Went to Hobby Lobby today and picked up a 1/16 scale Dukes Charger to put together before the end of the year,,,,,,of course I will be tricking it out,,,,,,,I need some nice heavy slicks for it tho...I will be dropping it into the weeds and beefing up the engine

 

The biggest problem is the car is too narrow,,,,I have to widen the rear and front fenders out for a total of 1/2"
I sliced this pristine body on top of the fenders and inserted a sliver of .40 styrene. That in turn raised the backlight and trunk some,,,I will use some filler to adjust the outside of the fender to level it out. This will permit me to use wide slicks and reduce the frame mods, and it looks tuffer this way :P
