Furious Seven Off-Road Charger

Recommended Posts

Finally finished this off over the weekend. It started as a Revell '68 Charger body on an AMT NASCAR chassis, though there's not much left of either one...

Like most of my TV/movie models, I tried to build it as it was described more than as it actually was (e.g., the prop cars used Chevy motors, I went with an actual Hemi as suggested by the rear flanks). All comments/criticisms/questions welcome!

Awesome build! I want to know about your tire/wheel combo.

Nice build. That's the great thing about chargers they can stand up to abuse other cars just can't.

Thanks, guys! Just two more to go, and I'll finally be caught up on Vin Diesel's 2nd-gen Chargers...

I want to know about your tire/wheel combo.

I couldn't find what I wanted anywhere, so they're a combination of several sources. The tires are General Grabbers from B-N-L Resins (link) with custom lettering printed by Fireball Modelworks (white) and myself (red). The wheels are 3D printed items I drew in SketchUp and had printed at Shapeways using their ultra frosted detail (link)

Dude that is just too sweet! Awesome replica!!

I'm guessing here but will you be building a version of Dom's new ride... The 2000bhp Maximus Charger???

Cheers

Thanks, guys! Rod, I'm working on his black street Charger right now, but will be doing the Maximus once that's finished.
