Started this 3 wks ago when the 70.5 camero started giving me fits on final assembly

Lightly lowered front and rearAttached File  IMG_3523.JPG   86.84KB   0 downloads

Making side skirts to hide the frame rails

Thinned wheel wells and cut out top of inner well to accept those meaty BFG's

Opened hood scoop and added bottom plate, also filled joint between scoop and hood

Can't remember where those wheels came from?? but they looked very Moparish

Still looking for the proper ga. wire for plugs?? 

Enjoy... should be in Under glass very soonAttached File  IMG_3525.JPG   70.59KB   0 downloads

Love it. My first car was a 70 340 challenger pistol grip and plum crazy. I will build one some day when I can do it some justice.

Yours looks great.

Mate, that looks pretty darn wicked. B)  Looooove the stance.

This is the latest (been out for a while) kit from Revell? I've held off from getting one because of the slab sided look, but yours looks pretty good. :huh:

Did you pull the sides in a bit at the bottom? Or maybe it's just a trick of the lighting...Looks great regardless, nice job. :)

Is it the 1/24 or 1/25 kit ? Those wheels are motor wheel spyders. A rare vintage mag. I would like to know what kit they are from as well.

The streetburner kit I have is 1/24. Looks more accurate to me than the 1/25. Seems like some of the newer revell 1/25 look a little off to me. What gives?

Ok ....

She's out of body and paint and ready for try #2Attached File  70 challenge.JPG   100.7KB   0 downloads

Gonna let 'er dry out for a couple of days then panel lines and clear

Just as an aside,.. I have been looking over older post regarding this Revell model and have found alot of comments regarding "slab sided, thick castings, improper molding of this and that" parts.

Looking at this kit (with a layman's eye) the side panels do tuck in nicely and the side panel moldings are incredibly thin, I went thru in one spot on my first run down scribing panel lines!! The front and rear valance joints are in the right spot.... Anyway just sayin'..... maybe Revell tweeked the tooling btween 2008 and 2010??

I like to build my models the way I would customize them if I won the lottery!?! And I'm not a

100% repro factory stock guy.

So all that being said Hope you like the build

Gotta snow day today!!
