    Mikemopar70,
    This is the kit i was referring to. If anybody wanted to build a LX hatchback this would be the kit to use and graft the LX notchback bumpers onto this one.

    From what i seen with this kit pretty good accurate kit. Even though the body has a slight problem but thats ok still buildable. I like to wonder if you can use the Revell 93 Mustang Cobra body for those who wanna build a LX hatchback. I sure would love to get a couple of these kits.

    2013 Dodge Challenger R/T
    Heres another car that im replicating for a friend this time its his current ride. I'd used a Revell 2009 Challenger kit. Since the 1:1 car has a 6 speed the kits automatic transmission had to go i found one that was close from a AMT 92 Dodge Viper in order for that to work i carefully separated the crossmember and moved it back. Theres a few more things that needs to be corrected to make it accurate for a 2013 model.

    1972 Dodge Challenger
    A good friend of mines wanted me to replicate his first car that he bought back in May of 1972. It was just a basic Dodge Challenger that was Bright Red with white interior & a white vinyl top and had a 318 under the hood. One day he gave me a box of his old models to restore and unknownly this old MPC 72 Challenger was in that box. The frame im using is from a AMT 70 Challenger R/T, engine is from a AMT 71 Duster i'd modified the optional six-pack intake to resemble the 2 barrel intake that the 1:1 car had.
