Here's my '71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda that painted in HOK chrome yellow.  I thinned the back of the grille out and glued in some SS mesh from MCG.

Nice Cuda, but you missed correcting the front fender panel lines.

Thanks folks.  Front fender panel lines??  I don't know what you mean, Lee.  The front end is stock kit height, Harry, and I agree that it sits too high.  I think the whole car sits too high, but that's what came out of the kit.

Thank you.  What's the billboard?  That decal out back?  I didn't want it.

...Jim,  

you took your time to finish the Cuda - why hurry to make pictures ;) ?

 

Over all, it looks screamin yellow! like the wiring. If you want to make the sidemarkers a little bit realistic, first paint them with silver (or BMF) and then use Tamiya clear paint orange or red. Perhaps, you will try it ;)

Thank Dominik.  You're right - when I was doing the BMF trim, I should have covered the side marker lights.

every single cuda kit ive done or seen has hood fitment issues because the motor sits a tad too high and when you put the air cleaner on, its too much.

I love the color, and the model looks great!
