What '69 Charger parts are you looking for?

Thanks Russell and Carl!

 

This is the FULL decal sheet for the HUG.  Hmmm...decisions, decisions.

This was in the Lindberg Little Red Wagon kit.  I think I'll use it with the HUG.

Oh yeah!!!  I'll paint it up and display it under the HUG.

Thanks Joe!

 

I got the body foiled today.  There's more foil needed on here than I thought there would be!

The grille has been detailed with The Detailer black wash.

Thanks guys!  This is a cool subject, but the kit itself is so-so with a low parts count.

 

The chassis is nearly complete.  I am considering raising the front suspension for a more nose up attitude.

I assembled the kit headers.  I had to shorten one side about 1/8th of an inch to match the other side.

I repainted the body with Testors 1244 Gold Metallic enamel.  I was amazed at how fast it dried to the touch!

After about an hour of measuring and masking, I painted the body  with Model Master #2921 Classic Black.

After painting the resin bumpers with the Classic Black, I shot them with several coats of Alclad II Chrome paint.

I know, I know, I know...  I do appreciate the info, Fred!  But, when I compare the AMT engine block with the Revell Mustang Mach I engine block and they are the same size, then to me, they are the same size big block engine.  I also used what was in the box for engine parts since I can't be bothered ordering pieces for a so-so kit like this Cougar.  If the correct pieces were in the kit to begin with, then that would be a different story.  I am making do with what I have and what I have here is not what I would call a very accurate kit to begin with...just look at the chassis with its GM style front inner fenders!  Not accurate.
