Jo-Han Dodge Dart '62 Convertible - resto in "gold'n brown"

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I got this recently from a modelling mate as a built kit amongst other stuff. As we all know, these days these Jo-Han kits come very expensive when bought new, so I took the  opportunity to get this one at a very fair price, although it took quite some work because the front quarters had heavy dents on both sides since the kit was new.

Of course, repairing those spots meant losing the beautiful "Dart 440" enblems, but that was the price to pay. I sanded down those spots and used Tamiya putty and sandable superglue for filling the dents. Then again sanding to make it fit to the body's contours. The result turned out okay in my eyes.

So nice.  Wish stuff like this was still available.   I'm to a point where this is what I want to build and detail.

Very nice!  The scripts in the "dents" were out of scale anyway!   A lot of Johan kits had that molding imperfection.

Gotta be one of the funkiest front ends ever. Looks really good. Like the color combo. As others have said, great save.
