"The Stig Collection" -1970 Plymouth Duster 340 Wedge

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!, this is an exact replica of my REAL Duster just after I finished doing the bodywork on it. Its very special to me because it was my birth year, AND the first model year of it. Since there wasn't an actual 1970 kit, I had to SB a few changes.....the front grille, taillights, and dash, are some of the things. Its totally detailed, and ALL the wiring is laying exactly as it was. The taillights are too reflective for back then, but I will have that corrected when I build it after it came out of the paint shop.

Hey, Chris!, I couldn't have the stock wing on it whilst I was doing the bodywork, but now I think it looks better without it!!

Very cool that you can make a model of your actual car.  The cars I buy never seem to make it to kit form.

Presently, we own a 17 Malibu and an 09 Impala.  Without getting into a lengthy list, the two cars we owned prior were a 94 Cutlass Ciera and a 99 Lumina.  Not exactly the kinds of cars the model kit builders flock to.
