      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    The Hemi Orange one will have the 440 kit engine but the Green one I got a resin air grabber hood and buckets resin parts from Harts Parts so Ibwill try and scavenge up some Hemi parts for it.

    Got the 2nd body ready for paint. Primed with Tamiya Gray Primer, then painted it Tamiya Silver Leaf for a blocker, taped up the body and painted the vinyl top with Testors 2 step vinyl top system.

    I was hoping to get the vinyl top a little darker than the main body, reason for black vinyl top base, when I sprayed the whole body with Scale Finishes Sherwood Green. This is what I got.

    Not really what I was looking for but not to bad I guess.

    Got it cleared and then taped up to spray vinyl top. Used Testors White 2 step vinyl top paints. Just untaped and have tape marks in the clear after allowing it to dry for a couple days. Hope it will polish out.

    I used the gray body for the Hemi Orange with White Vinyl Top and will use the Orange molded body for the Sherwood Green Charger. I have that one primed, painted silver for a blocker of the Orange plastic.

    Painting has been started. Started with the Hemi Orange first.

    1971 Dodge Charger X2
    Got a couple of 71 Chargers started. Need to get some good weather to do some priming.
    First one will be Triple Green with Sherwood Green paint , green vinyl top, green interior. Need to come up with some green for the vinyl top and interior yet. Got the Sherwwod Green from Scale Finishes. The second one I was planning on Hemi Orange with a White vinyl top and white interior but, am wondered with bleed through of the orange plastic. Worried about bleed through with the Orange plastic though. Why mold a model in Orange or Red?  Was surprised to the Orange plastic is actually a metallic (Dirty Donny kit). Used .040" half round plastic to replicate the vinyl top trim on both.

    This is what I was planning for the intake setup for the engine but, it didn't fit under the hood.

    So I found a chromed intake and air cleaner in the AMT 55 Bel Air so, I decided to use them instead.

    Here is the carpeting using Embossing Powder colored Sapphire from Michaels.

    Looking like a cool idea. Have a similar project going.

    Getting the engine together for this thanks to Replicas in miniature of md. Will post picture tomorrow when I get more completed. Redid the carpet using embossing powder instead of flocking, looks much better. Need to get this completed next.

    I just pulled my unbuilt Johan Sox 71 Cuda and it doesn't have the fender gills. So that would need to be added for a replica stock somehow. Then the billboards will become an issue as they are sized for the Revell 1/24 Cuda.
  12. jjsipes added a post in a topic 1971 Cuda Question   

    Thats what I was thinking as I want to build a stock 440 six pack car. I knew the Revell 71 was from the 80's or early 90's and was 1/24 scale but I just couldn't get over the differences in them. I have build a few Revell 71's but after building the new 70 the old 71 looks outta place.

    1971 Cuda Question
    Just out of curiosity, has anyone seen or have come out with a 71 conversation for the Revell 70 Cuda? I just bought another Revell 71 Cuda and was looking at the differences in scale and shape of the bodies and wow. I know the 71 Cuda is an older tooling.

    Getting closer to completing model. Has been a great kit. Only issues have been window fitting prior to paint, vent windows - not much glue surface, grille mounting points on core support needing trimmed so grille set back in body correctly.
