Hi there.

Here we have a 69 Coronet R/T built from the SMH resin kit and using the AMT 68 roadrunner chassis. Steel wheels are from Scenes Unlimited. Color is Tamiya TS-84 gold, as far as I remember. I had some issues with the front and tail lights but they came out more or less OK. I also used some more available hoods. Hard to say which one fits better. What you guys think?

I like the single scoop matching colour hood the most.

I'm right there with you ( though I'm not sure that a Hemi model would have that standard bonnet --- I'll have to look at Hamtramck Historical for a definitive ) .

@justanothermopar : I'd like to suggest Tamiya Panel Line Accent for the door lines and other panels ( cowl vents , etc. ) --- even a fine line Sharpie would work --- to complement the black interior , and draw some attention from the V6R tail stripe . Looks lovely ne-er-the-less -- beautiful execution !

Looks like you did some extensive work on the headlights. Looks really nice!

I have an SMH body in the que. Good to know it comes out this nice!

Thanks. I also have some more SMH bodies to work with and looking forward to do so. So far I didn't use much other resin kits and cannot compare, but I think the SMH bodies are very good.

Not sure myself if those hoods are all hemi matching. I guess there not. ?

I already had in mind to highlight the door lines with one of the next models. Thanks for the advise, will probably give it a try with the Tamiya then.

Very nice build Sebastian!

The stance is perfect, I love the steel wheels and I'm partial with the black hood with the six pack scoop since I have done the same thing on my '69 MPC Coronet build. ?

Thanks a lot, Franics. At the moment I like the black hood the most, too. But also nice to see it with the others from time to time. Curious to see some pictures of your Coronet then.

By the way, I like your 70 GTX and 72 RR very much, outstanding mopars.

I will Sebastian, I don't want to hijack your thread but this will be the next of my old builds on the list to be posted when I have collected all the pics I can find and have some free time...
