  1. There is a series about this on Netflix called 'Clark' it's where the term "Stockholm syndrome" came from. It mentions the car in one of the later episodes.
  2. Nice! My first car when I was 17, though mine was a four door with dog dish caps. still, just as much fun spinning those rear wheels!
  3. Thanks, Mark. Yeah, I was going to go with green and white if I remember, but then I seen a brochure painting in this scheme and loved it so went with it.
  4. Absolutely stunning. I've built one of these and it does indeed feel like a Revell. Spotless job, and that colour? love it!
  5. Outstanding build, very clean. That colour looks amazing!
  6. I like that! Lovely colour combo. I need to get another one of these, it's a great kit.
  7. aw, thanks for thinking about me guys🥰 haha. I'm still around, I've just been super busy getting my car sorted, and other stuff I've been putting off around the house for far too long. The '71 Charger is still in progress. I've done a bit more on it but not much. I'll post an update on it soon.
  8. Awesome detail going on there! Love the speaker grille and open ashtray😎
  9. Yea, the windshield was the issue. It's pretty thick where the locating pins are under the cowl, they don't really need to be there. Thanks for the heads up on the driveshaft👍
  10. I got started on this a few weeks ago but been spending most of my time fixing up my 1.1 car, not a Charger unfortunately. Progress will be a bit slower than usual because of that. I've got as far as paint, and a vinyl roof, you know how I love them! and I have the chassis/interior temporarily together to fix some fit issues around the windshield and dashboard. Also the hood needed to be shaved super thin over the firewall as it stuck up a little. Tons of flash on this kit but so far it's going well.
  11. Yea, it is a bit of a pain. The only areas you need to mess about with are the front cab hinges and the cab supports at the back. You can always raise the front bumper instead, to close up the gap there at the front.
  12. Great looking stance on that.
  13. Looks good. Much cleaner without those weird roof windows.

    57 Chevy

    Man, what a beauty! The stand is a lovely addition.
  15. Very nice start, love the colour. I need to pick another of these up, such a beautiful car.
  16. I can relate to Revell decals! Not that they're rubbish, they're just very fussy and don't like being moved a lot. Despite the issues you had you turned out cracking looking Chevy there. Love the colour and the clean engine detail, very nice.
  17. Your weathering is right on point there! Love it.
  18. Thanks, Tom. Thanks, Craig. Cheers Bill. Yes, I've a bit of an obsession going with them, haha. Thanks Chris. Cheers David. Thanks, Chaz. Thanks, James. Thanks Philippe. Cheers Mario. ..and a lot of styrene Lol
  19. Haha, I can believe that! Thanks man. Cheers, Joe. Thanks, Eric. Thanks, Sonny. Thanks man, I know you like watching these Chargers being built:) I have the '71 Charger coming up soon which is new to me, never built one before but looking forward to it. Cheers buddy. Yeah, I love red and white combos. The main reason I chose white really is because I had one more tail stripe left over from one of the three on the decal sheet in the '68 Revell Charger kit. Cheers, Nigel. Thanks, Jason. Thanks Dave. Yes, it has to be something you enjoy doing for sure. I have an old issue of the '64 Impala I want to "go to town on" so look out for that. No fit issues with that kit if I remember from last time I built one, so half the battle already won there👍 Thanks mate. Hopefully Round2 is watching and think "Hmm, maybe we could do something with this kit" We can only wish, hu? ..well, I do anyway, haha.
  20. Now those are nice! Flawless looking paintwork.
