  1. The 71/72 Chargers C pillars have the slant as seen on the box. The 73/74 Chargers have the lazy L slant. Quite possibly you got a unintentionally incorrect package 73/74 body...
  2. Wow! Seeing your build took me back almost 50 years. It was a great kit, a fun build and a model that anyone who has a love for this hobby and cars needs in their collection. Fantastic job!
  3. An Alternate Timeline presented......Petty and Plymouth negotiations stall trying to get Petty to return to the Mopar fold. Ford catches wind of such and doubles down on factory support. Other team owners cry foul and Corporate sponsorship of race teams is a new frontier that ignites funding war that arrives 10 to 12 years early. With this new development, Petty Enterprises seizes the opportunity when approached by STP for sponsorship without knowledge of the Ford proposal and a loop hole in the Ford contract on Primary Sponsorship. Or in other words: What if.... The Chassis is that of a JRSalvinos Charger. While having 3 builds going simultaneously back early this summer, I mistakenly glued one chassis in the wrong hole thus making the wheel base longer and unusable for the Charger. Glued so well that I could not separate without destroying the chassis, I set aside the kit. Then it dawned on me that I might be able to use another body/make. Definitely did not want to trash a kit so off to the parts box. Knowing that 1970/71 would be a transitioning to truck trailing arm, I was beginning to feel like I just might luck out till I found a Revell 70 Torino body. The 70 Revell body was already prepped and primered for a race car project that got sidetracked. I came across a resin flat hood and extra grill that long ago picked up and tossed in the parts box. Since I had quite a few #43 decal sheets, all white pinstriping on the Torino came from the JRS decal with some splicing and overlapping. The 429 was an extra from a Polar Light kit. The engine bay cross member and hoop had to be modified to accommodate the Ford behemoth. Other than that a much taller back panel separating the interior from the trunk was required. Also added are some of the WIP pics.
  4. Whew! If Gramdma finds out what you've done with her Mercury, I don't think the back of the barn will still be standing! A friend gave me the same kit a few years back to do a Nascar version......I see that "patience " has it virtues..lol! Now I want to build one. Great job and for thinking "outside" the box. Love em when they stand n go!
  5. Just go ahead and send it to me......lol
  6. I see I'm not the only one who has been busy! Lol! I truly look forward to seeing what you will come up with next and You never disappoint. A Great looking Charger! Chuck
  7. What can I say?......I like Chargers and Chargin Charlie Glotzbach exemplifies the best of them. This 72 Charger replicates the 72 Daytona 500 ride where he placed 2nd two laps down to A.J. Foyt's Woods Bros. Mercury Cyclone. Some of Charlie's best career was with Cotton Owens, placing 2nd in the 69 Daytona previously. 4 wins, 50 top tens and 12 Poles out of 124 races to his credit while mainly driving Mopar. Buddy Arrington's #67 1974 Nascar Season ride when restrictor plates all but choke out the big Cubic Inch behemoths, Chaotic rule changes up to mid season and the country's gas tanks were still tender from rising gas prices of the 73 Oil embargo. After all said and done, Buddy placed 30th in the points. When time permits, Race track photos are coming.....
  8. Great looking build! Always thought Elliott and Marlin Intrepids were the best looking of the Dodge field. Looks a lot like my build...hmmm...let me check my shelf......
  9. Please contact/PM me at your convenience.....Chuck
  10. Do you have any Pengwenn Decals of Tom Pistone #59 ....Pistone64blu and Pistone64stripe?

  11. Take a corrugated cardboard (wavy reinforcement) box, cut the side off and soak it in water till you can peel each outer layer off exposing the wavy part. Set that off to the side to dry out, then cut 2 ribs into strips then paint. Several coats may be needed since the cardboard will soak up the paint. Use wooden dowels ( to simulate the post) nailed/glued to a wood strip ( for a base) and then hot glue the painted "guard rails" to the dowels. Then you have a guard rail section
  12. Posting this for a dear friend of mine for whom I've always admired his work. My only complaint (Envy) with him is that he builds them so darn fast I can't get the plastic wrapping off the box before he's on to the next one! A big Harry Gant fan from the old school of Nascar Winston Cup.
  13. Another "big" driver of the Nascar circuit. A fearless independent with no major sponsorship, Joe struggled at the the Grand National/Winston Cup level but was more competitive on the lower tiers of Racing. Ace Decals, Testor's Gloss Red and Dark Blue ....
  14. It does take a big man to wear pink, Panther Pink that is. When Chrysler wanted all their High Impact Colors to be represented, no one was a taker for Panther Pink. John said if they would give him the paint he would.....well it's easy to figure it out from here. Tom Mooty's Ol'Days decal are spot on and bring the paint to life. Tom is prompt with the order, correspondence was a ease and make a great product! The JRS kit is straight OOB and still is a fun kit to build. It makes a great addition to anyone's collection...
