i have heard the old saying " alcohol is fer drinkin, gas is fer warshin' parts, and nitro is fer racin".... i say do whatcha want!!! i have 2 reletively ( well 1 now) rare kits that i paid top coin for, and promptly opened them. I thought the seller was gunna ###### his skivvies!! One is the old AMT 1962 Mercury Meteor custom series, and the other was the origional MPC L.A. Dart. I plan to build the Mercury sometime before i die, and right now, i really don't have immediate plans for the L.A. dart.

i just took a gander at mine too, and didn't find any issues. Maybe a bad batch?? might see if Model King Dave is aware of this, and maybe see about getting a replacement body??

looks great!!! love the motor setup

I wanted to get this model done in a hurry before i lost interest,(which is frequent for me!!)hence the lack of plumbing and wiring. I really wanted to do all that, but it would have added another MONTH to the build. Sometimes, simpler is better for me. I did however, have to shoehorn that Hemi in there!!!
Thanks for the compliments!!!!

Very nice, Chris!! I really like the look. Can we get a chassis shot??

Raul- the chassis is the perverbial "weak link" with this car, and on that note, most all my models. It is all flat black. Frame, front & rear ends, suspension. Besides, i still need to complete the exaust, not much to see under this toilet!!! :lol:
