    Beautiful work, Curt.  Love those GT-40's.

     Thanks again for the comments guys.
    Thanks Kevin, it was your two Chargers that inspired me to move this one up to the top of the to-do list.  I fashioned the exhaust tips from aluminum tubing, as I didn't care much for the ones in the kit.
    Yup you are right, it is spray painted.  The paint I used is actual engine paint (enamel, wish it was laquer though) by Herbs Parts.  I had found it at the Mopars In The Park show in Farmington, MN earlier this year.  I hadn't ever heard of their paint before, but I picked up a can of it and am pretty happy with it.  It'll last me a lifetime too as it's a 12oz can.  I want to say I only sprayed two coats as it seemed to cover very well. 
    Model Master Dark Bronze Metallic. I love this color.

    Nice job, sure looks pretty in that color.

    Thanks a bunch guys.
    I agree, it's a little bit higher than I'd like but I just went with it.  I guess the owner cranked the torsion bars Lol.
    I assembled everything that needed to be turqouise, then painted it all as one unit.

    1968 Dodge Charger R/T
    Finally, I got another build finished today.  Paint is Model Master Dark Bronze Metallic.  Had to adjust the rear suspension to get the tires lined up in the wheelwells, and spaced them out a bit too as the rear track is really narrow oob. Speaking of tires, they are AMT pad-printed units.  All in all a really good kit, though I did have some issues with the front valence/grille fit and a little with the hood as well.

    That's a clean, and great, box stock build.  That silver looks good on it.

    Ahhh..now I understand the issue.  Not sure why it did that.  I'll have to remember to watch for that when I build my other one.  If you enjoyed how the Chargers went together, you'll like building the Daytona as well....it's a good kit.

    Wow you are off to a great start.  Beautiful paint.
  12. bogger44 added a post in a topic 68 Mustang - a disappointment   

    Sorry to hear of all the problems you encountered, Kevin.  Still, you turned it into a pretty darn good looking build.  Man, those Torque Thrust's and Polyglas tires really set it off, excellent choice!  As for the front end problem you encountered, was it leaving a gap in between the fenders and inner fenders?  I've built two of these and experienced this problem on both.  The only way I could cure it was by adding in some evergreen to fill the gap.  Oh, and off topic here, but when I had commented on your sweet '68 Chargers I remember you saying you'd be looking forward to whenever I'd build mine.  Well, I've been plugging away at one and finally getting close to finishing it, soon I hope Lol.

    Absolutely love the show. Been a great season so far, but things happen so fast now I kinda miss the slower build-up of events that took place in earlier seasons.  And I agree that even though it is so wrong, since they are Aunt and nephew, Jon and Daenerys need to share some "quality" time together.  Won't have to wait much longer for that to happen.....   But hey, at least they don't know they're related yet Lol.

    I like your take on this kit, Mike.  Nice work!  Oh, and thank you for fixing the the decal, that upward slant drives me nuts!  That little fix makes such a huge improvement in my eyes.

    Love this build, Chuck!
