    Look forward to seeing the Roaring Rat updates! Seen it run loads at the Hot Rod Drags at Shakey, great car as are all the gassers in the gasser circus.

    I'm hoping to start a replica of this 59 Impala, belongs to friend here in the UK, awesome car, running blown BB Chevy, I have the monogram 1/25 kit & even a set identical wheels complete with slicks, just gotta get a Big Block motor & blower to use, thinking the Revell/Monogram 70 3-1 chevell as it has the right scoop intake.
    Some more gasser pics from Shakespear County raceway here in the UK,

    Stunning models there Yuri, the paint finish is flawless! had to do a double take to see they are just models and not real cars, very nice indeed.

    Wow, that is a stunning build, really nice indeed, lovely paint & bare metal foil work.

    I have 59 to build, hopefully as a replica of this one here in the UK, belongs to my friend, blown BBC, runs low 11's possibly 10's on the strip.

    Hi Guys, sorry for late reply, thanks again for the nice comments and good to see two other brits on here !

    Trying to get stuck in to my other models now, but with Christmas around the corner like next week then myself & my girlfriend will be busy with both my 10yr old son & her 10 daughter who are in hyper excited mode already bless them, great fun though, so yes I hope to put glue to plastic and paint to brush to plastic hopefully over the xmas period, should be the 69 dick landy Charger I started about 2 yrs ago.

    Hey Darren & Guy, this was my much modified 1973 Rover P6 V8 I restored but sadly has to sell earlier in May this yr, great fun, 3.9 heads, 5 spd manual, Cragar 7x15" alloys, sprayed myself in my single garage in good old cellulose, one day I'll build another in the same style but in B5 Mopar Blue as nod to Mopars!
    Cheers Damian

    Many thanks for all your great comments guys I remember the original Monogram release way back in 79 with the red decals only!
    I saw the black that one Yong Iron built a while ago, this gave me inspiration to build this one using the Pro-Touring theme.

    Next build is too finish the Dick Landy 69 Charger I started a while ago, also staying with 68-69 chargers, I think I'll build one similar to my profile pic, I have two sets of alloys from the Monogram yellow 55 Ford pick up and the orange 69 Camaro, both original releases from 78~79 I think, one set for the 69 in bronze & one set for the black 68 (Profile pic) this is the Bronze version I like, awesome looking car, pic of my small but unbuilt stash of kits sitting in my under stairs cupboard!
    Cheers for now & thanks again!.

    Many thanks Roy, I try to get all my model cars to have the right stance & decent wheels, I thinks its the make or break of a finished model, yes very pleased with the interior as exposed with the T-Top option.

    Hi Ben, the decals are with the kit, its the 3-1 version, stock, drag or street,, there's also a set of blue ones as an option, these would look great with a light met blue or silver paint work, equally the gold/bronze I've used would look great with met gold or even black finish paint, I think the factory finish was red & orange, I know my real one had this combo before I repainted it & chose the dark grey/silver graphics, I guess it was an option for these from the factory ?

    Cheers guys Damian

    Finished 1/24 Revell/Monogram 79 Z28 Camaro, Pro-Touring
    Hi Guys, finally finished this Camaro, gone for the Pro-Touring look with Wheels, Tyres, Seats, Brake rotas, steering wheel & seat decals pinched from Tamiya's 1/24 Porsche 911 GT2 Road version. Paint is Ford Cardinal red from auto rattle can, several coats, wet sanded after 3 coats, 2 further the left & polished. Very pleased with the look, last pic is my real 79 Z28 I sold back in 2002, cheers Damian

    Sweet! Love the Cragar rims :-)

    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
