    Agreed. I wish we knew more, but even this picture gives some hope. I haven't built a model in 8 months but if Revell dropped a '70 I'd be on it in a heartbeat.

    If that picture is any indication of Revell preparing to convert the '69 to a '70, then that's great news!

    I have the bumper and rear piece from a eBay deal in my parts box, but it's nothing but cheap resin re-pops of Modelhaus parts. Both are full of pinholes. I thought about trying to cobble something together with the front clip of a Daytona and the rear half of a '68, but gave up on it. It would take more work than what it's worth. I have a lead on a Missing Link '70 for the Revell kit, and if all goes well I'll be building me a EB5 Blue car with matching interior and a 440. #FingersCrossed

    In my limited experience with Modelhaus, (I bought a correct interior and grille for a '70 Charger) I found that they are some of the best resin casters one can find. I will defiantly be placing an order for some small stuff and a full '70 Charger kit. I hate to do it, beings how they want to avoid a flood of orders, but I want the parts before you can't find them.

    If Round2 could do a 1970 Charger, and do it right, I'd buy it. I mean go back to the drawing board, and start from scratch. Create a brand-new chassis and drive-train (440 with Torqueflite would be nice), create a new body and associated parts, and create a new interior with separate door-panels, etc. If they could do this, and stay away from the far-gone MPC junk of a Charger, I would justify paying money for it.

    The more I look at this build, the more I want to build a Charger 500! Just beautiful!

    1970 Dodge Charger R/T?
    I was just wondering, has there been any recent news about anyone coming out with a 1970 Dodge Charger? I know there have been rumors for the longest time that Revell would eventually do one, but I was just curious about if this had any basis in fact, or if it was just a dream come true. Does anyone close to Revell have anything to share? Because, quite personally, I'd like to have one to build a good R/T in sub-lime green with black interior and black vinyl top, powered with a 440 Six Pack. But that's just me.

    Ohh..... McNally with a '68 Charger. Do I hear a Vanishing Point type story in the works?

    This should be good. I thought about building a Charger with a 383, but I have too many Chargers already!
  10. Mr. Moparman added a post in a topic 1970 Plymouth HEMI 'cuda - B5 Blue, Black Interior, 4-Speed   

    Guess who's back, back, back, back again... Let's just jump straight into the the pictures...

    The body had been further detailed. I went with BMF on this one, turns out it was a little bit of a challenge. The trim is not very defined on the body, so you have to go slow and use very little pressure on your knife. I glued the taillights and glass in, and we'll just leave the story on how the front windshield ended up in a white haze a mystery. I've applied to Revell for a new one though.







    I completed the interior and got it all put together. I have to give credit, I love how this interior builds up. Everything locks together, and I did not have to use one piece of tape to hold things up while the glue dried.







    I detailed up the Rallye rims in their appropriate shades of silvers and metalizers.



    And finally, I seated the HEMI in it's final home.




    Enjoy!

    Oh, I've never paid much attention. I just left the kit as is, it looked nice on my shelf, so I never corrected everything.

    Man, I've never seen anybody tear the Revell kit up so bad. I just have to ask, what exactly is wrong with it?

    It's a decal

    Hey guys! I'm back and I have updates!

    The body has had decals applied and two more coats of clear applied.






    The engine is done.




    I painted the chassis. I may add some brake lines and such, but I would like some input on how to go about that, as I've never done it before.




    And I painted the interior pieces. I also flocked the floor pan.










    Enjoy!

    That's just two coats of Testor's Wet Look Clear.
