  1. 1970 Rare Green Charger

    Just completed this FJ6 Charger a few weeks ago. I've been waiting on the white side stripes for a month to no avail ... So I decided to post it anyway ... I added a 440 instead of the kits Hemi engine and the rare M51 power sunroof.(Only a 112 were built with this option.) Door locks, radio antenna, and a window sticker were a few items that I added as well. I also added a close but not perfect M91 Luggage rack...another not to often seen option. It sports a V1W white vinyl roof which was supposed to bring out the side stripes ... :-) The deck lid was cut out and a few minor details were added... The front grill has the black surround added as well, by making a template then cutting it out of black electrical tape.
  2. The Charger Squad. The Hemi Orange 69 I built a few years ago, it fell off the shelf and still needs some parts put back on.
  3. 69 Charger

    Gonna start posting some of my pics that got lost. Here is a 1969 Charger that I did a few years ago. Guards Red and Black 1 (7) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (8) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (9) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (10) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (12) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  4. Revell 70 Charger in Go Mango

    Finished this one up yesterday! Not a bad kit at all and easy to convert to a street machine. Painted Testors' Go Mango with Tamiya TS-65 Pearl clear. Interior seats were taken from a Revell 68 Charger along with the exhaust pipes which were cut down to fit onto the kit supplied headers. I had an extra 68 so I used the tail light panel from it to make a hybrid 68/70 Charger. Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed.
  5. I got all the rear stripes put on the Chargers now. Check them out. 68 Flame Red 69 Sublime green 70 F&F Go Mango 70 Sun Yellow 70 Panther Pink Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  6. Update on 71 Chargers

    I got my Fireball Model works six pack intakes in the other day. Unfortunately they are just a little big to fit on the AMT & Revell 1/25 440 engines. That's okay though because I have a couple of Monogram 1/24 scale MOPARS that those intakes will fit. I went through some boxes and found some six pack intakes that would fit the engines though, so all is still good. Here is the one for the AMT 71 Charger, I forget where I got this intake from, but it is molded in yellow. The tires/wheels for this build I also picked up another 71 Charger, this one is the street machine version with the Hemi. Here is the set of tires/wheels I finally decided for this one. The wheels are some MPC units from something while the tires are those Goodyear Raised White Letter 15s.
  7. 1969 Dodge Charger / MPC

    Hi all, here's another model I recently completed. Started in 2014, I lost motivation due to the quality of the plastic. This General Lee MPC kit was really poorly molded, even with quite a bit of bodywork there's still alot of defects that show through. I eventually decided to just paint it as is and at least get it off of the desk, which is why some areas are not perfect. I de-chromed everything on the chrome tree, and redid those parts with Alclad. The wheels I sprayed a Zero Paints gold and left them in a matte finish. The body is painted Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic with Tamiya Clear, and the interior the same Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic over black, matte finish. I chose not to do the rear panel black for something different, the rest is all stock. The most fun for me was the photoshoot and trying out new lighting techniques, it's there where the car really shines. Cheers!
  8. Front and rear bumpers and bucket seat/console set from Harts resin, a set of AMT redline tires, and some rims from an AMT 69 GTX/Road Runner kit. Color will be Testors' Plum Crazy with a white interior. This one is also going to have a 440 six pack in it. Just how I would have loved to have bought one in 71 if I could have! I'm waiting on more plum crazy to shoot the body. Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  9. My latest addition to my Charger stable is this Fast & Furious version. I found a set of really wide treaded tires that would fit the kit wheels. I only had to use some #14 spacers from an MRC tire pack between the rear axle and brake plates to get them to fit without rubbing the springs. I'm actually going to have some fun with this one, as I have a 68 tail light panel and interior to put in it. So it will be a 68 Charger with a 70 nose. I will paint this one Go Mango with a black interior, like the 74 Road Runner I just rebuilt. It will have full exhaust so it will be a street car instead of a drag car. Below is just a mock up of how it's going to sit.
  10. I finally got a finish on this body that I can live with! Interior is almost done as well. This will have a 440 six pack with the carb setup from Fireball Model works. Thanks for looking! Comments welcomed.
  11. The maroon 68 has morphed into a flame red one! I had so much problems with the maroon that I chucked it into the pond and bought another kit. This is the paint job after a dip in the pond as well. The 68 turned out to be a problem child. I have some hood clearance problems with the air cleaner that I will fix. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  12. While looking for inspiration on the internet, I spied this 69 Hemi powered sublime green charger with rally wheels. So I just had to build it! I have some wide BF Goodrich Radial T/As and rally wheels coming from fireball model works for this. I just started on this one so no frame or running gear done yet. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  13. Hi folks, after completing the '69 Camaro I felt like doing something that should be quick, easy and fun. So I chose this snapkit and indeed it was the right choice. Despite the small number of parts, it builds up pretty nicely IMHO. I did only a few modifications such as: trimming the floor panel/ chassis massively (it's way too big to fit into the body, don't know why they did it like this), replacing the molded-on door handles with separate metal parts, making new exhausts from aluminum tube (bent to the right shape), adding fog light lenses from the parts box and adding PE side markers from CTM on the front and rear end. Painting has been done with ZP Hemi Orange Basecoat and ZP 2k clear. Here it comes, hope you like it:
  14. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    Revell 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, painted with Testors mystic green one coat lacquer and Testors wet look clear. White interior, basically box stock except for plug wires. Thanks for looking
  15. Revell 1970 Charger R/T

    I wanted to work on something bright, so I got out this 70 Charger for a quick build (I hope). Painted Odds & Ends sun yellow with wet look clear coat. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  16. Dodge Charger by MPC

    I have not done much over the xmas period, but I did start to fiddle with the MPC Dukes of Hazzard Charger.... I do not plan to build it in Dukes trim, it is a hash up of a few different models; Petty’s ‘73 Nascar charger, amongst others. There is no rear seat, no inner front wings (fenders) apparently the engine is not correct, tires way too fat etc etc so I ‘m going to build my own dream race-prepped street charger mash up. so far I have the 426 cu in hemi painted and built, and I am working on the body at the moment, adding front wheel arch tops as the kit comes with nascar style round-topped arches- I have replaced tbe missing plastic with the bonnet (hood) gap sprue so as to have exactly the same plastic as the front fenders for material integrity. Stock round-topped arch closest to camera, the repaired flat-top at rear: That piece of flat sprue was shaped and welded in place. It even has the correct curvature, so hopefully no stress or strain to crack in the future: Arch is shaped in situ, small gaps are filled with tamiya styrene cement: Righthand arch shaped and primed, lots of wet sanding to do still before the paint goes on, but a seamless repair: Nicely detailed hemi v8, but the manifold headers come with no exhaust pipes to empty into... go figure. I’ll have to make my own from scratch. Other little niggles appear whilst test fitting; such as the roll cage which is designed for the 73 Charger just does not work in this earlier 69 body- more chopping and bending to be done then... All in all not a bad model, but to build it box-stock would be somewhat disappointing for me. There is also a cubic tonne of flash on many parts, everything needs a good clean up, though the detail is more than acceptable. Even the engine block has molded in cylinders and pistons, the heads have the combustion chambers and valves, and even the camshaft and rocker assemblies are supplied. There is a clutch, also never to be seen once assembled.... Obviously some thought was put in to the simple enjoyment of the build, rather than the show of the final result!
  17. Built this a few years ago. I ended up displaying it in a mode l shop near where I live. Unfortunately the guy who owned the shop ended up closing, and stole 8 of my models including this one. Today all I have is pictures, but at least I hope its under somebody's glass somewhere.
  18. 70 Charger

    Re-painted the grill and did some touch ups. SAM_2543 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2544 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2545 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  19. 70` Dodge Charger "Green Beast"

    Hello, here is my current project.. Its 70`Charger from Revell Fast n`Furious kit.. Im not going to build Torettos car, since i wanted to do something else.. Paint is Tamiya Candy lime green.. Like you see, i opened headlights for grille.. Started engine wiring and plumbing.. Interior piece got some weathering.. Im doing this something like: it has fresh paint, fresh engine and chassis parts, but some pieces on body, i mean inner fenders on engine space, that interior panel where back seat should be, and chassis will be in "old" color of this car.. So its kind of middle of progress, but still in driveable condition.. I hope you got my point, my english is not well to explain it better..
  20. Checking out everything that's in the box with the new 70 Charger. Wonderful kit, crisp molds and sweet redline tires. Will make a great complement to their excellent 68 and 69 kits. Hemi is the only engine option on this one, but other mills ca be purchased all over the interwebs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TelIknzQz6A
  21. 70 Charger

    Couldn't wait for this kit to come out, and when it did I bought one immediately. Been waiting for some time to build it and since I just lost my job I have a lot of new found time on my hands for some builds.

  22. This is MPC's release of the 'Country' Charger in 1:25th scale. It's basically a direct re-pop of the long running General Lee kit, all the General Lee parts are included and you'll get an optional set of Torq-Thrust wheels and new flag decals with various names and numbers in the same font as the General Lee car. This is molded in all black. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVSucSDHmbA
  23. I am in need of parts to put a 1/18 die cast DOH '69 Charger back together. Someone robbed a bunch of pieces off of mine and it would be nice to make it complete again. It's just a shelf piece and will display OK once it is complete again. The body and paint are in excellent condition on the model - not sure why someone would have ripped a bunch pf parts off of it, but people do what they do. Mine is not to reason why, as they say.List of needed parts is as follows: 1) door mirror 2) pair of vent windows 3)windshield wipers 4) gas cap 5) steering wheel and column 6) complete exhaust system Or would be happy to obtain a damaged or worn Charger that I can use for the parts. Can purchase or trade. Thanks in advance.
  24. '68 Charger - Plum Crazy

    My '68 Charger that I just finished. Nice kit, although I had a heck of a time with the front bumper/valance fitting. Had to use super glue on the 3 pieces to get it to stay. Not perfect fit, but I moved on...LOL. I went with the Plymouth Plum Crazy paint and I really liked the way it came out. 3 light coats over the dark gray primer, then 3 light coats of Testor's One Coat clear. I went with the street version mostly, but stuffed the 426 Hemi in there and added some nice Mickey Thompson meats in the rear. Used the Mopar rims and some purple accents on the interior with Purple Embossing powder for the carpet. All in all, I think it came out pretty good. Hope you like it. Once again, much thanks to this board and it's members for the tips, tricks and projects posted. I read through this board a lot!
