    Thanks everyone, it was a fun build. It's hard to see but the doors have decals I made to replicate his father's old business card. He had a plumbing and heating business.

    Chevy Christmas Present
    I started this kit for my father to cheer him up last spring. He suffered a massive stroke and thought this would liven up his surroundings. After many hang ups, it's finally finished in time for Christmas.



    Thanks for looking

    Thanks guys. I like that slogan Don. I might have to make a bumper sticker for it with that

    Thanks Guy, and thanks for suggesting I resize them. On my phone, I couldn't even tell they were small lol

    Ok I just uploaded them right to the forum. Now they seem bigger. Sorry about that lol

    Thanks. I used photobucket so I'm not really sure how to resize then. Do you guys just upload right to the site?

    Well I built the Dodge Magnum SRT8 kit and it's mostly box stock. I built my own exhaust with resin mufflers and added some goodies to the interior to make it look realistic. Hope you guys like it.

    Thanks Slusher and I appreciate that Mopar. I think I can call this one finished. Let me know what you think.

    If you look closely, you can see the NY inspection and registration stickers I made




    In the back, you can see the tool kit and jumper cables


    Here's what the toolbox looks like all finished

    The paint laid quite well on the body


    And again, I want realism with this project so I added a few little extra goodies to the interior..

    I also made jumper cables and a tool set for the back hatch area since it opens on this kit

    Then I started assembling and detailing the chassis and engine bay..


    And finally, the exhaust mockup



    Hopefully I'll have finished pictures up soon. Thanks for looking

    I started the Dodge Magnum with the intent of a quick, fun model but then got more involved and got a little bored. Well now it's found its way back on the bench. Here's where we're at..

    I decided she needed a bigger exhaust so she could breathe


    Then I realized I needed exhaust clamps for realism

    Just your run of the mill 6.1 Hemi

    Thanks everyone. Dare1, they come in a package with a bunch or colors. I think they're used for sewing.

    A clean little 5 Window
    I started this kit around the first of the year but, due to illness, had to take a few months off from model building. Well I've finally finished her and I hope you guys enjoy. I've included a few WIP pictures too.




    The shifter was made with a needle from the local crafts store

    I actually made my own gauges and printed them out on photo paper.
