Attempting to duplicate the odd bronze colors Plymouth used in 1968-69, mostly 95% testors copper and a slight mix of testors brass. What do you think? Was this worth the attempt? what interior colors should i pick out of the 2 cans? you pick!

Using this as inspiration for detail... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1969-PLYMOUTH-GTX-440-4-Spd-s-Matching-Frame-Off-Resto-Heavily-Documented-/190808937109?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item2c6d195295#ht_26321wt_1165 dude that plymouth in the ebay ad is the best man, driving that is just dangereous around certain places not because of the car but because people will steal parts of it! or the whole car!

A little copper for the bronze, but it does replicate the copper metallic used by most Chrysler divisions nicely.

 

For the interior, I'd recommend either a tan or black interior. I found that Testors Interior Tan over white primer, with some flat light tan on the accents comes very close to the tan interior Chrysler was using in the late 1960s.

 

So far looking very good.

I think you nailed it. Looks just like the Turbine Car.

Here's my attempt a few years ago...converted the GTX to a Roadrunner convertible..I used Duplicolor but yours looks better for some reason.

Just a tad TOO brassy, but it's still a nice color.

Model Masters makes a Dark Bronze that's a Mopar color. I painted a '67 Coronet with it. But, I had to strip it when the clear (Tamiya) I used over it changed the color drastically. This was what it looked like before I shot the clear over it.

It's close, but here's the T5 and T7. A black and white int would look good in it also.

Love the color! I think you hit it dead on! I agree maybe a Black and Tan two tone interior?
