Thanks everybody, by the way;Larry, I'm Nikos dad.

 

I have done something with the Charger finally. I painted the valve covers black, as they should be and painted also the front cover and water pump. I made the fuel line of aluminium wire, as it is done sometimes in 1:1 race cars too. The ends of the fuel line will be made of Pro Tech braided line with aftermarket electric fuel pump and filter.

 

Its been nice to build this once again, there is just too little time and too much to do. I try to get the Charger progress again.

Hi all

 

Back again, I got my Dodge finished after all.

 

Dale, you are more than welcome to Finland with both of the Fords next summer (now we are having -17 Celsius degrees). :(

 

John, yes you definitely right about the fuel lines. We are also using braided in our 1:1 Stock Eliminator Chevelle, but I think they used to use rubber lines in the early days.

 

The body is painted Tamiya TS spray paints and clear coated. I tried polishing the paint for the first time ever, and it wasnt so difficult. The result looked much better than without polishing. Next time I'll be more experienced.

There were some fit issues in the model (for example with the front bumper), but mainly ok.

 

Here are so some pics of the finished model:

Hi all

 

Its been a while since the last update of the Dodge, but now I try to find the time to finnish it.

 

First, thanks for all of the supportive comments guys!

 

Here is some pics of the current situation: The engine is assembled, I installet the ignition wires and fuel lines, interior is also ready.

The body has primer it and I think I'll paint it white tomorrow with Tamiya spray paint.

By the way, Niko's Thunderbolt has stalled because the lack of the interior paint...
