Here is a model I finished not long ago using Revel's 68 Charger.   The model went together fine and I finished it with Scalefinishes OEM 661 Dark Green Metallic.   I did find out on GraveyardCarz that Dodge painted the black area then masked off and covered over the green.  However I did it backwards, so next time I guess I will paint in the correct order.  The bright work is all all Alclad

 

Thanks for any comments.

Looks great, the colour really suits it. That's a very nice, clean build.

 

The only thing I had trouble with on that kit was the tail panel and rear lamps, which I had a difficult job getting lined up straight for some reason. Yours looks fine though.

Sorry, but the bumble bee stripe on a 1/1 - 1968-70 Dodge Charger was a decal not painted on

 

BUT, The bumblebee stripe on a 1970 Challenger as an example WAS painted on and before body color was applied

Gtx6970. You are correct, and the model does with a decal, but it looks like a sticker, so I painted, however point taken.

I love the car. Is it my monitor or does that green appear olive to anyone else?
