  1. I wouldn't worry about the decals too much. There are just soooo many ways to decorate this monster right! Here's mine with some of "Donny's" skulls added for effect...

    Lincoln LIMO

    I keep expecting to see a swimming pool in the trunk. Nice job!
  3. Chesterfield County, VA Sheriff's Office and Fire Marshall...
  4. Pick up this kit... It has a close approximation of the engine you need, and builds up nicely like this...
  5. Two of my recent longroofs... Alternomad... Cadillac Hearse
  6. Part 2... Another fun build, but those stripes can be a royal pain.
  7. Another easy build, this one I used ModelMaster Italian Red after spraying it with primer. This red is much better than the original mold.
  8. I also added more detail to the interior... Not a bad build, just wish the stickers were better.
  9. I added BMF to the body lines and hood area, then painted silver trim around the taillights.
  10. This is the Polar Lights build. The glue on the back of the racing stripes and "53" were bad, resulting in stickers that would not stay on. Good thing I scanned them in before using them, as I can now print them on decal paper! Pictures without the stickers...
  11. Pro Tip: If you buy both the 68 and 69 kits, you can swap the bodies in order to get a vinyl roof 68 or a hardtop 69. The only thing that would need to be altered are the front side turn signals, otherwise they are the same.
  12. Let's see: Jo-han Heavenly Hearse - $65 Jo-han Cadillac Ambulance - $60 Fujimi Toyota Supra "Hi-Mechanism" kit - $75 Mad Max Interceptor - $50 So somewhere around $50 ~ $75
  13. Testors One-coats look great on these musclecars, and yours did great! One small thing, you might want to catch the bottom end of those "Superbee" decals before they curl out. Something like Micro-Set should tame them. Otherwise, awesome Mopar!
  14. Looks really nice! As a minor suggestion, get some thin sheet styrene, cut out some small rectangular pieces out of it, then glue them to the inside of your hardtop and paint them black. It will keep the top from bouncing around and allow it to sit better to the cab. Like this... And my tailgate has the same gap as well. Must be the nature of the kit. Great work!!!
