    I have come back to look at this build several times. Jason you did a wonderful job of building an A/FX car of the period,  this was the last hurrah for the traditional factory A/FX effort as the altered wheel base Mopars were getting all the attention in the press.  The attention to detail in your model is outstanding and is somewhat subtle but makes the model special. The teardrop hood is a personal touch and a lot of the cars of that era had one off pieces that weren't seen on other cars.  I enjoy seeing the S/S, A/FX, stock bodied cars replicated in model form and yours is one of the best examples.

    I like what you did with the car,  must be in early '64 as it isn't beat up too badly yet.

    A really nice build, paint, stance you have it all.

    You did a wonderful job, thanks for the work in progress photos. I'm not that familiar with the Dukes car and would have overlooked the subtle changes you did to the body & frame.  The casual observer would assume the kit came that way, your building skills make it seem like it came that way, nice build !

    A very nice build, the scratch built items worked out great. Not a successful car but Jim Hall was always trying  out new ideas, most of the time they worked.  Again good looking model !

    Mike, I used some Metalizer aluminum paint on the carbs, then did a wash of some flat black to bring up some of the great details on the Fireball carbs, and added a bit of Testors silver to add some contrast, also a bit of brass on some of the fittings. Thanks for the compliments on the build.

    Very nice build !  Definitely has the Gasser look of the '60's.

    63 Dodge
    This model started out as an original '63 Dodge Polara by Johan. I used the original body, glass , dash & bumpers. The chassis  , running gear, interior and engine was from the Lindberg '64 Dodge Color Me Gone Kit.  There are some subtle changes to the body in the rear to reflect a lower model of the Dodge line. I added a narrow post to the roof, probably not 100 % correct but I like the look of a post car. The door handles and carbs are from Fireball Modelworks, MCG emblems are on the trunk.  I wanted a bench seat in the front and made it from the rear seat in the '64 kit.  I mixed up some left over paint which turned out a bit more yellow than I envisioned. The decals are left over bits and pieces from various kits. Any comments are welcome.
