    The Big Post 2.0
    I've always said, "To have nothing to do, I always say busy!". As much as I enjoy building and see others post their accomplishments, I can't always keep up on the photo ops and posting, so it's easier to post all at once when there is more of a relax atmosphere......
    1970 Dodge Charger:  The Revell FnF kit bought at the Clemmons,Nc meet this past fall. Falls in line with the quality of the 68 and 69 Revell kits and I'm sure they got a winner when it hits the shelves.  Got the last back seat and a rear tail light panel with lenses from Missing Link when it was posted on the forum this past fall and used the hood from a Revell 69 Daytona and used MM Firery Orange and a flat black base to simulate the Factory Color of Burnt Orange  to complete.  Defintely plan to buy more for stock and NASCAR builds....



     
    1968 Chevrolet Chevelle
    A resin body that a friend gave  me.  Used the AMT 69 Chevelle for a donor. The second build I put a vinyl top on using masking tape.



     
    1968 Plymouth Belvedere
    another resin . didn't bother to open the hood but used spare parts from the AMT 69 GTX.



     
    US Army Jeep
    The Hogan's Hero Jeep kit. A nice diversion because I only had to use Olive Drab, Flat Black and Flat Aliminum....


     
    1956 Desoto Firedome
    Bought this kit and a another, 59 Dodge Adventurer, at a Farm Sale a few years ago. While my buddy was looking for a small tractor to cut his 4 acre yard, I was keeping a eye open for any kits.  Found the two in a wooden basket with old cowboy boots and other odds and end.  Thinking that no one else would care and pass over I kept a close eye and ear until bidding started.  I was thinking $20 while the owner decided to bunch up a few more items to that basket  and off the bidding went to the 40 and up range. Didn't win the bid but I did get with the buyer and offer $15 for both to which he gladly accepted and even threw in a free soda that my buddy had just come back from the concession stand with....that he bought to "sweeten" the deal.  Just a old Johan Promo kit with tinted green windows and a plain bottom plate...



     
    2016 Dodge Challenger R/T
    A coworker at the Dodge dealership gave me the kit because of lack of interest.  Since I had just bought the real deal the 1st of the year......why not? The kit was the AMT 2009 Challenger.  A little body work and mods to the grill and rear tail lights and the wheels/rims from the Revell 2013 Camaro (since they are more accurately represented for the 16 Challenger).  I call it the Mini Dodge to the real Dodge....



    The REAL Dodge....

    Definitely a Winner Circle finalist.
  12. satterwhite78 added a post in a topic 1963 Fireball Roberts Southern 500 winner   

    My dad often recalled being at the Charlotte race that day.  From his vantage point on the opposite side of the track he recalled seeing the fireball erupt and subsequent black smoke.  It wasn't until later of being announced that Roberts was involved that he knew it was far more serious than initially reported.  That by chance wouldn't be the same color that Leeroy Yarborough painted his #12 66 Charger sponsored by Jon Thorne would it?   Great Build.

  15. satterwhite78 added a post in a topic 69 AMC AMX Big Bad Blue   


    The engine was a left over johan. The engine bay quite possibly came from the AMT 66 Fairlane or Cyclone which didn't need any coaxing, a natural fit.  The chassis on the other hand was a much harder endeavor. Originally I wanted to use the AMT 67 mustang chassis, front and rear suspension was very detail and a almost dead on for an AMC undercarriage but the AMX interior tub just didn't work with the chassis donor and the chassis wheelbase is longer. I found a somewhat generic chassis plate with dual exhaust and the rear axle molded in as with the Johan chassis plate there is no exhaust. I removed about 1/16 in the middle of the chassis to correct the wheel base. After thinking about it I feel like the chassis choice kept more in line with the model overall instead of a over blown detail adventure.
    The engine paint on the other hand.......     Years back you could go into Advance Auto, CARQUEST, etc, etc...and find a can of AMC engine paint. Trying to get and find the turqoiuse metallic shade of AMC, other than order a can of AMC engine spray, is a feat with in itself.  I probably sent more in paint and purple power that what I have in the build..Lol. Of the AMC builds I have, none of them are the same shade. Most of the blocks start out with a testors light blue as a base coat with some type of metallic green over spray to get the color effect. Call me cheap!  I did find find a bottle on the clearance aisle at HL called  "Pebeo" Prisme Carabbean Blue  in a 45 ml bottle that has come the closest with the basecoat.
    Hope this answers some of your questions and truly appreciate all of you taking the time to look......Chuck
