    Thanks for the info and pics! I actually ordered both types from comp resins so I can decide when I mount them. This is going to be a quick one, as it’s a one piece body, but I needed to do a quick project, just to see something finished. I seem to do the body, set it aside then leave it until I’m in the mood. But, the painted bodies I never get tired of looking at!
    I will just add interior detail to it. I have to remember to make an automatic shifter.!

    Red Alert
    hey Guys, just wanted to post a pic of my Red Alert, just out of the spray booth! I used the newly released Slixx decals and used the 70 SS 454 snap tite kit, as I’m just doing a curbside. I just wanted it in 1/25scale to go with my 1/18 version. I couldn’t find the full 1/25 kit anywhere and didn’t want to buy it off eBay. ( sick of it ) the hood decals were a little tricky around the cowl induction area and I had to cut them to get them to lay right, then touch it up a little.
    does anyone know what the actual car ran for wheels? 5 hole slotted?

    Hey Guys, just wanted to post a few pics from my Mopar Missile Duster. Definitely slow progress and kit bashing all these parts, nothing wants to fit. Finally got most of the interior fit, with a partial roll cage. I used the kit glass from the 71 Duster, but it's so thick. I trimmed it down a little. It's looking ok, But at least I got some progress done.

    Hi Tim, I sprayed them with tamayi TS-14 black from the can, scuffed the body then decaled it,then air brushed 2 part urethane clear and that how they came out, no polishing. Thanks for the compliment.

    Mopar Missile Duster
    hey guys, just wanted to share pics of a new project. After doing the body of the Motown Missile Cuda, I wanted the Duster to go along with it. Starting with a comp resins 73 Duster and parts from the 71 Duster, I've been trying to follow a scale auto article to do the rubbed chassis. I pieced the chassis together using the front half of the Duster chassis and the rubbed half from the AMT Pro street Nova. It's coming along but still needs a lot of work. I got it together enough so I could paint the body. Here's some pics of the pieces and the two bodies together. I've had no luck finding a Ross Gibson Pro Stock Hemi, still looking...

  11. dragmodels44 added a post in a topic Aloha Bobby and Rose 68 Camaro   

    Hey Guys, wanted to help with a few questions, the original wheels I used were ARII wheels. They came in a set for fronts and rears plus tires. They could be readily found in hobby shops, but no more. I see them on eBay for about 50-60 bucks. They used to cost 25 in the store. Still pricey but now they're ridiculous.  The next best choice I found are the monogram slotted mags like in the Tom Daniel Vette, and some of his other kits. Good luck!

    Thank you. I used tamayi paints and used automotive clear, hardener and reducer sprayed out of my badger air brush

    Here's an update, finally got the colors done, not without problems though! I was removing the tape after the blue, and dropped it on the roof, nicking it !!!!!! So... back to the paint booth, but I got it done.
