  1. `68 Dodge Dart GSS

    Hello, here is my Dart from Mr. Norm`s kit.. Decals were poor condition, but i used that stripe and aircleaner decals from newer Hemi Dart kit.. Added plugwires and mudflaps and some custom "Mopar" license plates and some little decals too on windows.. I lowered front just a little bit, so stance looks much nicer now.. Paint is Tamiya TS-34 called Camel Yellow.. and for vinyl top, i just brush painted it with satin black.. Some red color also to give bit more attitude.. Commets are welcome..

  3. 69 Dart

    Not a bad kit, pleasure to build. Wish I'd have gone with black though. No engine picks, kit was missing some pieces for it.

  4. 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.

  5. Got one of these kits at Ollie's and wanted something that was pretty straight forward with no modifications. I had this orange paint sitting around and decided to use it. Once I got the white stripes on I looked at it and thought boy that looks like a Cleveland Browns truck. The only thing missing from the paint job is the real browns helmet has a thin brown strip on the outside of each of the white strip. I thought it still looked very Brownish and still put a custom plate on it. Did not notice how the hood was sitting till after I looked at the photo. I screwed the front decal up a bit.
  6. 340 Valve covers

    Hello all I am looking for a set of finned valve covers for a 340 mopar like these I have lots of parts to trade Thank you
  7. I found this website after Googling and stumbled upon Shelbytonas thread about the Daytona model he was working on. Unfortunately, his thread or project appears to be unfinished. I'm definitely going to use his photos as references though. I owned two of these cars in real life, both 1988's, both Shelby Z's, both white with maroon interior but one had a blue stripe. Anyways, here's the progress so far: The car: I'm choosing the striped one as my inspiration because I wanted to try painting stripes instead of using decals. This is also the first time I've used an airbrush, which I'm borrowing from my brother, and first time with acrylics. I think the bulk of the painting with airbrush is done, now onto the gluing and brushes.
  8. '68 Dodge Charger

    By far my best build & also my proudest build!! My '68 Dodge Charger with a 440 big block. It took me over a month to complete as I submerged myself into the detail of the car. This car truly helped me grow as a builder & I can't wait to see what comes next after this one!!
  9. '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!
  10. (Delete if not appropriate) Please no tirekickers. How many would be interested and for sure purchase a trans-kit of the 77 Monaco/Crestwood? It would come with body,rear bumper,tailights and tub/tub extension. Not sure yet if there should be trim for the wood,or leave that up to the builder. This would be mastered and produced by a professional who today produce very high quality aftermarket products,so it will not be anything as the resin blob offered on eBay. The price range my guess will be in the range $45-$60. You will have to supply donor-kit and extra glass. For now just checking interest. If the response is good i`ll get back with more details.

  11. '68 Dodge Charger

    This was the third kit I've worked on since I've gotten back into the hobby. I've been away from building for 15 years. This kit went together rather well. I cannot say there was much of a problem. The paint is Duplicolor MC201 Metalcast Anodized Blue with a Duplicolor Plymouth silver base. As I work more and more, looking back I should have rubbed out the orange peel. I'm learning... Thanks for looking
  12. 1968 Dodge Coronet 440 Build

    Hello, I am new to the forum! That being said, I thought I would share my recent car project. My stepdad owns a 1968 dodge coronet 440 with a 318 cubic inch engine. So I decided to make a scale model of it. I shaved the R/T badges from the 1968 R/T body I found online. Used painted masking tape for the black vinyl top. I also had to modify the engine mounts for the smaller engine to fit with the roadrunner frame. I have added a picture of the actual car for comparison. Parts Used: 1968 MPC Dodge Coronet R/T Body 1975 MPC Chrysler 318 c.i. Engine AMT Torque Thrust wheels w/ Firestone Tires 1/25 scale Edelbrock Valve Covers AMT 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner donor kit for chassis, frame, interior Bare Metal Foil Plastruct Scale Lettering Paints Used: Model Master Dark Bronze Metallic Lacquer Gravity Colors White Surface Primer Gravity Colors 3-part Clear Coat Gravity Colors Anthracite Black
  13. 1970 Dodge Challenger

    Hi all! It's been quite a while since I posted any progress on any of my models. I recently set up a new model desk and finally finished up my Dodge Challenger, so here are some studio pictures of the finished build. Enjoy!
  14. 1968 Revell Charger help

    Help! I'm trying to finish up Revell's '68 Dodge Charger R/T "special edition", but the front stance is too high. I'm about to pull it apart, but wondered if anyone else had this issue?

  18. WIP of my entry for this years Cannonball (Aussieball) cbp. Hopefully this is in the right category it's a car but it'll be getting mild 4X4 treatment, if it belongs in the Truck section by all means move it. Anyway like I said it'll be getting mild 4X4 treatment along the lines of the Off road Charger from Furious 7. So the front fenders will be cut and widened a little and the rear fenders will be wide bodied out a little too. Color hasn't been decided on yet, likely flat with some amount of weathering, not going to be show quality in the least. First time cutting fenders completely off, glad it ended well. And I though I had gotten a couple of pics of the work on the rear fenders but I guess not. Will have a few pics of it with primer up later today. Thanks for looking!
  19. Hello! This was my first kit that I completed. All comments and feedback appreciated.
  20. I started this car back in October 2012, and I'm getting back at it to try to finish it up. Here is where I stand right now: Engine Interior Undercarriage The body is at the "Paint Shop" right now (thank you Tom ), so hopefully I'll have more updates once the body is all painted.
  21. 1971 Dodge " Dirty Danny " Charger

    Pick this up the other day at my local Hobby Lobby with my weekly coupon. Growing up I had a 73 Charger and this is close . Not a big fan of the orange body color but hey......Decided to go outside of my comfort zone and try to scratch build a chassis to lower it, put wider tires inside and a cage in it. This is what I have so far. I had drawn it on graph paper earlier to see what size to make things. Already had to make it smaller width wise as I want the body to fit over it and not as tight as the floor pan that came with the kit. I am using the rear end out of another kit from a dragster so to fit the wheels inside the body. NOW if any one has ideas, tips, tricks or comments please help a brother out. I am hoping that once I get this one done I want to make some kind of a jig to speed up the process for my next build. All depends on how much trouble I have with the.

  22. Junkyard Charger

    Revell 1967 Dodge Charger, stripped and redone from a previous black Charger that I once posted a long while back. I used painter's tape for the vinyl roof, a power drill for the empty headlights and a Dremel tool to wear out the rust holes on the body. I used some spare wheels from my parts bin to take the place of the stock kit wheels, keeping only one of the stocks, but otherwise is box stock.
  23. 1969 Dodge Charger

    What's up guys and girls? I have another Charger for you! This is the yellow labeled pro modeler 1969 Dodge Charger. Did not do any body modifications other than cutting the motor mounts to make the massive Hemi sit right in the bay. The wheels may not be the right year for the car but it is what i had on hand and they where free! They came from the 1968 Charger kit. Details include wired spark plugs, battery, firewall, and brake booster. I added real rubber hoses for the heater and radiator. Interior came out to be my best yet! Made seat belts using craft ribbon and BMF. The floor board was flocked using nail flocking (really cheap on eBay, $10 for an assortment of 10 colors). Center console also has a little BMF added. The chassis is pretty simple, just some painted on details. First time trying the over spray look, probably went a little over board. Pint is all rustoleum rattle can with the vinyl top being one of their satin finishes. Can not remember the exact colors but can find out if needed. Don't be scared to point any flaws, only makes me better. Hope ya'll like it! Thanks!
  24. Owing to the fact that Round2 is on a good run with the MPC reissues , I wonder if the 1973-1974 Charger Rallye is slated for reissue ? Correct me if I'm wrong , but didn't it make its last appearance in c.1983 in street machine livery ? Its stock tyres and wheels were in absentia , but it was otherwise "stock" ( never kind that horrible "limo tint" phase that MPC went through in the early-mid 80's ! ) . Any Idea Whose Beautiful Work This One Is ?
  25. AMT 1/25 1971 Dodge Charger R/T

    Hi everybody! Just started some work on a 71 Charger. I managed to sand all the parts and put primer on all the body parts. I also painted the body, hood and chassis with Scalefinishes plum crazy purple. It was the first time I used Scalefinishes product and I'm very happy with it. There is some dust in the paint at the moment, but nothing that can't be sanded out. I'm going to wait a few days before I put some clear on it. I'm building this model for Moson model show in Hungary that will take place in the middle of april and I'm planning to build another kit The pictures are not the best, but you can see something Regards, Andraz
