  1. It took a while, but I finally got this one finished. Only the second finished Tamiya kit I’ve done, and it went together pretty good. A lot of detail that ends up covered in the end, but I’m pretty happy with it. Painted Tamiya TS-60 Pearl Green. I wanted to get away from red/yellow/black that most Ferrari’s seem to be. Done box stock. I didn’t really enjoy all the masking that comes with this kit, but it worked out. Planning on doing the FXX as well, once I’m back to work and can afford another Tamiya kit!
  2. Thanks! Yeah, I’m a bit of a MoPar nut. I bought my first when I was twentyish, about 17 years ago (a ‘66 Plymouth Sport Fury) and been there ever since. Prior to that I had a few Chevies and Nissans, and Dad was a Ford guy for a long time. But I got so tired of the constant fixing, even on low mileage vehicles. I’ve had Dodges with over 400,000 kms that ran and drove perfectly. So I stick to what works for me!
  3. Thanks everyone! The carbs are from Fireball Modelworks, he makes awesome stuff!
  4. Not a super productive year, but I got some out onto the shelf! ’70 Dodge Super Bee ’69 Dodge Charger ’67 Plymouth GTX ‘09 Dodge Challenger ’70 Plymouth GTX ‘69 Dodge Daytona ‘71 Plymouth Duster ’70 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda
  5. dwc43- I’m not particularly concerned about if I do a non factory colour for the elastomeric bumpers, good info to know, but I tend to just go with whatever strikes me at the time! I’ve heard people talk about using guitar strings for stuff, but I’ve never tried it. I don’t have any, so next time I guess.
  6. Ah, learn things every day! I’m going off a picture I found online, so I guess the car had been updated!
  7. I can’t decide between chrome bumpers/grille or colour. I’m going with bronze exterior. Thoughts? I’ve decided to do a bit more detailing then I generally do, so I scratched a voltage regulator and ballast resistor, and I’m going to try to wire everything up as it should be (charging and ignition systems), as well as brake lines off the booster. Should be a learning experience!
  8. The more I look at what paints I have on hand, the more I like the bronze! Spent some time building an ignition module, tiny bits, and hard to get a good picture with my phone! Ingot some primer down, and found all the spots I need to smooth out, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
  9. One of the few common MoPars I don’t have on the shelf. I figured I’d practice cutting and scratch building on this before I cut up my JoHan ‘66 Fury. I attached the front panel, and had to extend the drivers side a bit to match the fender, and add the chrome strip to both sides. I removed the overflow? tank and battery, and am in the process of filling the holes. I’ll add some detail to the firewall, and call it good for primer. The plan is to stick with the 440 six pac, though I’m not sure if I’ll keep the auto or go with a stick (the ‘70 GTX/Superbird engine fits perfectly). The kit 440 auto was already built and painted, but if I use the stick shift 440, and can use a Fireball Modelworks six pac set up. Big decisions... I don’t know about colours yet, thinking bronze or copper, since I don’t have a build those colours yet.
  10. Thanks! Alas, there’s no sun here this time of year. Slightly less snowy is the best it been so far. Maybe one day.....
  11. Might as well throw some of mine on here.
  12. Thanks everyone! Tommy124- Yes, the blue is very dark, and I don’t have a proper photo booth or anything, just a roll of paper taped to a shelf and my phone camera. There isn’t any exhaust, just open headers! What’s the point in driving a Charger if people can’t hear you coming?
  13. One of my favourite muscle cars, I have a few ‘69-69 Chargers and Daytona’s, but nearly all have 440’s, so I figured I needed a Hemi in the pack. It’s a little off stock, with the Mags and hood, but who could resist hot rodding a Charger, just a little bit? Painted Tamiya Dark Blue (rattle can), the paint laid down amazing right from the can, so a little wet sanding and polishing really brought it to life! White interior and headliner (which I usually don’t bother painting), with foil where it’s needed. The white tail stripe was a bit of a pain. It’s just a wee bit too long, so I had to cut it along the trunk panel lines and trim some out. The Hemi is plumbed and wired, with Fireball Modelworks Carter carbs (love his stuff!). The rims are from the ‘68 Dick Landy Charger (I think). All in all, one of my better builds I think. Looks great sitting on the shelf anyways!
  14. Alright, all finished with this one! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I did miss filling in the holes in the chassis for the exhaust, but I’m fine with that. Final pics over in Under Glass.
