    Modern Cars

    Absolutely agree with you here! I’m a HUGE Mopar fan & would buy every variant a kit company would come out with! I know many, many more modellers/Mopar enthusiasts who would too! The 1:1 guys with real cars would also love to have replicas made of their 1:1s. As for diecast.... Auto Art are coming out with the Hellcat Widebody/RT etc very soon.... but not exactly cheap/costing 3-4x your average kit. Also on the Hellcat motor... there’s a guy on Instagram, JPS, who’s working on the HC motor & it looks BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH good.... price though isn’t cheap... probably the same cost of your average whole kit!

    67 CORONET

    It’s a Mopar.... it’s got a Hemi..... dual turbos.... what’s not to like/love?! Sweet build, DC 👍🏽👍🏽
  3. In my experience BMF will not adhere to flat paint/s like it does to gloss paint/s. Either use the Micro Foil adhesive as suggested or lightly wet sand off the flat black on the trim, leaving a smooth surface for the BMF to “stick” to. Cheers.
  4. The other issue with the strobe decal is it is too long. I’m in the process of finishing up my AAR & whilst applying the decal noticed it was too long for the body & needs to be trimmed to fit.
  5. Yep you’re right there, about slight differences with the torque boxes. I fabricated them for my 68 because the 70 kit hadn’t been issued when I built my 68. I have at least 2 more chargers ( 69 & 70 ) to build & im thinking about buying some new carbs from Fireball for the Hemi. They look awesome & extremely well detailed 👌🏽 Joseph does some very good work/casting 👌🏽👌🏽 Cheers 👍🏽
  6. Will enjoy seeing your builds, John. Built a few Chargers myself, Hemi/Non-Hemis, so I thought I’d give you a heads-up, since you’re going with the Hemi in this 68. The chassis needs torque boxes, all Hemi optioned B-bodies ( most others too ) all had torque boxes. I noticed you’re not using the Hemi on the 70, your other WIP, maybe use that chassis for this 68 & use this 68’s chassis for the 70 😉👍🏽
  7. Beautiful! Well done! Have built the DBS & have another/with the same after-market wheels. Just love this model year Astons 😍👌🏽
  8. I find the best way to learn is to educate yourself... Why don't you try all of those things & find out for yourself?
  9. Why don't you try Zero Paints?? All they need is the colour code. Or try a local auto-paint supply shop, same deal, provide the code & they can mix you a batch. ( in most cases they can get the code themselves, if they have a decent computer sourcing system for paint codes ) 👍
  10. Good job mate! Seen the exact same car today on myorning cardio jog... Licence SRT426!!
  11. I'd get either the Charger or Challenger, if they were sold here in Aus' 😊👍 The 300C is but I've heard it's going to be dropped from the line up here & replaced by the Charger 😊😊 On another note, while on my morning jog up to the beach this morning I was stopped in my tracks by an 2010 SRT Challenger... Licence plate SRT426!! First one I've ever seen here in Australia ( Newcastle NSW ) up close & personal!! I want the Hellcat!!
  12. Different horses for different courses... Seeing as I'm a Mopar fan, old or new, I'd buy a crate of them! The Hellcat Charger too!
  13. Yeh I think Tamiya's chrome will lay out to dark... But... Are you going to "rust" them? If so its not a deal breaker... If not then I'd go with Alcad 😉👍
