      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

 Hello folks. I had recently posted this build on another forum, but shortly afterward it went down for repairs and has remained that way for a couple of weeks now. I started this as soon as the DOH Charger was re released. The only aftermarket stuff I used were the photoetch oil cooler grille, the resin wheels, the nuts and bolts used for the suspension and wheel studs/nuts and the white vinyl numbers and hood call outs which were done on a friend's vinyl cutter. My reference was countless pictures of Nichels cages and chassis as well as advice from people who worked on and/or own Chrysler stock cars of this vintage. The #5 has no significance other that nobody actually ran that # in 1969.  I see now that Scott and Futurattraction have come out with a handsome set of seatbelt hardware that would have saved me hours of work making my own. Anyhoo--here are a few outdoor shots of the finished product and the Photobucket link will take you to the in-progress shots of the build, which was my 1st large scale build ever. I'm not afraid of comments or tips. Thanks for looking.

Great job, funny, most people don't realize the Chargers were run in this configuration before the Flat nose 500 or the areo Daytona.;)

That is an amazing build! Can you tell me where you got your reference pics? I'm desperately looking for photos of the brake and fuel lines, and anything else  I can get ahold of. Thanks!

Just goes to show, there's a lot of modeling left in that ol Dukes kit.
