The Charger Squad - Post Pics of your Chargers

Recommended Posts

I've only completed one Charger so far.

This '68 is the first part of a themed set of three kits I'm working on. 

Had a major issue when completing this. Something dripped onto the passenger door, and that required a repaint, which didn't match perfectly, but kind of fits the theme.

:)

The recent revell kit with a set of aoshima wheels and clearly scale pro charged 528 hemi, slammed as far as it would go. I used the hood with the cut out for panels under the stock hood, then had to cut a hole to get the engine to fit but i kinda like having it barely peeking through. Paint is duplicolour blue pearl over white primer, and some gold detail on the grille and wheels

I've got a number of kits of Chargers, but this is the only one I've built in all these years. Hard to believe this model's nearly 20 years old now! :blink:

Many beautiful Chargers here people! Chargers rule, plain and simple. They are the epitome of 60’s coolness. No other car from that era, or just about any other era for that matter, can match the sheer beauty of their design, especially 68 thru 70. The badass-ness a Charger exudes at a cruise nite or show makes everything else look a tad wimpy. 😊 Anyway here’s one I just finished for a buddy, built like the box art but finished in Testors purplicious. He wanted Plum Crazy but I couldn’t bring myself to do it on a 68 lol. Box stock with plug wires. 358448FE-9631-4643-BB69-2DEE2332FC17.thumb.jpeg.8ae5df0184e5322d9bb9246052ef9d18.jpegBC2BAADF-9060-49C2-AF89-8C221D7D18F1.thumb.jpeg.9a7791273ab28a6e716065d3d6c12a5a.jpegA46B192B-D02B-4194-9AB8-2E0E7F2D3146.thumb.jpeg.46853569960f724652597a4a512026cd.jpegE23EC433-764D-4D02-8824-FB27D36A0DD2.png.553608d347b18c4e1fd50ba33a712874.png

All great looking cars, some exceptional work !

Shoopdog's metallic gray '71 Charger is a revelation, and has given me the nudge to get mine done. 

I got the 'Street Machine' (2002 box date) version, bargain priced, but will probably modify the stance back to 'normal' and definitely replace those awful custom wheels it came with.

dodge_charger_roadster_concept_car_5.jpeThis is the original 1964 Dodge Charger Concept car.   Many, many years ago I built this car.  It is a little "long in the tooth" now and showing its age, but I dragged it out and took a couple of new pictures of it.ku60jkkIGNjJlQ5xqcLSrx7WMsO5W-ezGsRLrjDf4CpejepTmg3mdqQ1cDN_Xxk-DcQEKAZFXFAnbwhMu9jXRK3Q0-WJp3fzT1F6ptU8ixN7PtTY7US1CqjlM6kuW1Vi5AukDIWSYAdF42YwwUl392u6yGEv1XQ6

I figured I'd build Dennis' car first, as i love Chargers.

The both the silver car and the red car have been started. 

I'll actually be making it a foursome, as in the original source, Dennis drive a 75 Duster. Which I also have a kit of. :)
