dick Landy car to.

Sounds good.

I've been looking for a builder of an original MPC 1971 Challenger kit to do the Motown Missle car,,,,,with no luck.

 

I have there 1968-69 Charger funny car body and if this Challenger is even close to that quality, it'll be a knockout

It is odd they went with the 72 Challenger hood from the Landy kit instead of a 71 Motown Missile hood.

Still I love it and will be ordering one soon!

I ordered one of these just before X-mas and it arrived in 48 hours!  I couldn't friggin believe it especially just before X-mas.  It arrived on the 24th no less!

Anyway, the body is gorgeous.  Not a blemish of any sort on it.  The whole package (bumpers, lights, etc.) is of very high quality.  The only thing I don't care for is the hood.  The scoop is not for me and there are molded on hood pins (which should be easy to remove).  It does not include any chassis or interior components and Roger at Comp Resins really couldn't recommend a donor kit so I've still got that to figure out.  Once I do, I plan to build the M Missle.  If anyone can offer suggestions for a donor kit(s), I would appreciate it.

For what it's worth, I have purchased a number of bodies from Roger over the years and every single one of them has been top notch.

What would it take to convert this to the 70 Convertible kit??

I have the Pace car decals and would love to add that one to the projects box

 

Or does someone offer the conversion kit for the AMT 70 Convertible???

Ken

I used the Johan Cuda Chassis for the 71 Rod Shop Challenger I built from a Reliable Resin body.

It is a little simple compared to the AMT chassis but the Cuda kit has tons of great racing parts in it.

I wonder if one could just use the AMT interor tub and chassis ? I didn't even think about the Joahn cuda kit as a doner , I just assumed this body is based on an original MPC kit ??

 

maybe I better ask

 

 

 

I have plenty of the Johan Cudas and also several MPC 72-74 Challenger builtups if needed as well

 

I sure hope it's not based on the lindberg Challenger.

 

ps, Reliable resin lists a Missle Challenger type hood but with the reviews of service I am gun shy to go there

See how he is using the MPC Landy hood I would say it is MPC based.

I am Thinking a Billy Stepp Challenger may be in the wings for me,

OK, I had to do it. I dug out an MPC 1972 Landy Challenger body.

And did a test fit of both a Johan 71 cuda int tub and chassis as well as an AMT 1970 Chalenger int tub and chassis into an MPC body - and I think both could be made to work without to much difficulty . I think the best fit is combining an AMT interior tub and the Johan chassis .

 

Once I get my toy fund replenished I am going to order one of these .

 

Are the Stepp decals avail ? I saw a set of Ebay a while back for both the Demon and the Challenger but that was just a one time thing and I haven't seen them since + I didn't get them

I found a set for the Challenger some time ago on ebay.

I do not remember who the vendor was.

I have a set of Chuck's decals for the Demon and they are very nice.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I'm not familiar with any of these older kits so I guess I've got some work to do.
I think Comp Resins also has a Missle type hood scoop avail separately. I kind of wish Roger had made the hood with a cutout instead of with the scoop but I can work with it. Happy trails...

Any chance of the decals for the challenger as well ? I would like to have both actually. I already have an MPC 1971 Demon builtup I can use

There are flat hoods at harts parts that should fit this body with very little work.
