custom 1970 dodge challenger

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

this is my second build for this year i built this replica of the hot wheels car dixie challenger  from 2 different amt 70 challenger parts cars  and a set of 80 volare side window louvers i got from tom geiger  and a piece of sprue i moded for the grille spliter i based the paint and decal work on the 2009 hot wheels issue but i swapped the colors of the flames and body for the model  the hot wheels  car is  a dark metallic blue  body with black flames   and i did the model  body in blac with blue flames which came with the  current issue of the 66 parklane which i als got this january  the roof was a pain to get lined up and glued right  the frond edge did not want to line up nicely with the top of the windshield frame 
the is some changes from the  hot wheels car i made like not having the grille split attached to the leading edge of the hood   the hot wheels car had 8 exaust pipes  on either side of the car  but i changed them to 4 on either side 
the hood is from harts parts resin

Quite a creative approach to take on this car. Good call switching the colour combination. I like those wheels too.

thank you  i was trying to look at it as how dodge would have made a real version over the how hot wheels  made thiers 
i have no clue were the wheels came from they were in the box of wheel backs and tires and rims  that was with the two big boxes of parts cars and rebuilders and other random pats i got at a fleamart a a couple years  ago
