69 Coronet R/T
Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsNot a stock color, but the yellow paint didn't want to stick to the hood. Had trouble finding a stripe for the rear as well. Wanted a black stripe, but had to settle for the white. Went with the day two look. Hood. scoops, and tail lights are from Hart's Parts. The pics came out alright, but it's been storming here lately, so there wasn't much sun.
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE (Special Edition)
Bills72sj posted a topic in Model CarsThis is a recreation of my old friend Jeff's 70 R/T SE 383 Magnum. I built it as near as possible to his 1:1. Items of note: Small SE (only) rear window, Blacked out grille and tail panel, R/T hood with black treatment and open scoops, Side (and rear) stripe delete, BFGs on American Racing wheels (Outlaw I in rear and Outlaw II in front), Pistol grip shifter on 4-speed. I started with a resin SE body from ebay but it was not that great of a casting detailwise so I only used the roof. My donor kit was an AMT 'Yankee Challenge' with a blower hole in the hood. I had to fill it in and do it smooth enough to paint it gloss black. It actually turned out quite well. The shifter was sourced from a Dodge Super Bee kit I think. The Dodge lettering on the front are individual decals. (what a PITA). The 383 Magnum decals are from an aftermarket sheet. I am VERY pleased with how it turned out.
1971 Hemi Challenger R/T
Bills72sj posted a topic in Model CarsThis model was a difficult endeavor. The body was a resin copy that had a few of resin's typical issues, namely warping and thickness variances. It also was cast without an engine compartment or cowl. I used an AMT Yankee Challenge kit as a donor. With a lot of trimming, most all of the parts fit together. One of the challenges was having no grille or headlight frames. The 1970 parts are way too different to use so, I made them from scratch. The "floating" grille sections turned out so-so, but they do make it look like a 71 at least. The tail lights were drop in with minor trimming. (I think) the fake side scoops were sourced from Drag City Casting. The rear "Go Wing" came from an AMT 71 Duster Kit. The Hemi came from one of my Challenger kits or parts box (it has been a long time). The R/T stripes came from an ebay vendor. Too bad the artwork for the letters was slanted WRONG on the drivers side. (no way to fix it either). I would normally detail paint the rally wheels but after all the other battles, I just wasn't up to it. The first shaker hood I painted and decaled was warped so I tried to fix it with heat. BAD move. I turned it into a potato chip. Fortunately Will, from DPMCC, came to my rescue and sent me a replacement. THANKS WILL!
The very last car -- at least as far as the Dodge name is concerned -- built in the Hamtramck Facility ! http://www.hotrod.com/articles/last-dodge-made-hamtramck-gets-new-home/
1968 Dodge Coronet donor.
om617 posted a topic in Model Building Questions and AnswersHello. Anyone know what would be a good donor for a 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T? Mostly for chassis,interior and glass. How would the 68 AMT Road Runner be? Thanks Tommy
1969 Dodge Charger
om617 posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsGot this one painted as the sun is out and there is some warm weather. Done the foil,put on decal and the some coat of clear. Maby not the most exciting color,it`s tamiya champagne. Since the pro street style is a bit crazy,i thought tone it down with the color,so white top,decal and interior. Here are some pics. The chassis is half AMT and half Revell. Not done painting. Interior. Some flocking and bmf added. No cage and i still wanted back seat. Tires and wheels. The wheels are machined aluminium from "customs by terry" on Ebay. The body so far. Needs some side marker painted,door handles,wipers,bumpers and other small things. Not made an decission on engine but the 426 with supercharger is one option. Another is the Gibson engines,but they cost a lot so not sure. Some pro mod converted to street gas would be cool,got to think about it a little more. I guess it`s not everyone cup of tea but comments are welcome by anyone. Thanks for looking.
