'68 Dodge Charger

Recommended Posts

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...

Awesome job... Can't tell you ever took a break. Is this the Revell?

Thanks guys for the positive comments.

Robert, you are right, I should be putting some wear on those tires. From now on.

Nice Charger. In all honesty, factory paint isn't glass smooth anyway, just a nice gloss is sufficient. My only beef with your build is engine color. High performance Mopar V-8's are hemi orange, run of the mills are turquoise.

That started with the 1969 model year.  For 1968 only the Hemi was orange; the wedge engines were still turquoise.
