    Besides the roof it looks great to me! Good job. Flip that roof to the down position and place it proudly in your display case.

    1970 Dodge Challenger
    This is the new issue Revell 70 Challenger. I custom mixed some cream and white lacquer and cleared it with Omni Urethane clear. The side stripe decals are from Fred Cady and the engine compartment decals are Last Detail ones. This is the first model that I have finished in a long time (I've started plenty). It was a fun "slump buster".

    Glad to see that the NNL got you inspired to do some building. Keep posting pictures as you go Charlie.

    I was wondering the same thing... I suppose they could be battery cables?

    Finished 1967 Impala
    My main focus for this build was to build a clean model with just a couple of aftermarket parts to spice it up a little. The body is painted with MCW Gold Metallic with a Urethane clear coat. The decals are from The Last Detail.

    Finished 1974 Charger
    With the Mopar Nationals coming up in a week, I figured I should finish up my 74 Charger project to take to the model contest. This is the MPC Super Charger kit that I kitbashed with a AMT 71 Charger for the engine and chassis.

    The body is painted with MCW Sky Blue (code B1) with a Urethane clear coat. The decals are from Keith Marks.

    The Last Detail Decals have a new owner. They are being distributed by an Australian company called "The Parts Box". They seem to ship for free on orders over $20.

    Their website is: http://www.thepartsbox.com/

    Thanks for the kind words all,

    67 AMT Chevy Impala
    This is my 67 Impala project that I have been working on. It is finished with MCW Gold metallic paint, Last Detail decals and a urethane clear coat. I painted the interior with Tamiya titanium gold metallic. Watch for this one on the contest tables later on this year.

    64 Plymouth Belvedere
    I finished this quickie build last week. It is the Lindberg 64 Plymouth Belvedere kit. I used plain ole' black lacquer on the body and finished it off with a urethane clear coat. The interior is Tamiya acrylic red with a little bit of black mixed in to darken it up a little bit.

    I would charge NO LESS than $100 for the body to be painted, decaled, cleared and polished.

    Just my .02.

    Yep, that was me. I bit off a little more than I could chew back then. I ended up breaking the body in half so I trashed it. When I get around to building a replica of my 1:1, I will open the doors and trunk on that one.

    Finished: 1974 Plymouth Roadrunner GTX
    I finally decided to live up to my name and post some pictures of a recently finished MOPAR model.

    This is a 1974 Roadrunner built from the reissued AMT 74 GTX kit. I used the chassis, running gear and inner fenderwells from an AMT 71 Charger kit. The body decals (red printed over silver) are from Keith Marks, the interior decals are from my parts box. I painted the body with regular old black lacquer paint and cleared it with Omni 2 part urethane clear.

    I've had this model partially completed for years and it has been on the primer table at NNL East at least twice. I'm glad to finally call it done.

    Enough blabbing, here are the pictures:

    Very Very Nicely done. I have been gathering the parts for years to build the same car. Mine will be black with a tan interior.
