In Topic: "Not another General Lee?!

05 February 2014 - 02:51 AM

Stunning build!  Great to see a 1/16 MPC General Lee built how it should be !   I had several originals as a 11 yr old kid when they first made it over here into the UK back in 1981, how I wish I stil had them an unopened as you have!

 

Your build thread was a great inspiration too!

 

Anyway I have the re-release now and like you will be modifing to build it properly and may buy another to build as a standard 69 Charger.

You certainly set the standard...Well done, superb model of a great TV Automobile icon and 60's Mopar muscle car.

 

Cheers Damian

In Topic: Revell 71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda, with Cragars

29 April 2013 - 10:44 AM

Hi Guys, Firstly sorry for my late reply, have not been near my PC over the weekend, secondly WOW ! was not expecting so many really nice replies and comments, big thank you to you all, much appreciated indeed :-)

 

The paint actual colour is Rover Opaline Metallic Green with a laquar top coat. I wasnt sure at first but now seeing the end result, it really does work with the car and the black rear graphics, white/black interior.

 

The rear Cragars are from an after market but cannot think what he brand was called, they did the goodyear polygas tyres with it, about 3pairs of wheels and tires.

The front narrow Cragars are from another supplier that came with the narrow tires and wide slicks for which I'll use on my 69 Charger Dick Landy project, there is a thread I've started but yet to finish the model.

 

Anyway heres some pics of the 70 T/A Challenger for Gene and a couple of the Charger.

 

Chees guys, will get some more mopars finished & get em posted! Regards Damian

 

BTW: This is my real english muscle car project, just rebuilt the engine, its 1972 Rover P6 3500 V8, buick engine, I fitted the Cragars, bodywork in Red Cellulose, I painted n prepped two panels at a time in my single garage, labour of love ..I love it!
