Which will save us having arguments about "when those wheels were introduced" or "the X23 Big Block didn't have the underhand flange monkey grubbler valve blades until 1981".

 

^ their you are and that's the exact reason, no need to question anything.

 

Yep, when I did my 1981 themed build, that was a bit a pain in the butt. A lot of research was involved on the part of the builder. Particularly when it came to wheels. But, there is nothing wrong either, with challenging the builder to learn about automotive history.

I'd like to get in on this one with a 69 Nova SS. I've been away for about a year so hopefully this will be the kick I need to get back in full swing of things.

Might as well start now Tim. By my clock, you and anyone else east of the Atlantic are approved to start.

 

August, Nice choice, looking forward to seeing this built. Pretty big for 1/24, maybe look for parts in 1/20 and see how it looks.

Well since it's January 1st in here (Now 9:45PM) I started building my '69 Charger Daytona. Well, I can say that AMT's kit definitely has a lot to improve, so I'm not running out of things to do. Parts don't fit very well together and there is a lot of stuff to clean up and ejector marks to fill. It's not the worst possible kit, though, and I believe that it can be built into a nice looking model...Let's see...

 

Here's the kit:

96f138e0-7232-4eee-9fab-39ae2c74b631.jpg

 

I started by gluing the nose on place. I can't say that the fitment is good, since there are a couple of gaps that I need to fill. The fender extension parts don't look very good, either, but I hope that with some styrene and putty I can get them good. I'll remove the seam between the nose and body, since I want it to be like one piece. Next step with this is styrene to fill the gaps and lots of putty...

On the underside there is a massive gap that I want to fill with styrene.

Then I removed exhaust pipes from the rear axle. My build will use a NASCAR Style exhaust with exits on both sides before rear tires. The rear axle needs some sanding and other work before I can paint it.

Engine block halves were glued together, too. Tamiya's Liquid Glue worked well on here.

Spoiler parts had huge ejector pin marks... I've seen large ejector marks before, but these were extremely deep. I already put the first round of putty to cover them, but I'm quite sure that they'll need more putty as well (The picture is before any putty).

This is where I am at right now. I'll continue tomorrow with some bodywork.

Thanks Gene, I am going to do some research and comparison to other kits to find out. The 442 was a 455ci engine, but the Ralley 350 that I will do carried a 350ci with around 310 hp, I believe it was called a 350 Rocket.

using textured spray paint for the interior, the body finally got some clear so it's currently drying for a few days.
