    Thomas, your welcome.
    That's what great about  these forums, a wealth of information and ideas to keep us building and in debt.

    Got two coats of Mythical Maroon Lacquer on. It's darker than the pic shows.

    Check out the website for Legacy conversions. They do a 1945-68 Dodge Powerwagon too.

    Okay guys, I couldn't stand not trying. I went to the spare parts box and kit bashing to see if I could get the Revell F & F '70 Charger close to stock. Some parts from a Revell Charger Daytona kit in my stash, and CapSat 6 is right, a little bending and sanding and the Daytona hood fits real nice. See pic.

    Legacy '55 Chevy 3100 NAPCO conversion
    Saw the article on the internet about the Legacy conversion of a '55 Chevy 3100 to a NAPCO 4x4. Decide to try and replicate. Using an AMT '55 Stepside and the suspension (plus wheels and tires) from the new release of the MPC Deserter 4x4. Here's a mockup of pre assembly. I like the stance so far.

    Hey, how about the Rupp Super Sno-sport? I know it is 1/20th scale but it has all the right parts. There are a bunch on Ebay.

    Sorry to be so late to your tread Mark, but your doing great work. Here's a pic of (the restored) Dale Earnhardt's 1977 Olds engine bay as he ran in Talladega in 1980. It should be close to how the Monte Carlo was setup then. Hope this helps.
    It is from the book :  Vintage & Historic Stock Cars by Dr. John Craft. It is a great reference for Stock Cars run from 1950 thru 1994, it's loaded with many color pics.

    I just found that the original release of the Landy '68 Charger came out in 1999. The release of the 2 n 1 '68 Charger came out in 2008. I hope Revell doesn't wait that long this time to release a stock '70 Charger.

    Good 3/4s pic of a 1970 Charger R/T for comparison.

    Have Ecto-1 roof rack parts
    Received two sets of Polar Lights Ecto-1 roof pack parts from a kind member on this forum. If anyone is looking for some parts to convert an AMT Ecto-1A to a  Ecto-1 (roof rack) PM me and I'll send you what I have.

    Chuck, I never noticed before (because I still haven't built it) but I looked at my '68 2 n 1 Charger body and there is a 1mm section of vinyl at the base of the drip molding. And there are no side signal lights molded on the body, just decals.
  13. magicmustang added a post in a topic A reasonably SERIOUS new-tool '70 Charger Revell is hiding in plain sight...   

    This release reminds me of the Revell Dick Landy '68 Charger that came out before the release of the '68 Charger 2 in 1. The Landy could be built only one way and the later 2 in 1 had parts for both stock and race versions with different decals.
    Found my Revell 2 in 1 '68 Charger (2008 release date) in my stash. Still had a Hobby Lobby price sticker for $17.99. The new Revell kits are now $29.99 but there is "no inflation" in America, really!

    My local Hobby Lobby has a slot marked for the "Revell F & F '70 Charger" in the model section. So they should have them in stock soon. 
    Sad about the molded hole in the hood, now I'll just wait for the stock release.
