That's very nice looking Hemi Dart. Paint job is fantastic, so smooth and shiny. I like the engine details too, and the slight weathering even if I usually don't like it, but this just fits to my eye perfectly. Very nice build.

Thank you , Brother D ! Mutual admiration society here , buddy ! Your work speaks for itself , loud and clear !

Moon , it's the ' 57 street machine kit . The model is green and white on the box with that god awful scoop on it . The kit is an excellent one to build , only drawback , no hard top ! Wheels are not as deep as the ones in the Revell kit but certainly fit the bill for a variety of builds . Thanks for the kudos !

 

Thank you Donn.... I will have to pick one of them up.

Building tip for 68 Hemi Darts and Cudas ............ Omit front fender side marker lights. These cars had glass front fenders and hood and no side marker lights

It looks perfect from every angle. I love all the detail like the wire going to the Tac. Great job! That paint is fantastic as always Donn.  Thanks for sharing the pictures Doc.

Wow, amazing build Donn.  I've seen 1:1 show cars that don't have as nice of paint as your Dart does!  Top notch build, congrats.

I would seriously like to be able to see one of Donn's builds in person so I could study it for hours. Everything about it ROCKS!!

I like the very slight weathering ,that's the way I always build mine. I think this is how you take a basic build and hit it out of the park. Do you have any chassis shots????

You get a lot of mileage out of those straight pins.
