I am in no way attempting to hijack this thread, but I can offer some assistance with the many problems with this kit. I recently built the Dukes Charger and solved (for my purposes anyway) a lot of the very obvious problems with this kit. My build thread is in here, Page 6 about halfway down, titled 1/16th Dukes Charger. Please feel free to peruse the build photos and take any thing you need from them to build your car. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Good luck.
Beautiful work Jonathan!! I built a tribute '59 Impala convertible for a very close friend about a year ago. It was one of the most rewarding model building experiences I have ever had. I see him every so often and he always comments about how much time he spends looking at it and how he never should have sold that car! Hats off to you sir.
Just to update you all, last weekend I brought my GL to the MassCar show in Taunton Ma. I was pleasantly surprised to earn first place in the large scale class, as well as grab one of the masters awards for best Dodge. I also got to meet and talk to Mr. "Date Code" and Mopar guru, Steve Magnante. He took great interest in my GL and spent several minutes talking car guy stuff. He was also gracious enough to autograph my build sheet. I guess he was photographing Mopar models for an upcoming issue of Redline Dodge.com. Great guy to talk to and very down to earth. So needless to say it was a fantastic day. I got many great comments on my GL and made some new friends. I also grabbed an original 70's Revell Monroe Handler Mustang from the huge vendor area. I always wanted that kit in the 70's, but didn't have the skill to build it back then.
Unfortunately, I am having trouble loading pics from Fotki, all of the sudden, so no show pics. If I get it figured out, I'll post them. Take care all.
