  1. Brett Bodine's Thunderbid the way it was running, I believe, the 1992 season. I had to take the earlier Buick decals and mix them with the Quaker State decals from a later Thunderbird. Actually that car was the first car model I built, which was more than 25 years ago. I found that Irvine Thunderbird in a box and decided to re-do it properly. Result is far from perfect, the green color I guess not exactly the right one. Anyway... 🙂

  3. Here the Chargers which I built so far. Surely more to come...
  4. It was just standard orange, non-metallic. Maybe the imperfect paint job looks a little metallic.
  5. They are scratch built. Just used small metal tubes, inserted cable insulations and painted them silver.
  6. As already said, great job. I also have the two door version waiting. ...just curious: how you applied the photo-etched lettering so perfectly?
  7. Hi everyone. Thanks a lot for your compliments. As already mentioned that kit is a bit strange one and even more funny it was when they used the same for the Dukes of Hazard. But the race version parts including some engine upgrades and a cool tire/wheel combo is a nice extra which I partly already used for the Superbee I just finished. Anyhow, I also like how it turned out and it makes a good part of the collection. Cheers....
  8. It was the AMT kit. I little strange kit as the box is showing wheels and air cleaner which were not part of the kit. With taking below photo I also just recognized that the number plate of the car is stating "69 GTX".
  9. Hi Thomas. Thanks a lot. The color is just the standard Revell orange. I still had one of those small air brush colors in the glass. It may appear a bit more like the Go Mango maybe. The original Hemi orange would have been nice, too, for sure.
  10. As I had the camera still ready I just took another Mopar out of the shelve, cleaned it from the dust and made some pictures. As far as I remember it was out of the box except the hood and the wheels. Well, I guess the kit is known to be not one of the best. Anyway, to complete the b-body collection it turns out quite OK. Color is model master dark bronze out of the spray can. Very nice color which gives nice impressions under different lights (can see at the last two pictures).
  11. Hi Lee. Thanks for the advise. Will surely try it with my next build.
  12. Alexandr. Molodec... When I was young I always liked to go with those taxis. Great comfortable cars.
  13. Very cool bee. Great engine details.
  14. ...just some more pics of the engine and from the workbench (= living room table).
  15. Thanks. The engine is mostly the AMT Roadrunner Hemi, air cleaners, too. The cross ram intake is from Missing Link, carburators and ignition distributor are from the Revell Charger, rest is scratch. The hood is taken from the Revell Landy Charger kit.
