Recommended Posts

Then it`s done after having my fair share of trouble and issues. Here is a little what is done.

Flintstone body. (Many hours of sanding to make it decent)

Lindberg chassis,interior and drivetrain,tires and hood scoop.

Polar Lights max wedge exhaust from the 65 Coronet.

Tamiya racing white exterior and Tamiya italian red with BMF ultra chrome and black chrome details interior.

Missing Link dog dish caps and Scenes Unlimited steelies.

Underhood decal from the Color Me Gone kit: Says Caution aluminium front end.

Mirror from my parts box.

Headlight lenses from ScaleProduction.de

Here are some pictures,the light was really strange tonight. Hope you like it,or not,feel free to comment anyway lol.

Nice job on that Polara Tommy, and I've seen the Color Me Gone car at the Chrysler Museum and that decal is on the outside of the car and not under the hood. I just love dem Mopars.

Yes,but this is just a street car,the decal was just to be a show off.

UGLY?? so ugly they were good looking. great build for what seems to be a not so good resin start. would love to have one on my shelf, but have not pulled the trigger on one yet.

if you think the 63's are ugly, you should see the 62's....

Very nice,,,,,, I sure have a soft spot for the 63 Dodges.

I assume the body is just a repop of the Johan annual kit ?

How is the engraving and detail on the body ?
