Very Sharp! The subtle weathering looks really good! I have this kit------in fact this is the first model I ever won on eBay 11 years ago. I keep seeing it occasionally, and I'm tempted to build (actually rebuild) it and stick a 426 Hemi in it! :D

I'm pretty sure the windshield surrounds were black rubber and not chrome.

I think it's pretty cool, regardless of Harry's nitpick. Besides, they don't look chrome to me...just sun baked. ;)

Well Ive just looked at the pics and harry is sort of right they should be black rubber but I dont see any chrome trim !!!

 

And I just spotted the indicater is missing from the drivers side!

Nice build on the Dodge the weathering is a nice touch. Do you have plans for a trailer to go with it?

That would rock.  I made the engine in it look more like a 340 6pack, but more muscle would really be cool.  Doobie you did a very nice job on yours.
