Very nice '70 Charger. This is the first time I've seen one with a Revell chassis underneath though.

Received my photo etched parts yesterday and here is what I've used so far. After I get the finial assembly done I will add the Charger , HEMI, Penstar, and R/T emblems on the sides. I also painted the side lights and the black rubber around the front bumper.

Brandon it was included in the eBay sale and it works very good with the resin body.

Will be adding decals that are something like these but for the 70 not 69 model year that these are for.

The grille detail is very nice. Just a small suggestion, find a small tip black magic marker and cover the little shiny spots. It will complete your nice work.

Maybe I missed it, is that the '68 Roadrunner chassis with new Round2 printed tires. The model is looking really nice.

What PE kit did you use? Although I got the revel Pro modeler kit in an unrelated trade, I was thinking of using the AMT RR or GTX for the running gear/frame. And the model is looking good!

Thanks Byron

Bob, yes the tires are from the new rereleased but the chassis is from the Revell Pro 69 Charger. I use these pictures to help find the small items like the little shiny areas and yea I will be marking them up thanks for pointing them out.


Michael, I think the detail between the 68 road runner chassis and the Charger are about the same. I used the 68 road runner chassis on my 70 road runner and it is a nice chassis. The PE came from the Model Car Garage

Thanks Jonathan.

Very nice foil work. This is hands - down the best build-up of a '70 Charger I have ever seen!

Did you get a photo etch grill? If so are those used to be the grill or is used as a painting template?

Looking great so far man
