      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

    Watch the windshield area, the dash an glass will also give you an issue there too as the glass will seat where the dash seats at too. The term two things can't seat in the same place. I built quite afew 1969 Chargers models in my life LOL. I love these cars. To get the interior to fit, you might want to also maybe install the glass an test fit the windshield with the dash placement to get the interior to fit right an set right. The floor board on these models are to thick on the bottom of the two squares. Plus another area is the firewall sides under the front fender areas to. Try saving a few hairs off of them to as I always have to myself on my projects.

    Keep up the great work on the project here.

  4. M0par Jim added a post in a topic GMC/Chev van kits. I have questions...   

    The A-Team Van does not have the wheel flares molded in, they are to be glued on when building the van. As for the grill in the kit.. I believe there was two grills in the kit. There is a hobby shop out in town ran by my cousin that has a very big parts only bins of all kind of parts and what not. He probably has the part/s your looking for, not sure if he be willing to look though or help out if asked. I know he surf this forum time to time.

    I loved following him on his projects and as he posted updates. I didn't really know him that well but knew him by his builds on here. When I saw that avatar of his in this thread it shocked me. Prayers goes out to his family and friends.

    Hi you all, I did manage to get a little done, I don't have very much progress right done on it. Wish had more done on though to be honest but family comes first though.
    I started on one frame rail, got up to the bend tack up an that's that about for right now.   
     
    Christian, your also correct too, Dodges did in fact have unibodys.. no agruements there on that. If your reffering to the c-channel stuff I will be boxing it in.. it won't remain c-channel. I loose to own a real General Lee for a while but no more. But I do love Dodge Chargers (th old ones) just the same though.

    The drawing and layouts. this is about 8 pages into one page when done just about. My disabled son can't believe the scale of this project and can't wait to see it start to unfold and come to life.







    I will also be building the rims and tires for the project as well.

    Comments towards the project is welcome.

    Thanks Harry, I'll need some luck on this one, the fun part is all the stuff on it will be scratch built! LOL.  Believe me I been drawing, measuring, correcting drawing lines. going off my own judgement, eyeballing things. I haven't even started on the chassis yet. Got some of the stuff for it though.

    For the body, I'm trying to decide if I should go with all metal or go the wire and frame and fiberglass route for the body. The chassis I'm using C channel steel and boxing the one side in and adding a lip over hang for the rail lips like all real muscle cars has. For the floor boards I'm thinking of alum stamping for a more better straigh for bolting things down to but the though of or maybe fiberglass route but I thought that would make things more weaker. I am planning of using Metal, copper, brass, alum, tin, plastic for on the project.

    1/8 1969 Dodge Charger
    Okay, I have projects going on, I like having afew going on to keep me motivated. But since I am doing a 1/16 Charger currently. I decided it was time for me to do something I always wanted to do..

    That is build a bigger scale one, I put alot of thought into it and for the scale size as well. I decided it was time to take that idea of building a bigger scale off the back burner and decided to build it. But first I have taken afew weeks to draw a blue print to use to build it. It measures well over 18inches long. I love the 2nd Gen Chargers, so that tells ya how much I want to build this project just for the heck of it.

    For me, I'm still working at staching out the parts on paper to make them out of metal and brass an solder.

    This project is planed so far to have open doors, trunk lid, head light doors, hood, working chassis suspension.. some of the good stuff. I'm not sure yet on color yet

    Any suggestions on the project is always welcome. I will post afew photos here and there on the project.
