    Very very nice !!! We can see you're "at home" with those car !!!! How did get the white stripes on the body ? Decals ? 
    I would like to build a replica of the Jay Leno's one which is really gorgeous, let's say it's on my list !!!

    Good to see my little Dodge bring back some good memories. You point a double mistake I've made Harry, when collecting pictures before doing the kit, I've seen some with this on rear window but that was the one with rear wiper option, which my kit didn't have, and if it was the case, it should be a little more on the left side

    Thanks for the nice comments, no the decals I put on the seats are from Scale Motorsport. The original interior provide in the kit is supposed to be the leather one

    84 Dodge Daytona TurboZ
    Hi guys,
    Back with a new built, something "different" for a change, a 84 Dodge Daytona. This kit is the one from MPC, built box stock. I only ad some decals form scale motorsport for the seats. Paint is from Tamiya ref TS92 on a silver paint. We have forget how good these MPC kits were, very good details and very nice overall line, I remember at the time I was more with the Monogram kits because they were easier to build but finally those MPC models are more detailed.
    Inspiration is from a TV show I was looking at when I was a kid : Rick Hunter. It was the car of the nice woman called Dee Dee Mc Call for the who remember. I've always liked these little Dodge, there were very potent car. I have a souvenir with one of these, it was around 86/87, I was in south Germany for working in a school learning job, and I was doing a lot of hitchhiking at the time, one of my favorite "occupation" was to look at some of the US soldier which were at the bases around, and try to catch one... And for once, a US soldier took me for a ride in a.... Dodge Daytona TurboZ, what a car, I was very impressed at the time by the power and how fast it was !!!! 
    Well here it is and I hope you'll like it

    1958 Plymouth Fury
    Hi guys,
    Back with.... an old built this time, this Fury was built maybe 15 years ago, my BMF job wasn't that good at the time. Anyway, I like it as I've done the job to have a "right" Fury model, and after cleaniong my display and my models, I decide it was time to  make good pics of it and present it here to you. Engine was modified with a 57 Chrysler 300 intake manifold and carbs, air cleaner were from an old Johan kit, Fury emblems are from MCG.
    Hope you'll like it
