  1. 69 Daytona Hemi

    Gorgeous work!!!! And, I guess we think alike... I haven’t posted mine under glass yet because I dropped the hood and broke it in half. Getting it repainted now. Other than the tail stripe/interior, we had the same concept. Your build is beautiful, and that is some impressive work on the headlights!!!!

    AMAZING work!!!! I absolutely love everything about it and you did a phenomenal job!!!
  3. 1969 Camaro

    That looks fantastic!!! I love the steelies... she looks mean. How did you apply the craft paint?? Did you mix it into your airbrush? And what clear did you use that was safe for the acrylic base? Great work!

    I LOVE this kit... I’ve got to find one. My car from my senior year of high school through college was a 73 Road Runner. Your redo looks great so far! Looking forward to seeing more.

    Oh yeah...... this is looking fantastic so far!
  6. Might be impossible, but if anyone can help....

    I’ll try... THANKS!
  7. Might be impossible, but if anyone can help....

    That’s my next option.... strip the paint, glue, putty and do my best. But I’m not good with putty... it seems to go from too mushy to sand to so hardened that sanding does nothing in 2 seconds when I try to work with it, so I end up with a lumpy, malformed surface. That’s probably what I’ll have to do, but as good as this has come out and it being an all-time favorite kit, it was worth seeing if anyone miraculously had one laying around.
  8. I just suffered a small disaster on a holy grail kit. I’ve waited years for Revell to re-release the 69 Dodge Charger Daytona, and grabbed one in early January. Took my time, did it right, and it came out beautifully. This was definitely getting a place of honor in my collection. I didn’t have the front spoiler on or the dodge decals on the hubcaps, but snapped a pic the other day. Twenty minutes later, I picked it up and the hood slipped off and dropped. I tried to catch it with my knees by slamming them together so it didn’t drop all the way to the floor and possibly get scratched. I was a little slow, so instead of getting caught on my knees, it went between my feet just as my boots crashed together, and the impact broke the hood in two pieces. if possible, I don’t want to buy a whole new kit for the hood... besides, then I’d have another whole car that I can’t build because it doesn’t have a hood. I had a 68 Charger hood, but it’s a tad too small. Is there any chance someone out there happens to have an extra Revell Daytona hood? With Revell not offering replacement parts currently, i don’t have a source to get another hood. Thanks!

    I got them off of eBay for $7.99. The seller is Forward Resin. Link is below https://www.ebay.com/itm/Resin-1-25-15-Bare-Chevy-Rally-Wheels-/323627522953

    A new entry.... not Under Glass yet....
  11. The 1968 Chevelle SS396- Grotto Blue

    Thank you! I looked at research pics and thought the positive cable was on the fender side, but will go back and check again. If I have them reversed, I’ll paint them. Either way, thanks for following along and the comments. I’ve been blown away by some of your work, (65 Shelby jumps to mind immediately) so I can’t wait to see what you do with this kit!

    Oops... good catch. I will repaint them for sure!
  13. I had to get this kit shortly after it came out, and couldn’t wait to get started on it. It’s a great kit... well designed and fits together perfectly. I have two niggling complaints: it could use some more detail pieces, especially in the engine compartment, and I don’t like the wheels and tires. The tires dictate it, because they are the same too skinny/too small tires Revell has been putting in their muscle car kits for years, just with a printed redline. Revell made new tires that were a much better size for the 70 Cuda kit, and they’re in the 70 Charger and the 80s Cutlass kits among others, but they used the old ones. The rally wheels in this kit are the ones from the 69 Nova, which I’m not a fan of. Too shallow, small and while the slots are open, they’re poorly shaped as they’re rectangular. The rally wheels from the 69 Camaro kits are far better and would fit those newer Revell tires, IMO. In the end, I did my own thing. The paint is a Duplicolor Chevy Light Blue, which is a pretty good match for Grotto Blue in 68. The interior got embossing powder for carpet and lots of detail work. Other details I added include: - Spark plug wires - Vacuum hoses - Bypass hose at the front of the block to the water pump - Battery Cables - Ran a hose from the washer tank to the wiper motor - Heater hoses - Tires are AMT Goodyear Polyglas, Fs in front and Ls in back, and the wheels were an EBay purchase In final assembly, I found and used other wheel backs, as the kit ones are so small my tires kept either falling off or falling over the wheel back. But other than engine details and tires/wheels, this is OOB. I decided against the SS stripes, as they tend to make the headlights look droopy in many cases. Maybe I’ll change my mind and throw them on at some point, but I’m happy with how it turned out and looking forward to seeing more builds of this. Thank you Revell for putting this out, and I hope to see a 69 soon! Thanks for looking... in to the pics. Interior Engine Done... mix of indoor and outdoor shots

    That’s SWEET!!! I haven’t posted mine Under Glass yet... hoping the rain will let up and I can get a few outdoor pictures before I post, but I just finished my 68 this morning in Grotto Blue. I’ll get a full post on it up in the next day or so. Yours looks great! I saw one pic of a Rally Green one that I liked, too, but it was too close to the color for my Charger Daytona, so it ended up blue.
