    Lee, your engine is looking great. You have to fix the air cleaner tough. That air intake hole on it faces the inner fender, and not the hood. The way it is you may have clearence problems under the hood. Easy fix tough. 
    Another detail, that you didn't show yet, but it's wrong even on the box art model. The gravel shield or splash pan behind the front bumper is not body color, it's argent (flat aluminum).
    The engine on my supercharged Custom Tudor is not as detailed as yours, but the air cleaner is on the position it is on 1:1 cars.

    Already started on a '53 Ford truck!!! The rusty taste of Mopar is hard to get rid off

    Guys, thanks again, love your feedback!!!
    You are right Harry, that seams do look toy-ish. I thank you for not noticing the car has no mirrors.
    Seriously, I never thought much of those seams, always accepted them as "characteristics" of the old AMT chrome parts, but will try to get rid of them and see how it goes.
    Stay tuned on this same Bat-Thread on this same Bat-Forum for the conclusion!!!

    No problem, I just thought the tires had a "lindberg-ish" look to them. Still love what you did, it's a real nice job!!!

    Thanks guys!!
    Love the AMT kit. It builds so well. 
    The only bad part is like Lee said, the supercharger is an aftermarket kit, and not the factory setup. This kit pressurizes the entire carburetor, inside a pressure box. The factory system would use a cast cover to pressurize trough the Holley teapot carb. 
    I built a Custom Tudor with the factory setup. Revell only missed the dual belt drive most cars had.

    AMT 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria. Fully stock (well almost) with just a little treat under the hood. A blown 312.
    Paint is Tamiya TS-15 blue. Foil is home made, no BMF. Also has gold candy wrap on the side spears. 
    The kit used was one of those old ones molded in blue. have to get another one of those...
    Fast build, only took me five days. The only extra detail is a wired distributor, and plug wires that go above the valve covers due to the headers installed. Not much detail, only a nice shelf model to go back to FoMoCo after building a Dodge EEEEEWWW!!!

    Very nice looking Custom. Very tasty with a mean and simple look. 
    By the way, are the tires from the Lindberg '53 Ford? Still have to build one of that.

    The car is not my cup of tea, but WOW, what a job well done!!

    Thanks gents!!!
    I just had to change the grille. I was afraid of having to pay years of therapy so the car would actually "discover" what he is, 
    Now he can say: "I'm a Charger 500"... "500!!, like a Galaxie..."

    Oh boy, another kid that won't have a girlfriend, and will spend countless hours of precious summer sun inside building models... Wait, just wait. What's bad about it? Nothing!!! He can even find a girlfriend that also builds models!!
    Well done, keep up my young fellow, because if you don't, we that like to build those things will soon be extinct. The video games and modern gadgets  would have won.

    That grille would had saved me a LOT of trouble. 
    Mine I did using a piece of a photoetch grille, that I cut to fit the Charger grille. Used some tape on the back before painting it black, so the Charger R/T grille wouldn't be visible, and the headlights came from an old AMT 1964 Impala grille. Not as neat as a real kit's part, but kind of gives the idea of what the car is.

    That is one handsome Galaxie Starliner!!!! 
    Loved the color choice

    Charger now with the 500 grille. Or kind of.
    I couldn't sleep, I kept picturing the poor little Dodge Charger with that R/T grille, and had to help him. 
    Tried my best at scratchbuilding a more stock looking Charger 500 grille.

    Almost as cool as a '66 Galaxie 500 Four door sedan with a optional R code 427. No not really, not even close. Not my cup of tea. but I will love to see you build it.
